    Mainly we read the quran, but there are over 3000 other scriptures we can read, all with different names :)

    Depends on the context, motivation and nature of the discussion.

    When people randomly stop me in the streets to "preach" to me, likely I'll just tell them to leave me alone.

    Love to do so and I welcome people of all Faiths to share their insights as their belief is my belief. I consider it is a privilege and blessing to visit, pray and meditate in the Mosque, the church, the pagoda and synagogue as truth is taught in all these places and they are all my brothers and sisters. Light is good in whichever lamp it burns and a rose is beautiful in whatever garden it may bloom.

    Yes, that's why it also take long time to truly awaken from within, because there is so many aspects of a human being that must be purified to realize the truth of our existence:)

    They don't stick around long enough to talk with me. I jog after them with my information. I'm rather long-winded. They run away screaming.

    What Happened to the Hare Krishna’s?

    Website, above discusses how Hare Krishnas disappeared.

    All creatures need food. Hares don't require much. Just enough to sustain themselves. They have a religion of peace and tranquility. Imagine a world of them.

    What one calls truth another calls a lie. Ensuing wars are fought in the name of Gods.

    Fundamentally all religions are alike. Yet wars are fought over small differences.

    Sometimes that's not enough to avoid a war. Some believe that you are with us or against us....so war is inevitable.

    Many wars were engendered by religions, even if their scriptures spoke of peace.

    All possibilities avail themselves to those who are open to understanding.

    Those who start wars would have to answer for that.

    It depends. If we are having a conversation about their faith, or some other subject where their scriptures are relevant to the issue, I have no problems with it at all. But if you are talking about preaching at me? No, of course I don't like it. It's rude to push religion on people.

    There's nothing tedious about going through dozens of scriptures in order to find the truth.
    Yes it may take all of our life, but it's totally worth it. For us theists its a wonderful journey, to learn more about God from different scriptures :=)

    Wars are fought because of ignorance.

    Why should anyone do that unless I ask them? It will be an infringement of my rights. However, I already know, in detail, what they might want to say.
