Why Do We As People Think Our Religion Is Better Than Someone Else's? by xgel: 11:36pm On Jan 03, 2011
Whether is Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Taoism, … etc. Why do we as people think our religion is better than someone else's? Are we that conceited or are we just blind to see that there is no true answer out there of existence of a higher being. I do believe in this higher being and I'm aware of his presence. But why is religion becoming a topic that people around the world are fighting and killing themselves over. Will society ever accept all religions? Will religion eventually be erased from society? Will this higher being show his or her face on this Earth?

Our Ego is the cause. These religions feed on the ego, as well as being driven by it. The ego drives humans into feeling superior to one another and religions help amplify that superiority complex. This is part of the fallen state of man. The ego is central to the fallen state of man and these religions(not all of them, of course) feed on it to cause all sorts of misery. The middle ages in europe; the destruction of the cultures of the meso-american indians; the carnage in the middle east in modern times; the spanish inquisition; the sporadic clashes in Jos; etc etc. The list goes on. It is a curse that we need to overcome.
