    You still don't know what you're talking about.

    You have a point. Atheists are probably very close to having it right, but I'm just not 100% sure of it.

    I'm quite sure the Hindu believes his faith is the one true religion, especially regarding reincarnation and the untouchables. Perhaps some Buddhists do not, but that's not really a deity worshipping crowd...they are a bit more like agnostics. I wouldn't even call that a religion, more a way of life.

    I would guess that it is the same difference as Baptist and Southern Baptist. You'd have to look at the churchs' tenets to know the differences.

    Sure,

    What actual empirical data are there to support the Holy Bible's main assertion that this "God" concept truly exists?

    Re: Are People Of Religious Faith Typically Bigots?

    So instead of providing actual empirical evidence to support various religious claims a dodge distraction is made by requiring to support "individuals from antiquity" which have nothing to do with the topic for this thread.

    Here, let me break it down to you:

    Quote Originally Posted by Logicman View Post

    The question though was not whether he is correct or not, the question raised prior to this dodge attempt was: On what actual empirical evidence can you assert that your religion is better than the rest?

    See this is the topic of this thread, on what empirical evidence grounds do the religious have the right to be arrogant bigots? Not who is right or wrong.

    But moving on:

    Quote Originally Posted by Logicman View Post

    I also ask other religious concepts to be supported with actual empirical evidence. Including the main assertion that this "God" truly exists somehow. Why should people believe such nonsense fairy tales if there are not such evidence to support such statements?

    Quote Originally Posted by Logicman View Post

    You are in no position to set conditions of conduct. Especially not for using such conditions as means to evade the questions raised that (compared to these conditions) are at least relevant to the topic in this thread.

    Going through the data that support the existence of ordinary people such as these distracts the topic raised in this thread. So kindly posit these evading and irrelevant figures to its appropriate place in DP threads, and answer the raised question which is the core issue in this thread:

    On what actual empirical evidence can you assert that your religion is better than the rest? Provide this crucial evidence so as then we can move on to the next issue of: Even if you had the evidence, why be bigoted about it and not rather leave people be?

    But if you do you do not expect us to take your word that this "God" exists, do you? Provide actual empirical evidence to support such an assertion if interested to make your assertion believable to the rest.

    So many divisions, subdivisions and sub-subdivisions. All of them can't be right.
