Not an iota of difference in the fundamental teachings of the messengers:

Moses = To his Nation:

Shemalisten, or hear & do (according to the Targum, accept)
Yisrael
— Israel, in the sense of the people or congregation of Israel
Adonai
— often translated as "Lord", it is read in place of YHWH
Eloheinu
our God, the word "El" or "Eloh" signifying God (see also: Elohim), and the plural possessive determiner suffix "-nu" or "-enu" signifying "our"
Echad
— the Hebrew word for the number 1, which has the dual meaning "one" and "alone."

Jesus = To a learned man of Jews 1350yrs later (Word for Word):

Shemalisten, or hear & do (according to the Targum, accept)
Yisrael
— Israel, in the sense of the people or congregation of Israel
Adonai
— often translated as "Lord", it is read in place of YHWH
Eloheinuour God, the word "El" or "Eloh" signifying God (see also: Elohim), and the plural possessive determiner suffix "-nu" or "-enu" signifying "our"
Echad
— the Hebrew word for the number 1, which has the dual meaning "one" and "alone."

Mohammed = To Mankind 625yrs later:
— Say : "He is Allah, the One.
— Allah-us-Samad, Allah the Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need.
— He begets not, nor was He begotten.
— And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him."
Echad / Ahad / One

301ouncer;

A beautiful piece of film, but it doesn't answer the question, since it only establishes the claim of the Abrahmic religions for the existence of one god and hardly provides any evidence to the veracity of that belief to the exclusion of all others.

I'm confused again......(It happens more and more as I get older) but I was confusing the universal field theory with Mystic's idea of a universal consciousness.

I know that I will receive a supercilious reply,but to a believer it is evident in their heart,to a non-believer it will take death to realize that it is more than Sheol as it will be Hades .

Mystic's idea of a universal consciousness is currently the only candidate "source" for the universal field that has a known counterpart in reality (ours).

They are never going to find the Higgs Boson because it doesn't exist. And your idea of a universal field is different than Mystics.

They don't. If they could prove the existence of god, there wouldn't be any atheists.

I think this is explained by saying that God designed (on purpose) that there would be no way to prove his existence. That's because Faith is so important. If you could prove the existence of God, you wouldn't need Faith.
