Questions:
1) Do you agree that religions interact with each other in positive ways? Why or why not?
2) Do you agree that all religions stem from the same prism?
3) Do you think that many things could be fixed if people believed that religions stemmed from the same prism?
Answers:
1. For me, religions doesn't always interact to each other with a positive way. Not all the times it gives a positive benefit for every one of us. Sometimes it may cause for discriminating the other people because of the religion they had. Because of they have different beliefs. Just accept what they belief about their religion.
2. Yes, because they're idea came in one religion then they're revised some of the beliefs and rules.
3. I think yes because people will have unity, and respect for every religions.

I attended a seminar about scholarly research. The keynote speaker said that an outstanding researcher must be thankful if he is questioned. If no one questions his work, then it is a religion because it does not entertain other views. This line reminded me of Christina O Phillips' questions. I am still reflecting at the moment.

Do you agree that all religions stem from the same prism? No, since the prism suggests the human perspective and implies that religion is a matter of human opinion. True religion is revealed from above as is explained in the Old Testament and New Testament which reveals the true God as the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ.

After hearing how pretty much everyone above liked the "agree to disagree" route, I'd actually be really curious to hear Haatim's own stance on this. From what we saw, he pretty much did have that stance with Abigail, as her views differed quite a bit from his and they were still able to become friends. Yet, I wonder how he would've reacted had her hunting been a foundation of some other well-known "rival" religion instead, and if he would've been as accepting as he was with her.

Religion is man's attempt to find, know, and follow God. Only God can show the right way.

I do agree with him and different beliefs is not a good reason to hate someone.

I have heard many stories from different religions and these stories are somewhat similar to one another.

1. Religions do not all interact with each other in positive ways because, for most religions, there almost always exists a religion completely contrary.

2. All religions do exist within the same prism because they exist for the same reason: to give meaning to an otherwise meaningless world. Whether polytheistic or monotheistic, each religion focuses on how to behave, the origin of the world, and explanations for natural or supernatural phenomenon.

3. Certainly, religious disputes would be solved, but people will always find something to fight about.
Where is the line between insanity and creativity?
Is the reality of the world different from how we perceive and experience it in our minds? Does physical reality exist apart from the human mind?

I hesitate to comment on this as it can be so divisive. I believe what I believe, but that doesn't mean we can't disagree in a friendly manner. I'm still willing to put my differences aside and be friends. Not everyone is like that, however.

With that disclaimer, I believe that the Bible teaches that Jesus is the only way to Heaven. So I would have to disagree with that statement.
I second that..
No idea is a bad idea.
