It has been pointed out repeatedly that there have been thousands of religions and gods dreamt up by man over the centuries. What is intriguing and frustrating is how a theist can dismiss all other religions except their own, yet not understand why others dismiss the one they believe in. They are firmly convinced that their religion is unique and different. When the similarities are pointed out, they retort that because we do not believe we cannot understand. They have it backwards. It is because we do understand how reality actually is, that we know their religion is no different than any other

"I contend we are both Atheists, I just believe in one fewer god than you do.  When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."
- Stephen F Roberts
