Robin,

Which or whose "scripture" are you going to use to back up your answer? The Vedas? The Koran? The Tao Te Ching? The Torah? The Bible? The Book of Mormon? Aleister Crowley's "The Book of The Law"?

How can you make a case for any one of these purported holy books, that it is The Only True One?

Thomas Paine, a notable founding father of the United States, wrote a book called "The Age of Reason" in which he leveled devastating arguments against EVERY book that claims to be a revelation from God.

His argument ran that even if such an unlikely event did occur (God reveals himself to a person thru a book), it would be a revelation to THAT person only, and second-hand hearsay to anyone else. And I don't choose to base my spiritual beliefs on second hand information.

Paine then went on to document hundreds of contradictions and factual errors in both the Old and New Testaments of the Christian Bible.

But the real point is that you cannot use scripture (any scripture) to back up the truth of religion (any religion), because that tactic begs the question. The argument is circular, and does not prove anything.
