One God above all others?


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?

    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?

    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.
