Since all religions are dissimilar and require different propitiations to God, they are not compatible with each other and therefore there can only be one true religion. Ignoring the relatively minor group of people who actually chose their religion, what are the odds that the religion you were born into is the only true religion?
This is the problem with Christians. They play games with their false logical reasoning and move the goalposts in an argument when the Atheist is close to scoring a point. A perfect example is when you try to disprove the Christian God and they state, “are you saying that A god does or cannot not exist?” They add the indefinite article so that you must disprove every god in order to disprove THEIR God. This is truly a farce and it needs to be addressed by the Atheists community.
If God is in union with the churches, then why does he allow the molestation of children under the supervision of Priests? If God can do all things, why doesn’t he make sure that his Churches are ethically clean?

How can Christians object to homosexuality when the Bible demands that a woman be stoned to death if she is not a virgin on her wedding day? How many of you were virgins when you were married?
Belief in a religion or a religious ideology is the same as the sense of taste. In our entire lives we need evidence in order to live. We do not jump off a cliff because the evidence shows that of we drop an apple, it falls to the floor. When we are pulled over by a police officer, we need to show evidence that we can drive the car legally. We need evidence at the end of the week to substantiate our claim for our wages via timesheets. When we travel internationally, we need evidence that the little ones that are in tow are really part of our family. When we cross the border back into the United States, we need evidence that we are citizens of this great nation.
However, when we focus on religion, it becomes similar to taste. A religion can make you suspend all need for evidence and forces you to depend on belief to satiate our evidence seeking faculties. We believe because it makes us feel good. Soda is a prime example. We generally love the taste of soda but a study has found that a few ounces of soda is linked to an increase of cancer.
Will this stop everyone from drinking soda? No al all, because it tastes good and it makes us feel better. We do not see the damage that soda can do to our bodies and we continue with its consumption. Religion takes a similar avenue. We continue because it makes us feel better and all of the evidence in the world that God does not exist will not change our minds. Religion just tastes too good to stop. It satisfies our pleasure zones and allows us to continue to believe in this nonsense.
What say you? Is this analogy accurate or am I way out of line?
“The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality of happiness, and by no means a necessity of life.”
― George Bernard Shaw
