A fundamentalist Christian is going to say yes, every time, to this question.

A fundamentalist from any other religion is going to say no, every time, to this question.

An atheist is going to say no to this question.

The people in between are those of whatever religion who are not fundamentalists. They are also, mostly, going to say no. Some will say yes, but not as many.

Therefore, the "no"s are going to win, every time.


This holds true for every religion ever invented.

QED no religion is superior.

Isn't that all "superior" really means though? Something that is "better" than everything else. I would put forth that "better" is a subjective thing. Thus, whether something is superior is judged on the basis of public opinion.

Nope, In the dictionary, "superior" has a dozen different meanings and does not specify any criteria for designating something to be "superior". Just because it has four syllables, doesn't mean it is more exact than words like "several" or "often".
