The thing about religion is that there are many religions of which each claim to know absolute truth, at least all who claim to have a god who speaks through revelation and/or inspiration.

For a religious man each other religion is false, and he might look at it like an atheist looks at religion generally. He doesn't look into the mirror. He doesn't see that how he judges another also applies to him.

Characteristics of religions furthermor:

- emphasis on hierarchies
- truth is not be reasoned about but to be believed
- faith is more important than knowledge

: What kind of phenomon is religion? does it have a special terrain or boundary of concerns that differentiates it from other perspective? thanks all
