“What has any religion ever revealed that was true? ”
“What has any religion ever revealed that was true? ” A question asked by fellow Blogger, John Zande, (infamous for saying a lot with a little) as he does cleverly HERE: http://thesuperstitiousnakedape.wordpress.com/2013/03/08/sorry-theists-but-its-an-inalienable-unarguable-truth/
stating that no identical religion has emerged twice anywhere on the planet….
Religion has been with us for a very long time. Many times it seems we have been about to throw off its clutches, to have some sort of catastrophe or hard time hit and suck us back in.
Karen Armstrong states that “As soon as we became recognizably human, men and women started to create religions. We are meaning-seeking creatures. While dogs, as far as we know, do not worry about the canine condition or agonize about their mortality, humans fall very easily into despair if we don’t find some significance in our lives. Theological ideas come and go, but the quest for meaning continues. ”
The quest for meaning…
It is indeed a common denominator in religion. But it exists with or without religion.
Perhaps instead it is a common denominator in humanity…
Do any fellow bloggers have thoughts on truth, that has been revealed exclusively by religion? or…universally by religion?
Could bode for an interesting discussion….
