Absolute nonsense. There've been many successful revolutions that weren't run on religious platforms. From the revolutions inspired by the Wobblies and Joe Hill, for example, to the French revolution, and the different renaissances - revolutions of subtle imports.

Really? Which Tolstoy?

Therefore, their "revolution" was run on a religious platform.

You said it.

What about if you just respect the person and his/her opinion then?

Kuryurdey,

It depends on what you mean by 'superior' or 'better'. Politically?

Politically Christianity and Islam and Hindu and many other faiths have been equally successful at forming their people into one cohesive group and allowing that group to attain power politically for themselves.

As they say: Religion is the only platform on which successful revolutions have been run.

Even in Communist states: Tolstoy considered his program to be christian. In Vietnam they had to tear down temples to Ho Chi Min.

And it's equally true that all of the places where these religous groups wanted political control, they used religion as the excuse for outright brutality and more, to get control of the area.

***

If your thinking of people's personal feelings about their religion, then it will mostly be a thing of yes my religion is superior and better, because it is my religion and I believe that your religion is false. How can I respect something I think is untrue?

A key component of a religion is often its incompatibility with other religions.Religions by their very essence assert superiority over each other.

The fact that one belongs to one religion is often a matter of coincidence depending on things like place and time of birth,place of residence e.t.c.If one grew up in Nigeria a 300 years ago,he was almost inevitably a pagan,300 years later he is often either a Christian or Muslim

Simply because there is no "empirical evidence" to prove His existence? Is there any proof that He does not exist?

Are you kidding?, Atheists claim superiority without a doubt and you're already proving the point. Ironic, isn't it?

Hmmmmmmmmm.

I think both Dru & Nferyn have a point, only I don't agree that the points are about true faith/religion, they are about men utilising religion (if you see the difference).

And whilst I am here, may I say an unabshed Yes Ooo! To the question posited. ~Christianity~

God bless

Religion is neither here nor there. Really the fight between Christians and Muslims is a political/cultural fight and has little to do with the religion of either.

Religion is just the most successful platform to run a revolution on and so people use it to do so, without really having a love of the religion.

@ Seun

A christian would never admit that his religion is inferior why?

because of the believe he has for that religion.

the same thing also goes to a muslim.

it's about you believe and faith.

How can one unfounded belief be superior to another unfounded belief?

It all depends on what you believe in.

a christian will say christianity is the greatest.

a muslim will say islam is the greatest.

So it's not about which is more Superior it's about your believe in that particular religion that makes it Superior to other religions.
