I personally think that all religions should strive to coexist. An ideal world would be shared by Muslims, Jews, Baha'i's, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Hindus, Wiccans, Satanists, Heathens, Shintoists, Animists, Christians, Zoroastrians, and all of the other thousands of faith traditions man has conceived of, as well as irreligion.

I do largely agree with you, but at the same do you settle disputes? Because if history has taught us one thing, it is that disputes will eventually arise. The challenge is to create a paradigm which will allow for individual and group expression while at the same time protecting those who are young and/or weak (in power, money, resources, you name it) from exploitation.

So that's what I think of when I sit and meditate and pray with/to my own God. How to so shape a paradigm so that there is a supreme, unchallenged Authority while still permitting a maximum of individual freedom and expression in as many areas as possible. Not always a simple proposition.
