Great thinkers have said not only that God is Truth but that
truth is greater than God. If it is a question of having either God
or truth, one should take truth and leave God behind. Following the
same logic one could say that truth is greater than religion and if
it is a question of choosing religion or truth one should take truth
and leave religion, however old or popular, behind.
Yet if we do this, there may be little left over of certain
religions for anyone to follow. Does
it really serve the cause of truth to make all religions equally
true? Look at religions and what they have done through history.
They are filled with superstitions and prejudices and divide people
into warring camps. Major religions have only sons of God, virgin
births, last prophets, bizarre claims of miracles, and many
assertions that contradict not only science but reason and common
The God of many religions, like a
tyrant, condemns his enemies to cruel tortures and exalts his
favorites even if they commit vile deeds in his name.
