In all honesty, I'd ask a past abuser "who am I to you?" coz I've never been really clear on who she thought I was (lover, welfare student, play toy, theatre buddy, friend, daughter-figure, etc.), or how she related me to the rest of her life. I know I shouldn't really care about who she thought/thinks I am to her, but it would bring some final closure to 10 years of questioning

I think sane people who don’t wanna burn in hell will follow the religion even if they still find immoral. Debating would be so pointless!!!
I agree, but there still seem to be people out there that debate over pointless things. :lol:

I'd be interested in people's reaction to the truth of this question if anything... Would people still debate over religion? Or would there be others that decide to follow said religion because it's been held as truth? 🤔
There would be no way to convince those who follow a particular religion of this "truth" that you have found out.

Wouldn't that depend on how you found out said truth? If there were witnesses to however this truth came about then it might be more convincing.

I think however convincing it appeared to you, it would still be extremely hard to convince someone who is 100% sure that their religion is the truth.

In the context of 'the true religion', what do you define as the 'truth'? Do you define it as the empirical? Do you define it as tangible evidence?

In this case, there is no one 'true' religion: that's why there are so many of them, each with their own different versions of perceived 'truth', and each with their own parables etc.
Therefore, what would you define as the 'true religion'? How would someone go about determining which religion is the only true one, to categorically discount the thousands upon thousands of other ones?

The absolute questions I'd rather ask are why does religion exist? Where did they all come from? How have they persisted throughout time for so long?
My guess is that it simply gave people answers to the unknown, such as creation and death, and ultimately it gave people something to believe in

But to ask the question of 'which religion is the truth' implies that there's inherent truth in religion, and to imply that there's truth in religion is simply incorrect; if there really was only one 'true' religion, then theoretically speaking there would be no need for any other religion to exist

In fact, if we want to start talking about the one thing which gives solid, evidenced, repeatable answers, then undoubtedly it's science as we know it

Someone asked me this today and it really made me think, because I couldn't come up with literally one question. :lol:

What would yours be?
Who’s my biological father
