^ INTERLOCUTOR CARD

You and your friend are discussing world religions:

Practicing different religions

  • Beliefs depend on the character, background and experience of people.

  • People themselves make their choices, decisions and are responsible for what happens to them.

  • If we are not capable of explaining some phenomena scientifically, we consider them being supernatural. So we have to develop science instead of practicing different religions.

  • Humans need religion because they need a moral reminder, the function of which is carried out by the God.

  • People practice different religions because the idea that we are not alone to struggle through life makes them feel comfortable.

  • People have an idea that there is some higher purpose to our existence, and that there is life after death for ourselves and our loved ones.

Features of four major religions

  • Today’s Major Religions just seem to be diverse, but in reality they have too many common features.

  • In a multi-religious society it’s impossible to learn the details of each worshipping ceremony.

  • The core of all teachings the supremacy of God and man's duty to Him and his fellow beings. So the details are of no importance.

  • People need to know more about four major religions in order to develop tolerance and respect for the worshipping ceremonies.

  • To understand each religion better we need to know about the holy book of each religion and even read them.

  • People should respect religious holidays and places of pilgrimage of each religion.

A one world religion

  • A one world religion sounds like fiction, because people would never agree on a compromise and will always defend their write to practising their own religion.

  • Too many people believe that God is not one and that rival religions that run the world will always compete.

  • We know about hundreds of spiritual and religious leaders meet regularly at the United Nations for a peace summit.

  • A one world religion would combine some features of Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Buddhism

How people choose their religion

  • Many people don't choose their religion; they are simply raised as a part of one by their parents and never change their religion.

  • Even if the religion is chosen for a child by their parents, it doesn’t mean that he will follow it.

  • Some people chose to be atheists and don’t practise any religious.

  • People choose the religion that follows their morals and answers universal questions to their liking.

  • If a person can't find a religion that fits, then s/he could consider not being a part of one.

  • A better understanding of how a person arrives at a belief can help both atheists and theist better frame their arguments in their attempt to reach each other.
