For a Christian, The Truth is belief in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ - which, of course, has nothing to do with truth. Remember, “The Truth will set you free”.
I am sorry TT, I understand what you are trying to convey. i also believe that dialogue is an important ingredient in “understanding”. And in my view understanding brings peace.
But religious truth does not set you free, on the contrary, it binds you to live the religious truth regardless of your own observations as to truth.
Consider the 6 day creation myth. Does that set one free from science? No, it does exactly the opposite, it binds you to a demonstrable falsehood, regatdless of understanding that the universe is 13.7 billion years old. What to do then? Modify scripture? But you cannot, you are bound to your scripture as being the Truth.
I have no objection to anyone believing in a greater Universal Unity. It is a secular belief and allows for both spiritual and scientific interpretation.
But as soon as a religion sets forth falsehoods which demand “proper” behavior to “praise or please” this neutral concept, it binds and stifles, not set you free or give you peace with your neighbor. And therein lies the rub. My “proper behavior” in accordance with my view of Truth may offend my neighbor who follows a different “proper behavior” in accordance with his view of Truth.
Try to visualize such a situation in science. Every scientist could claim to have found the Unification theory, without having to offer proof or falsification. Science would be in shambles. This is why science has a fundamental command of “demonstrable proof”, which is absent from religion.
Only demonstrable proof offers peace of mind. In the absence of proof the search MUST go on, until the secrets are revealed by proof and understood by all. Only then we can claim Universal Truth, and with that comes Universal Peace.
