    I think it would be a better place if the religion they all practiced was what I think is the religion of G_d, which is using their religious lore and scriptures to help them live more fruitful and beneficial lives.

    weve heard already about this

    to zero but never forget not to put too fine a point on

    is NOT ALL about as good of an idea
    as having everyone

    such a word
    is that everyone seems to have their own definition
    that's why we conclude and to differ
    as it is written

    After this I beheld, and, lo,
    a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people,
    and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb,
    clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; and cried with a loud voice,
    saying,
    Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

    Revelation 7:9‭-‬10 KJVA


    And one of the elders answered, saying unto me,
    What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
    And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me,
    These are they which came out of great tribulation,
    and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
    Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple:
    and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
    They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
    For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them,
    and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
    Revelation 7:13‭-‬17 KJVA


    when liberty control by fate or necessity as of being free within society
    from oppressive restrictions
    and with the same manner unto what freedom has to offer
    for the sake of what is fair unto all
    nonetheless weve been there already sometimes elsewhere
    surely well , we do what is most expected
    as we thought it
    although it's not always going to be that way then
    with the help and mercy of the lord and by the will of God that is good and cannot lie

    conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man's conscience? For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks? Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do,
    do all to the glory of God.
    even as I please all men in all things , not seeking mine own profit,
    but the profit of many, that they may be saved.
    1 Corinthians 10:29‭-‬31‭, ‬33 KJVA


    Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this,
    To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

    All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me,
    but all things edify not.
    Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth .
    Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience' sake:
    for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof.
    If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast , and ye be disposed to go;
    whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience' sake.
    But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that showed it, and for conscience' sake:
    for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof:
    1 Corinthians 10:23‭-‬28 KJVA



    and
    notwithstanding that the hall was packed with wolves , our stands remain unyeilding
    always still standing on the ground to remind us that we are no better like adam
    created from the dust of the ground
    if we may so
    Now these things were our examples,
    to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them;
    as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
    Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed,
    and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
    Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted,
    and were destroyed of serpents.
    Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
    Now all these things unto them for ensamples:
    and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
    Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
    1 Corinthians 10:6‭-‬12


    the lord god who is good and who doesn't lie
    he is who created the woman eve for he may show unto the man adam

    are willing or at list save some time for a little information about
    the true name of the religion named after Adam and Eve?

    to till the ground from whence he was taken.
    So he drove out the man: and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden cherubim,
    and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

    The phrase self actualization comes to mind. A person can become self actualized without god.

    That might be true, but I was responding to your post in which the premise was that most people will continue to be believers. I thought the question was, if most people will continue to be believers, then under those conditions would it be better for them to all be practicing the same religion. My response was, on the premise that you stated, that most people will continue to be believers, then under those conditions, it would be better for them all to be practicing the same religion, namely the religion which consists of using their lore and scriptures to help them live more fruitful and beneficial lives.

    When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle,
    and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
    and said unto him,
    Go, wash in the pool of Silo´am, (which is by interpretation, Sent.)
    He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
    The neighbors therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind,
    said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
    Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
    He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes,
    and said unto me,
    Go to the pool of Silo´am, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
    Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
    John 9:6‭-‬8‭, ‬10‭-‬12 KJVA



    But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight,
    until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
    And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind?
    how then doth he now see?
    His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son,
    and that he was born blind:
    but by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not:
    he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
    These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
    Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
    Then again called they the man that was blind,
    and said unto him,
    Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
    He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no ,
    I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind,
    now I see.
    Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
    He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear:
    wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?

    whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead,

    And it came to pass,
    as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day,
    that they watched him. And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy.
    And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees,
    saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?
    And they held their peace. And he took him , and healed him, and let him go;
    and answered them, saying,
    Which of you shall have an *** or an ox fallen into a pit,
    and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day?
    And they could not answer him again to these things.
    Luke 14:1‭-‬6 KJVA


    For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
    Then said he also to him that bade him,
    When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen,
    nor thy rich neighbors; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompense be made thee.
    But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
    and thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee:
    for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

    I could never figure out the one or many thing when it comes to religion.

    Personally I view religion as an interpretation of the truth that is around and within us. Mind you I worded it dualisticly on purpose in light our views are primarily that as an observer. Forgetting that we ourselves are undifferentiated.

    At times things get embellished and fabricated but still remains the same exact truth around and within us that we all collectively experience in a direct and wordless way.

    Christendom (and other examples of people of one religion trying to dominate those around them) was a dismal failure. So if you allow religion in society, the more of them the better.

    But the best option is for people to realize that revealed religions and revealed spiritual paths do not generate provable knowledge. Mere "faith" kind of knowledge is useless unless it is based on sound philosophy.
