    About the many Ideologies/Philosophy-Religions, I like to use the analogy of the habitrail.
    Some religions have more reliable value and truth then others, all have some of the same visions in their own cultural wording, some more then others all at different degrees. So say the prize at the end of the journey is that Shalem (completeness & wholeness) the reward of paradise that comes from being all we could & should be.
    Then the best route is the direct tube in the habitrail leading straight to the food box. The more you obey the rules of the approach to the prize(follow the word's directed path) without straying the direction then the straighter more sucessful quicker the path.
    But those who disregard the directions from that which already knows (sits there waiting), then the longer more winding the path. The habitrail tubes that guide you all over the place sometimes further from the prize winding back around to eventually getting there.
    Some paths (religions) get you lost and back where you started and others are like the hamster wheel going round n round thinking you are going places when you haven't even left the starting gate. Most paths somewhat get you there but there can only be one that gets you there quickest and best. Then there is always that one hamster who is always in their own private corner with the built up pile of wood chips sitting in their own urine, oblivious to what the world smells like outside their own fortress and feces.

    That may or may not be the truth of it ... however, that exact argument has been behind thousands of years of religious extremism. So, if you're going to have issue with a religious belief, it's probably better to deal with the specific beliefs with which you take exception and not disparage a religion as a whole.

    Many have made an argument that my religious faith has no validity because it doesn't lead to their particular afterlife. They believe the prize at the end of my habitrail is eternal damnation. Obviously, I don't accept that interpretation but you have to admit, it's a subjective evaluation based on the beliefs of the evaluator.

    All religions are equally douche. Nobody has any proof of anything.

    So you don't believe evolution exists, nor that learning from our past helps prevent repeat mistakes and helps progress?
    You are saying you are a stasist who doesn't believe we will evolve & progress to achieve non linear time lines or messaging from the future to the past? You say there is no proof of a world to come (Olam Habah) as in no advanced future?
    If you don't believe in any of these things then aren't you in that nature as adversary accuser(sawtawn) against humanity achieving what it could and should be and self fulfilling your ideas if failure?
    Careful replying, if you think I don't exist either, then you'd be talking to yourself.

    All religions are made to deplete as much money from the intellectually gullible as possible.

    Evolution has nothing to do with religion.
