Is it reasonable to believe that only one religious belief is correct.

Asked by: Iacov
  • Christianity is the one true religion.

    Christianity is the one true religion because the Bible says so. The Bible is irrefutable, infallible, historically accurate, and the word of God.
    Other religions are completly false and therefore practised by infidels and pagans who are blind to the glory of the one true God. So it is reasonable to that one religion is correct and the correct religion is Christianity

  • If god(s) exist,

    Then it would be possible that a specific religious belief is correct. That would not mean that anyone of them would be though. If X = a specific number. Then any guess at that number could be correct. Thing is, that does no mean that if everyone took a guess at the value of X that any would get it right.
    Thing is, only one religious belief can be correct as they all deny the other religious belief. This means that to believe that more than one religious belief is correct is unreasonable.

  • Relativity of Dictation: Religion's Phenomena in Rationality

    Since each religion creates a relative strong dictation with an accordance to a certain god/set of gods, any belief in another would be a complete betrayal from a follower, thus becoming relatively irrational to commit to. Therefore a follower would have to deduce that their religion must be the only correct one based upon the preceding religion's sense of rationality.

  • Two contradicting statements can't both be correct. Two religions can only be both correct if in all of there statements/doctrines no contradiction can be found.

    It's like asking: "Can Hinduism and Christianity be both correct?" The questions: "Is Hinduism correct?" or "Is Christianity correct?" is entirely another matter.

    Now let's go back. The main question "Is it reasonable to believe that only one religious belief is correct.", can be stated in a much more specific manner and makes answering it much easier while retaining the central idea of the question. This is my restatement: "Is it reasonable to believe that Christianity and Hinduism are both correct." If the answer to this question is no, that means there could only be one of them that is correct. The answer obviously is NO. In Hinduism there are a lot of gods, in Christianity there is only one god. The many gods in Hinduism are not portrayed to be the different manifestations of the same being so there are indeed many gods in Hinduism. In that respect Christianity and Hinduism can't both be true because of the inherent contradiction. And I have only stated the obvious one, and there are other contradictions as well.

    But of course there are other religions, the religion of early egyptians, buddhism, the religion of early greeks (whose to say it's not true), judaism, taoism. I only stated Christianity and Hinduism, to prove my point and to make it clear. In order for the original question stated in this forum to have NO for an answer, (i.E. That more than one religious belief are correct) it must find at least two religions that have no contradictions, as in 100% no contradiction. On all subjects such as: how many gods, how god created the world, what are/is these/this gods'/god's view on a particular matter, who are their chosen people, what kind of food to eat etc etc; these two religions must agree in order for them to be both correct. Again just enumerating the abundance of religions, and their inherent contradictions to each other makes the argument that more than one religious belief is correct an exercise in futility.

  • Logic, to contradicting statements cannot be both correct. Two religions can only be both correct if they don't have any contradiction to each other whatsoever.

  • No because they all have the same evidence

    All religions have the same level of evidence for their religion and god being true and real, namely 0 so until a religion finally has any evidence they're all equally wrong simple as that, I'm sure christians would disagree since they are in the majority on this website but that doesn't matter because facts speak for themselves and facts are there is 0 evidence for any god of any religion existing

  • Religion with no answer

    Simply put there is no definitive evidence to prove or disproven any religion there for it is not resonable to assume that only one of the many worlds religions is the true religion. Now I am not saying you should not believe any religion rather I'm saying you should not discourage the following of any religion.

  • No accuracy in any religion

    As there are milliards of people on Earth, and as each of them is individual, it is common phenomena that everyone's opinion does not relevant to other's one. Therefore, because of diversity of views about this issue, it can not be inferred that only one individual's or group of individuals' opinion or view is correct

  • Why would it be?

    Why would it be reasonable to say only one religion is correct in its beliefs when all religions have the same arguments for the existence of their god? What about the order of the universe? How did we come to be? Where does our conscience come from? It's all the same

  • Christians are full of shit, no offense

    You can't just say that one religion is correct and all of the others are wrong. If there is just one religion, then why would god have created all these other religions for use to believe in? I know, free will, but that to me is BS because what is the significance of that? Dear Christians, I was raised as one of you, but you aren't justified to tell people what's right and wrong just because it's your opinion. It's your opinion that there is the Christian God, but it's another person's opinion that the Muslim God (or which ever religion you want to BS with) isn't real. If you were raised under a different religion, you would be arguing the same stuff.
