    Everyone claims their religion is the best one, and yet they have different beliefs.

    It might well be natural selection that put this tendency to believe in some higher powers into the human psyche, as believing that events have causes presumably had some survival value. It is inappropriate to personalize or anthropomorphize natural selection.

Considering the fact that all ancient civilizations who have developed independently of one another have their own religion, it appears that faith, whether in god, gods or something else entirely, is built-in within the human psyche. The question right now, which isn't very simple, is why is that so and who put it there?
    How about nature instead or making up some imaginary supernatural realm?

    I see nothing wrong with naming natural processes, --- Mother Nature.

    Now there would be something wrong with fools who believed she actually exists.

    There is indeed something wrong with fools who believed nature didn't actually exist.

    You aren't reading my post.

    The answer to the first question either makes the second question moot or necessary.

    Wrong.

    The canonicity of the four gospels were likened to the 4 cardinal directions of a compass -- north, east, south and west.

    In any case, that is not the reason for declaring the four canonical. If you must know, only the four can be traced back to the early christian traditions. Other gospels that were not considered canonical had dubious sources.

    Why you would get historical facts from a blog is beyond me. Perhaps its for the same reason that you use youtube videos to make arguments for you.

    It seems to me that for question on life, nature is a better place to go for answers that into a supernatural realm that you cannot possibly know anything about.
