    religions are man made or have divine origin? how can we know this?

    almost all religions are similar to each other in essence. do you think it is related with its divine origin or plagiarism? if plagiarism why? is that possible?

    You are right that in essence all religion are similar to each other.
    This is the divine part.
    The men made are the changes and interpretations of the Divine.

    Good Question - I think and have confirmed to myself that religions and religious scriptures such as Islamic Quran, Christian Bible and Jewish Torah are revealed to their respective prophets.  So in order to really find out the truth you should read the relevant holy book in a format that you will understand, only then can you decide if they are man made or divine.

    This is a truth that you must discover for yourself.  I am also a seeker by nature as you seem to be.

    I personally believe that religions are man-made. Even if there ever was some type of "Divine" entity of some type, then everything thereafter throughout the centuries would have to be man-made.

    Just think of all the language translations there have been over the centuries and it can be really hard to get exact translations from one language to another.

    Now think about all the verbal pieces to it that were there before the written ones were there. If you then think about the verbal piece and consider the childhood game "telephone" where the last person's version is often nothing like the original, how can anything possibly be the way it all started?

    I mean, just consider the different versions that people read and/or heard or decided to disagree with who then started their own "religion" simply because what they "knew" or believed was different. In the end, we need to agree to disagree because it's all human beliefs.

    Of course religions are man made. Jesus Christ who left us the bible was a "Man".
