"Then, if you beleive that God does exit, begins the process of trying to discover if any one of them, or none of them is true.@ Trevor - Then begins the process of becoming a scholar in each religion, to see which one, if any, rings true. Not…"

"Actually, many long-lived Eastern religions do not hold the promise of immortality ... at least not in the JCI (Judaic-Christian-Islamic) sense of personal immortality."

"If you don’t believe all religions are equally valid please tell us why they are not. The comparison to politics is a fallacious argument."

Why you left your religion.
