Just a little observation - Christianity does not claim to be the only way to any 'ultimate truth'. Its the twits who have sold the word of God who have made it look like that.

Well, we've gotten completely off of Scientology now, but doesn't one of them thar commandments say something like, "Thou shalt not worship false gods before me"? This would imply that only Judaism and Christianity are "truth", or am I reading you wrong? Also, at one point, doesn't Christ make the assertion that only through belief in him can you make it to heaven? (Unfortunately, I don't have a reference for this latter thing, and my Southern Baptist friend is out of town at the moment. He uses this reference to say that Jews are going to Hell. I think it's all a bit outdated and silly.)
