Namaste NN and thanx, So as not to derail another thread thought I'd start this over here. On one hand you posit 'What's wrong with the ones we have already?' We'll ignore that for the moment although it does imply some acceptance of religions other than the one you were born with but... Let's get into "Maybe stick with the religious tradition you were raised with??" Why would we? Comfort? To appease the elders? Because we chose our parent's? Or becuase there is some divinity in the sperm and egg that got together in that space and time which indicates we should stick with the one we were raised with? But wouldn't that imply that we should not proslytize or convert or otherwise attempt to convince another that their religion is second rate at best?
