Notice how if we were to stop arguing about who’s right or wrong we could pretty much change the world.

^This. (Previous comment) I was wondering why Wicca was left out.
So apparently people are concerned why I left out wicca and its because I only had room for 10 pictures and I was running to the gym, so yeah. Plus if youre concerned why I left a religion out, you didnt get the whole point. Which is all religions contain the truth. Just like bodies of water some call then lakes or rivers or oceans but they all contain the truth. Truth being the water.
All religions, in their respective seas of fictional nonsense have, quite expectedly, iterated a shared concept.
This validates nothing other than each religion sharing the desire that people treat others the way they’d like to be treated—which, honestly, isn’t all that great a moral lesson (maybe for 2,000 years ago).
These religions did not stop—or even start—here. They started elsewhere, made prescriptions, told stories, made moral implications. In a few, lists were made of things to do and not do, punishments were threatened.
You listed 9 theologies, with a single quote from each. How often does this idea show itself in each respective tome? What is the quotient of golden-rule-references to total tome-size? If you handed me each of the 9 books and asked me to find a common theme between them, do we *really* suggest an objective read would point to the golden rule?
The reasons these religions keep shouting at each other is because they’re delusional and fictitious, and each other theology is a threat to their ideological security. Is that easy to hear? No. But it’s the truth.
What’s *not* true is enabling and encouraging people to think uncritically about their preconceptions.
