    Depends. Are you wanting them to be right down to the last detail, or are we just covering the basic tenets?

    no. The Hindu does not think that worshipping the deities he worships are the One True Religion.

    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.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    Indeed there are many religions which are not exclusive. But orthodox Christianity is. Interestingly, Atheism is also an exclusive belief.

    Here, let me break it down to you:

    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:

    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?

    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?
    Like I told you, your demand for empirical evidence is disingenuous and self-serving. Not until you provide empirical evidence for the existence of these individuals will your demands be given serious consideration.

    2. Attila the Hun

    No, but a large number of religious people does have certain bigoted views, but having one or two bigoted views does not make a person a bigot.
    If his own campaign does not trust him with a twitter account, how can anyone trust Donald Trump with the nuclear codes?

    Here:

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/histor...post1064803340 (Origins of Ancient Figures)

    Go talk about the unrelated issues of ancient historical figures at the appropriate thread and stop hijacking this one unless you want to be reported.

    Now, to get back to the point raised in this thread: On what actual empirical evidence can you assert that your religion is better than the rest?

    Please stay on topic and avoid distracting the issue with other topics.

    Regards
