    All the religions in the world are the feathers of the same bird

    All the religions in the world are the feathers of the same bird i.e., God with different colours. There is only one God and there is only one universe. Similarly the man is also only one. Man should aim that one God and he should belong to all the religions in the universe. He should pick up the diamonds from all the religions and use in his spiritual path. One can have love towards the nationality. Every nation has some physical boundaries. The people who are living in that nation have that nationality. Thus there is a meaning in the nationality because it has physical sense. But in the case of religion and spiritualism there is no physical sense.

    Every religion belongs to every man. Therefore in religious and spiritual matters all the religions can be used. The human incarnation in every religion announces that He is the universal preacher. The message of Lord Krishna i.e., Bhagavat Gita is for the entire world. The message of Jesus i.e., Bible is for the entire world. The message of Mohammed is for the entire world. So there is no need of conversion of religions. Just like in science the invention of Einstein is useful for the whole world, every religious preaching is for everybody. Different scientists belonging to different countries have discovered different scientific inventions. The subject science contains all these inventions. If any invention is removed the science become discontinuous. Similarly the spiritualism consists of the preaching of the preachers belonging to various countries. The spiritualism must be built up by the preaching of Lord Krishna, Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, Mahavir etc. Spiritualism means truth like science. Different religions are following their preachers and they have taken the essence of their scriptures into the practice. Such traditional practices are like different experimental parts of Science. The scriptures of different religions are like the different theories in various chapters of science. In science the student does not distinguish the scientist based on his nationality. Similarly in spiritualism one should not have repulsion or attraction to any scripture or tradition in the World.

    The spiritualism requires divine virtues, which are emphasized in various religions. The firm faith of Islam, the infinite love of Christianity, the tolerance towards other religions of Hinduism, the social service of Bhuddhism and the non violence of Jainism are important virtues of the spiritualism. These are the practical traditional aspects of various religions, which are more precious than those scriptures. Tradition is the most important essence of the scripture.

    One must praise the firm faith of a Muslim on God associated with strict regularity and discipline. People are worshipping God either in the leisure time or on a holiday. But a Muslim worships God on every day whether it is a holiday or not. He worships God regularly at some intervals of time whether it is leisure or working time. The faith on God and the importance to God supercedes everything and every activity. This aspect is a page in the book of spiritualism.

    Another page in the book of spiritualism is a tradition of Christianity, which is the infinite love. Bible says “revenge is mine”. The Christians love even their enemies proving that love is infinite. Love is God. God is infinite and so Love is infinite. Such infinite love can only attract the God. The proof of love is sacrifice in service. Christians sacrifice lot of their money for the spiritual works. Their love is so unlimited that they sacrifice money even to the spiritual centers of other religions. Even if some religion is opposing their religion they fund the other religion and this shows their love even to enemies. Their love in the family bonds is very weak. So the love is stored in their hearts without flowing. This concentrated love in the heart flows entirely towards God and so they sacrifice lot of their earnings for the work of God. They do not store the wealth for their children, and they ask their children to earn and live after certain age.

    Hinduism should be another page. The house of every Hindu contains photos of different forms of God. At the same time they find only one God (Para Brahma) in all those forms of God. They treat the different forms of God as the different dresses of the same actor. This indicates that there is only one God for the entire world and Lord Krishna, Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, and Mahavir are only the different dresses of the same God. This brings the brotherly hood of all the human beings in the entire world.

    Another page must be Buddhism. Buddha kept silent on God because Veda says that God is beyond even imagination. His silence is misunderstood as atheism. He concentrated on the society, which is entire universe. All the human beings in this universe must be uplifted through right knowledge. Buddha means knowledge. Any incarnation of God does the same work.

    Jainism is another page. They do not kill any living being. The highest justice (Dharma) is non-violence (Ahimsa). God has given life to any living being. What right you have to kill and eat it? You can kill even a human being if he disturbs the peace and justice of a human society. Lord killed evil people in that way. But to kill a living being which does not harm you in any way is the highest sin. God has given sufficient vegetarian food to all the living beings. Science proves today that non-vegetarian food is not good for health.

    Similarly there are precious traditions of other religions which should be copied on different pages of the book of spiritualism. It should be just like a book of science. Spiritualism is the most important practical line to achieve the grace of the God. As the Science is the universal subject, spiritualism must also be the universal subject. The nations may have physical boundaries but the spiritualism is the single ocean in which all the religions mix like rivers. Every human being in this world must enter this ocean through a river and settle there as a sea fish. The man should not stop the journey while he is in the river. He should follow the journey of the river up to the end where he can find the sea with unlimited boundaries. The man is not moving along with his religion and is becoming stagnant as a river fish only.

    All the Religions of the World can be replaced with just ONE sentence:" Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

    The term "religion" stated above refers to humanity's behaviour towards one another sans the other BULLSHIT

    The Heaven, Hell and all the Divinity Crap is just BULLSHIT.

    BTW, this does not negate the possibility of a Creator.

    However, if there is a Creator the possibility that it is Anthropomorphic in Nature (as is in the Organized Religions of the World) ...... is ZILCHO.

    An expanded version of my thoughts on this matter can be found in my thread: "My Creator is the Sum Total of all the Laws of the Universe."

    I ran into you before, on my thread: "My Creator: The Sum Total of All the laws of the Universe."

    Assuming that you're not a lobotomized paramecium, what YOU don't understand is that you must first graduate from Jr. High School before you discuss Theological Philosophy.

    No OBJECTIVE substance whatsoever........all that is being propagated is based upon the subjective opinion of one that does not reason in logic and empirical truth, but rather projects emotionalism as paramount to intellectual honesty arrived to conclusion by observation of the objective, reproducible evidence.

    Yes. You did. And sadly you resorted to personal attacks there too. Which, of course, is the extent of your arguments wherever you go. Which is quite sad.

    And while I dont know how things are done wherever you live, in the United States of America all people are guarenteed the right to discuss whatever they hell they want regardless of formal education. In fact, the people who seem to think their formal education is somehow indicative of their intelligence, are sadly usually the ones who refuse to actually think.

    Now unless you are actually going to stick to the topic, which is whether all religions are the same, I suggest you stop trolling before you end up getting yourself kicked off the board. There are after all rules. I don't know why it's so difficult to be respectful with people you disagree with but I really have no desire to see you do something stupid. I rather relish having more people involved in discussions. Of course, that requires you actually discuss a topic.

    Oh, and for the record, i stopped being hurt by the insults of others in grade school. So if you think ridiculing me is somehow going to persuade me or anyone else to believe your points, you are barking up the wrong tree.

    Avatar,

    When you make judgments about the understanding ability of other people, don't whine when they do the same with you in a more creative, poignant, and accurate way.

    If you can't handle my concepts, and/or my conclusions, then keep away from me.

    Just saying 'no' is not an argument nor does it qualify as 'discussion' of the topic. Why don't you give us some good arguments why they're not 'different feathers of the same bird' as the OP argues? Discuss the topic, not the poster's capability to 'understand the intricacies of world religions' because by doing so, you might be offending the individual (a good Christian would never wanna do that anyway, would he/she?) and setting yourself up for subsequent personal attacks in response.

    And please, don't tell others that they're going to end up being banned from the board - you're not an administrator.
