How do you respond to the opinion that all religions are the same?
Dr. Ninian Smart discusses whether all world religions are the same. Dr. Smart says all religions are not the same. He respects the view that all religions point to the same divine being, but they do not all say the same thing. He says religions begin with different premises and emphasis, and the differences should be taken seriously. For example, Buddhists do not believe in a “god”.
