Let belief in GOD unite us. Why should religion divide us. It beggars belief! If you meet someone of a different religion, shake his hand and say, "We believe in GOD!" Rejoice when he responds,
"There is no god but GOD."

Eradicate superstitious and artificial distinctions - become an atheist.

Actually, we should all just become actuaries and let the numbers be our God. As our society continues to advance, we will soon realize emotions are useless. Cold hard numbers (facts & figures) do not lie and will help us to better utilize our limited earthly-resources.

Nice idea, but if you think this will ever happen, you are even more delusional than the OP.

Oh, I see. I'd better hurriedly adopt your world-view(s) or thus ensues the name-calling and belittling .

I just call 'em as I see 'em. Sorry you took offense, but if you did take offense, doesn't that prove that you can't remove emotion from decision-making?

No. I can sit in some cold dank room and crunch numbers everyday/all-day with "scientific validation". You see it would not be gabfest who felt eugenics was applicable, it would be the numbers, output vs. input.....and then there was one.

What if God says the other religions are false?

So one religion has to be "right"? Otherwise "no unity for you!"?

Yes. That's how we reach out to one another in love and acceptance.

How can we have unity if we have 2 religions disagreeing to that extent?
