Is there a 'true' religion?

Posted by: SamStevens

"Isn"t it a remarkable coincidence almost everyone has the same religion as their parents? And it always just happens to be the right religion. Religions run in families. If we"d been brought up in ancient Greece we would all be worshipping Zeus and Apollo. If we had been born Vikings we would be worshipping Wotan and Thor. How does this come about? Through childhood indoctrination.""Richard Dawkins

I just issued an open debate challenge on this subject. Objective truth about God is no different than objective truth about anything else.

My question is that how is your religion(for those who voted yes) any more true than someone else's religion? People who follow Islam say their religion is true, and so forth.

Well SamStevens, the Bible is true and there's but one religion mentioned in the Bible and that is that of Christians.

Sam Stevens, Christianity and Islam cannot both be true because they are mutually exclusive. Christians claim Muslims go to hell while Muslims usually claim Christians are the damned ones. What makes a belief true? Is it a) how strongly the belief is held, b) how many people hold the belief, or c) whether the belief is true? Obviously the answer is c.
