If you think about what most religions really believe in … it is very hard to separate from the stories of Santa (he’s not real) or perhaps something as fanciful as the story of Rumpelstiltskin. As an agnostic – I acknowledge my own bias towards various religions and their stories. We all come to our own conclusions. My own point really isn’t that all religions are so ridiculous (which they seem to me from my vantage point), but I do question how a Christian can believe what they believe and think the story of Islam is nonsensical … and vice-versa. Don’t throw stones from a glass house.
Jeffrey Goldberg writes HERE:
What Mormons suffer from more than any other major religion is proximity. The foundation stories of Mormonism took place in the age of skeptical journalism, and they took place in the U.S. Most Christians believe in a Second Coming. Mormons believe the Second Coming will be in Missouri. Many Muslims believe that Muhammad ascended to heaven from Jerusalem on a winged animal, which has the ring of something mystical and transcendent. If Muhammad had departed for heaven from Tenafly, New Jersey, well, that would open up Islam to some level of derision.
Judaism is also mentioned:
Jews believe their prophet Moses was delivered tablets on a mountain top directly from G-d after he appeared to him in a burning bush.’
