Are All Religious Teachings Dharmic?

From the notion of Sarva Dharma Samabhava the question must arise: Is everything that is taught in different religions throughout the world a Dharmic principle? Certainly all religions teach us, at least to some degree, to be good, to tell the truth, to control the senses, and other principles which are Dharma. Such principles should be accepted by whoever says them; yet they do not require any religious belief or revelation to follow them. 

They are universal ethical principles which are largely self-evident if we look into the interdependence of all life. Yet beyond this, religions do not have much in common. Some religions, not only Biblical religions but also most forms of Hinduism, have a creator God, while some, like Buddhism and Taoism, do not. While Dharmic traditions, like Hinduism and Buddhism, look to enlightenment or Moksha as the goal, for other religions, particularly most forms of Christianity and Islam, salvation from sin and heaven and hell are ultimate realities. 

Some religious groups regard the world as merely six thousand years old; others see it as billions of years old. Some allow the use of images in religious worship, others vehemently oppose it. Some religions are tolerant and accepting of other beliefs, others are proselytizing and prone to militance.
