They are nothing but dogmas of certain sect and belief.Religion is the opium of the masses, and this was surely not a criticism but an honest observation and we witness.All religions will have to meet on a common ground. All religions have a common aim, but the preachers agree to disagree. This happens only when they forget the common aim of God realization. They fight each other because they are not bothered about the goal and don't strive hard to attain it. no one knows what God looks like But we R confident that some force initiates us.Forget God but that supreme shd be remembered

Religions are basically movements for social reformation. Christianity was a reaction to the Roman ararchy when gods had been reduced to just idols having lost all their social relevance. Christ was nothing if he was not a social rebellion challenging the basic tenets of Romanism. Similarly Mohammed Paigambar aroose in a similar idolatrous atmosphere. He found the idea of an idolattrous god who could not shoo away even ants which were taking away all the offering to him abhorrant. His denunciaatinn of idolatry and insistence of a disciplined society worked wonder. From a community buried inthe sands of the middle east it roose to conquer the world.

Religion is a faith or belief in one particular thing that existed. If you believe that Christ existed, you are called Christian, if you believe the existence of Prophet Mohd., you are called Muslim, if you believe in any Hindu God you are called HIndu. What ever the belief, the ultimate target is the belief in the particular thinking and practicing the true spirit of the belief. Such belief is acquired and applied to thoughts only. But unfortunately, such belief is applied for comparison amongst the believers and ascribing to the roots of respective religion. In such comparison, the ascribing is going to character assassination of respective belifs. This can be evidenced in the recent past comments, books etc on Christ, Prophet Mohd. etc and needless to enlist the character assassination of Hindu Gods and beliefs.
