In all honesty, how would one go about finding out the correct religion/denomination or at least the most correct theology? Is it even possible?
If you're looking for salvation, you just don't.
If God is truly benevolent, then it would understand your skepticism and as long as you are a good person, you will rewarded.
If it is not benevolent, it probably isn't worth worshiping in the first place.
The answer is subjective, there is no objective true religion so as long and you live for god, being to help fellow man that seems to be the most objective thing followed in most religions. If anything is the correct way to do things that's it.
Honestly I've come to see Buddhism as the most objectively correct religion, since it's based off personal experience rather than dogma or doctrine.
Plus the more you delve into it and the more you practice, the more you begin to see the truth in all of it's teachings. These aren't just simple wisdom fables that help guide you the right way, they're actual descriptions of reality that can be experienced for yourself.
>If it is not benevolent, it probably isn't worth worshiping in the first place.
absolute non-sequitur. respect is based solely on power, not benevolence.
if something all powerful exists, you suck its ever living fucking dick in the hopes that it doesn't smite you...not because its "benevolent" or not.
Then good luck betting your eternal soul on a hunch, because you will never know which religon is the right one, and if you choose wrong you might end up in a worse position then the non believer
Have you considered the fact that no religion seems suitable to you because there are no gods and you acknowledge it?

Anon, today's treasure is tomorrow's trash.
What you believe to be true one year will almost certainly be different in less than five.
Probably no hope for me. I will never truly believe in God unless the Virgin Mary herself appears to me at least twice -- before and after I've been in the mental hospital.
> Female Genital Mutilation isn't an actual Islam concept. It's an African concept.
> Marrying younger individuals is the norm throughout history. How are you on /his/ when you don't even know that?
> Aisha was the only "young" one actually.
> 72 virgins is a transmission thrown out by all Islamic schools of thought. It's not an actual concept in the theology.
