Please be careful to quote me accurately. I never said that there were only Christians and atheists in the world. I do believe there are those of Faith and those not of faith (which are by definition atheists -- "non belief in a diety).
Also, I don't think I disrespected anyone. I do respect all people and their right to hold what they believe. I don't have to agree or accomodate those beliefs, however. That does not mean I don't respect them or their right to hold them.
I am not talking about respect in this thread. Perhaps you should go to Vroom's thread on the Four Principles.
What I am after is the answer to Pilate's question: What Is Truth?
I agree that there is no superior religion. Religion is man-made. I think that all people who espouse a strong religious belief may be seeking truth honestly -- and I do respect that. What I would say, is that even devot Buddists, Muslims, etc. who wish to find truth, may not find the Absolute Truth. The fact that there are many opinions and religious beliefs in the world, doesn't mean that (what I will henceforth call "Capital "T" Truth = Absolute Truth)that "T"ruth does not exist. It is up to us to find it.............
