You want people to be specific to a particular religion?
Well since im a part of none, i will say what i thought while reading your post about all of them.
They arnt actually flawed if you do not think literally about everything that they all say, to the letter. Its my firm belief that whoever started it
all up (call them a god if you must) only believed in creating a structure of respect to live a civilized life too. You could say that the first
prophets and priests and such, were politicians and policemen on the day. Problem with that is not a problem when you are the only religion in town,
thats where real laws rights and such were created from, they just got the ball rolling for stopping things you wouldn't like done to you while being
fair to all and creating a respectful environment.
Im not calling politicians or policemen the priests of today either, but clearly the role of a pastor preacher any religions "professionals" couldn't
all be covered by one man, so we divided it up and creating a modern society. Because different religions, why all respectful in their own rights
dont work when mashed together and scriptures and texts are ripped own to every word in a sort of religious show down. Thats why we split up the
really good ideas that they did all agree on, into laws while trying to preserve each religions right to exist.
I dont mind who believes in what, but in a land with laws, you stick to those whoever you are, and so will i.
The only flaw i see is that they have run their course for the modern man, but since the belief without any proof of anything is so powerful is humans
practicing it for 100,000 years, its likely its actually a part of our genes to have a predisposition to believe. So cutting our ties with an old
control system for civilization and going to the next, is not worth the argument and loss of life or land over. Move forward, not back and all
I hope that provides something more than just a wall of text to read
EDIT: There is something to be said for the fear of something 'else' other than a punishment creates a more solid structure, but a modern law based
society can achieve that too if its believed in and respected. Some people will always be bad without the fear of God, because they dont respect or
