Do you believe your religion is the one true religion?

Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

Christianity is very but as true as Zoroastrianism, or Hinduism. Zeus and Prometheus every bit as real to me as the holy trinity. My religion is that all religions are exactly that, religions. They are curiosities, fun common interests to share with people, or to argue and slaughter people over. In the grand scheme of things though, they are just mythology, and will never supplant actual factual knowledge. Even if for some people myth is a makeshift substitute for actual understanding.

No. Muslims, Jews and christians have the same god but they all have different views.

I went to the open house during the sihk parade and learned they teach the same message of peace and treating people well .

It's not the teachings that are wrong it's how some people interpret them

All religions are a human construct as are their gods, hence the similarities.

Most people of faith believe that what comes from God is perfect, but becomes flawed, sometimes in evil ways, in the hands of fallible man. Ideally, rather than believing we have all the answers, people who practice and/or share their faith simply do the best they can.
My fervent hope is that you and your tax dollars will be reunited in the afterlife.
