I've noticed that people want to ask questions on controversial topics, and that answers and comments devolve into verbal aggression on both sides. (Me included I found - my sincerest apologies!) Often this is over religion. Here is lies my question: Why is it that people insist that their God is the only? And that all other Gods are inferior or non existent. That all people must follow te rules of their God, and only theirs. Aside from the Bible or Koran stating so - why is this done? Is it not more righteous to acknowledge others but not worship them than to deny existence?

Good answer, I like the way you've thought about it.
Even Jesus declared the two greatest commandments is to love God with all our minds, hearts, and souls, as well as to love our neighbors as ourselves. If we did that, we would definitely have much more peace. :-)
I like the way you've looked at it. Thank you for your answer
Thank you for your answer - I agree with the last statement!
They must've had the kool-aide...and want to share.
I don't think that most Christians claim or believe there are no other gods. The bible talks about the Greek gods, the Babylonians gods; Dagon, Baal, etc. To some cultures, those gods are worshiped. But they are not the one and only true God.
Thanks for your answer. But the point is - who says yours is the only? Or the "one"? Other than the Holy Book of your religion? Why not acknowledge the others respectfully and worship whomever works for you?
Hmmm, I agree with The Golden Rule in this instance. Thanks for this answer
Thanks for your answer IDONO - I like that you've given why you and yours would do so, but considered the thoughts of other people, and their commitment to the same.
I will have to go look at this hub. Often people refuse to even acknowledge their existence, let alone that others may worship them. Thank you for your answer.
