When it's comes to exclusivist perspective on truth, atheists are generally in the same bandwagon here as Christians, and Muslims, more so than with buddhists and hindus.

Saying the scope can be opened beyond your view & thinking that view is right is still thinking you are right. Which is still applied via that.

That's not a direct logical only on/off switch case you would say is wrong in this description.

(I see you're just inferring the concept of "exclusivity" despite it's non explicit manner being in the statement)

It's certainly not true for all forms of buddhists, but people when wanting to apply it to reasonable cleanliness want to act like Zen Buddhism is the majority form when those realms are probably a bit more like a quarter, if that high up.

I have no idea were to begin to parse out whatever your point is. Perhaps there's a valid one in there, but I can't decipher it.

I'm not sure you're aware of the fact that your style of writing comes off unclear and vague, and I doubt I'm the only one that's ever pointed that out to you. You seem to have a habit of expressing things in way that's far more complicated than need be, and perhaps need to find a way to communicate in a more direct and focused manner.

Liberal Christians, and also many Catholics I know, accept that the universe is billions of years old. I also think ancient Hindu cosmology was nothing to sneeze at.

That said, I get your point, Brian...there are many religious folks who will not believe it because they take the Bible and other holy books in as literal a way as possible. And that can be a scary thing and certainly has held us back in many scientific pursuits IMO.

I'm well aware of it.

Yes, a direct focused matter would help as it would also help you. Your thinking is routine in this manner of ignoring direct messages and ranting onward to state something against some assumption you made. You went on about "exclusivity" which is not a component that's actually or needingly is there in the argument.

Your basis for that is flawed as it is not direct nor a sound connection to the post.

I think I'm as direct as it comes, if not too direct and narrowly focused.

When you hold a view that your religion is right and other religions are wrong, when you believe that you're religion is true, and other religions are false, this is about exclusivity.

This claim as a general statement is perhaps true when it comes to Christianity or Islam in general (though there are dissenters among the flock as well), and perhaps to some degree Judaism, it's not true of Hinduism, or Buddhism as a general statement of these traditions.

Orthodox Jews in general believe that the universe is billions of years old ? Or it depends of individual rabbi's opinion ?

Wrong, not all religions subscribe to exclusive monotheism, which is primarily a thing among judea-christian traditions, but not really true for Buddhists or Hindus.

It's "Judeo-Christians", church lady. Snort. Judea is a geographical location. .
