Why do religions differ and not agree Why do religions differ and not agree

Ever really noticed that you are alive? Notice that the chair you sit in is not alive. There is an obvious difference. But what is this thing called "life". What is life?

Life is able to control the world around it. It seems to be able to communicate. Life displays emotion, which is a reflection of life in some way.

So what is religion? Religion appears to be people trying to work out what life is, and how its works.

If I understood what life really was, could I be happier? Life seems to enjoy things from the physical universe - money - food - drink - sex - but these same things do not bring total happiness - but do seem to have some bearing on it - but they seem to centre on the body. They seem to be connected to the senses. It would further seem that life has to consider these sensations in some way to be happy.

Religion appears to be where a group of people have agreed on some answer or answers to the above, and those people in turn feel and experience that their own experiences are correct. They promote it.

But really life seems to be more complex than that. So no single religion may yet have the absolute ultimate answer. Maybe this is why there are so many religions, and even variations of religions. But, because there are so many variations, it does not mean that any one of them is wrong, as religion seems to work for that particular person or that group. And as no religion has a monopoly yet with the absolute ultimate answer, then perhaps the rest of us could respect those who are at least having a go to work it out, and maybe even try one or two ourselves.

Maybe nothing has gone wrong with man's religions to date. Maybe it is very survival to have many different groups looking for the ultimate absolute answer to life and beyond. Maybe with more people searching, experiencing, that absolute ultimate answer will happen. Perhaps our religions just have not evolved enough yet. Possibly it could be that man has not evolved enough yet to experience the absolute ultimate answer.

As to God, his existence could be considered to be the absolute allness of all I think. But some say that God confuses us with so many mixed messages. Yet, if God was an absolute allness of all (and if someone has a better definition please supply one) maybe it is not God sending out mixed messages that confuses us. Maybe it is man that has the confusion by receiving mixed signals. What do you think?

What is The Full Story of Scientology
For many people who read only the media they will have picked up on the cosmic speculation in a few of Scientolgys 100,000 pages of text. Most religions have some kind of speculative belief that man is not alone in this universe. For the ordinary man such a thought that the only life in this universe is on this world could be considered very insular. Per some Scientists, this universe is teeming with life. Mohammad said that all Muslims must understand all religions, even the religions...

Scientology A Basic History
Scientology: A Basic History By the Church of Scientology of Canberra Scientology is perhaps one of the most controversial religions to emerge into the twenty first century. In this day and age, religion itself is controversial enough. But a new religion, growing, in the face of materialism, against the consensus that all is matter, that does stir the pot. Certainly, this same growth and controversiality has been common with the evolutionary steps of all earlier major religions today....

Apostates What Are They and What Motivates Them What Motivates Apostates of Religion
What is an apostate? An apostate is described in a dictionary as someone who abandons what they believed in, their faith or cause (Websters Dictionary).

There are natural reasons why people leave a group. Here are some of them. A person could get false data on the group by a third party that turns them against their former...

How To Use A Dictionary
When a person reads past words he does not understand he goes sleepy, goes blank on the reading material, and may eventually give up study of the subject. Words have meaning. Many words have more than one meaning. Going past a word or symbol has physiological affects on the mind as said. So students need to address this phenomena with dictionaries. But dictionary can be daunting to many of us. Some students have even been taught at school that dictionaries are unnecessary, and that they...

Scientology Media Controversy What is it All About
Historically, bold new things which changed man drew controversy and criticism. Cars, planes, internet, science, religions, were all controversial once. It was said man would not be able to travel faster than a horse, as God had deemed it so. Man should not fly as God had not given man wings. The Earth did not revolve around the sun as God had made the Earth the centre of the universe. Those who proclaimed the contrary were heretics, sometimes put to death. God never made these...
