A very BIG problem with religion, for example judaism & christianity is mistranslations. The greeks mistranslated a TON from the ancient scriptures, for example. The hebrew word "sheol" means the grave, where as the greeks mis-translated this word for their word "hades", when translated into english, it became hell. With that one mistake it changed an entire meaning of alot of things in scripture. The catholics really messed it up. When compiling the "bible". They changed verses, added verses & destroyed entire scrolls that they didn't agree with. They used religion to control the masses. There is an awsome book entitled, "Misquoting Jesus" by Bart Ehrman. I strongly suggest this read for everyone.edit on 7-8-2011 by NeoAlef2012 because: (no reason given)

There have been non stop arguments in the past about the true religion, my simple thought on it is they are all right, and they are all based on the same god. Heres how, consider how differnt humans precive things. take a painting some one might see one kind of message portrayed in it, and another person could very well see the exact opposite, same thing with songs, speeches and pretty much anything that is open to be interpreted by the human brain, so couldnt the same thing be applied to god? someone might have a differnt perception of god than someone else, those two people could than go find some other people with a similar interpretation of god and than two completly differnt religions could be formed because of two differnt preceptions of the same entity(for lack of a better term). so if people were all to interpret things the exact same there would be only one religion, at least in theory. So thats my look at it, multiple relgions based on the same god, they are all equaly right.
