If there is a God, how could you know which religion is real?

It seems like people's religion, at least initially, is determined by their culture. You never have a kid become Christian or Muslim if they've never heard of Christianity or Islam. It must be taught. It doesn't make sense to just believe you happened to be born into the right religion. What could you do to determine which religion, if any, is the most likely to be true?

When the religion doesnt force you to believe or become acts of death division and hate for another.

I like that. Only believe in a religion if it doesn't force itself on you and doesn't add death, division, or hate to other people. If everyone believed that it would be a much better world for everyone.

no respected religion teaches any of those, as all those acts go against natural human nature. however, there are several examples where religious causes have been hijacked and twisted and taught/forced on a people. leading to massive casualties and ultimitly a refermation of sorts.

Yes, I feel like the reason I'm so antagonistic about religion is I feel it ruined my childhood and causes my mom and sister to suffer to this day. It makes me so angry at religion every time I hear about what they're forced to do for the church (like they keep making my sister have kids) or they won't let me talk to my nieces and nephews unless I go to church.

im sorry to hear that about your childhood. and that is a small example of religion being applied the wrong way, in my opinion. for the sake of clarity, i hold no believe in an omniscent being, God, or souls or spiritual connections of any kind. but that being said, i believe and practice many of the morals of christianity. and when it comes to my kids i dont hold them back at all from any religion. if they want to go to a babtist church ill take them, and next week want to go to a hindu temple ill take them to that too. i have nothing against any religion. i do however have a problem with people trying to force other people to believe a certain way. everyone is an individual and has a right to believe whatever they want, unless it harms or demeans others of course. as far as your other family goes. if your a child your stuck with what you got. you gotta deal with it. but eventually youll be an adult and there are laws in place saying nobody can force you to believe anything you dont agree with. however i can see the point of wanting to please another or conforming to keep peace with those close to you. but in the end its a choice. you choose to stay and put up with it, or not.

Looks like it… I’m going to have to check for the clip on YT. I just hit the GIF button and searched for “flying spaghetti monster.” Pretty much the only result. 😆

Haha I totally forgot this episode! It's crazy how that show is still relevant 20 years later. The end is so good from the person who doesn't believe in evolution, "Huhshaw! Things don't exist just because you believe in them!" I miss you Futurama.

Religion is used by some people as a guide in life. Others use it as a tool of manipulation or control. There are different kinds of religion. Despite this, some claim that theirs is "more right" which is ridiculous as none have been proven in our reality. That being said, something may be up there. I don't doubt it at all.

🏆 The only thing we know is that there's a lot we don't know. I agree it doesn't seem like any of the religions are fully true if true at all. I think the truth is probably much greater than anything we can imagine as mere mortals.

I deny religion. I choose spirituality. I believe reality can be explain with both science and spirituality working together not separated. I believe there is logic to reality makes me believe there is intelligent design. I like to believe there is a God. Just not as religions portray them. I think one day science will progress enough for us prove spiritual side exists. I don't believe the sum of our beings can be left to neurons and chemical reactions.

Just curious, what do you mean by "spirituality"? Do you mean like people have souls which must be cared for separately from their physical body?

Spirituality I feel is more then that but yes. Souls to take care of, that you can give off certain type of energy like positive or negative, and like beings of light, beings of darkness, god(s?), etc. As spiritualist it's a journey of looking at other religions and beliefs and finding truth or what resonates with you from them. It's not guideline religion. My view anyways. Another spiritualist can interject if they want.

Interesting! What makes you believe humans have a soul? Do you believe a soul is unchanging, or does it change over the course of your life? (in the spirit of openness I just want to say I don't believe in a god or souls or anything supernatural but I used to and I love to hear other people's opinions in case there is something to learn)

A lot of this make me believe. Main on is intuition or sixth sense. That moment person knows something with no reason for them knowing. Unique how people think. To for instance twin or triplet. They could look the same and have same experiences yet be so different. There's something else there. I know there no way to prove a soul but I feel logically speaking you could make a lot of valid arguments on possibility of there being souls. I believe a soul can change but more of in manner of plant growing. Plants constantly change as they grow. Still same tree but as years go by it changes subtly but it'll never be a sprout again. Doesn't mean someone can't be stubborn and choose not to grow and stunt their own growth. I love the idea of soul because it means a part of us will keep going even after we shed our mortal coil.

I have read a lot of the Bible and parts of the Torah. I have only read the first few chapters of the Quran. I am currently reading the Tao Te Ching. I'm trying to get a better understanding of all different beliefs.
