If each of them practiced with true faith, they would get along fine and exude respect for each other.
They'd have a high probability of rescue since they've got all of the major religions covered and at least ONE of them must be praying to the one true God.
When they are rescued, Ouch, they are going to realize that they were all praying to the same God all the time. :-) :-)
They're each going to think THEY were the only one praying to the one true God.
ha ha, absolutely! Either the divine power or the political power will save them.
all of them will become friends and discuss abt world.......and their religious view points...........
As individuals, without outside pressures? They will all get on together just as much as any other 4 people would. Individuals are usually intelligent sensible people, it's crowds/groups that are the idiots and fools It's like when I meet an American I think he or she is a reasonable, friendly, helpful good natured person (and that's true!) but when I read about AmericanS I think they're all f**g idiots who shouldn't be allowed off their continent... lol
I think Buddhism is also Hindu.
I guess the Christian would pray to J.Christ and God.
The Muslim would pray to Allah.
And if they are rescued they'd give thanks to Allah and Jesus/God but not as much to the sailors that actually found them. Hopefully those sailors are not gay.
Hinduism and Buddhism are very different.
Different ok, but i wouldn't say very different.
Wasn't the first Buddha born a Hindu prince ?
buddhism IS hindu? oh dear, hence the arguments would start, out of ignorance and lack of understanding. respect, from robbie
would you say MANY GODS as opposed to NO GOD is a minor difference? i feel a war coming on. come on iscariot, admit you are wrong and say sorry before the warheads are activated. respect, from robbie
yes, prince gautama.... also jesus was born a jew. respect, from robbie
Wrong? I said i think Buddhism is also Hindu. If i make a mistake thats ok. Because by saying 'i think' instead of saying 'it is' im already admitting to my ignorance.
the hindu and buddhist would feed the other two
the christian and moslem would argue and steal food from each other, convinced they were being unfairly treated.
respect, from robbie
There, it already started. :-) :-)
yup, sad but true. i am a realistic optimist. respect, from robbie
Gilligan's island 2013?
They would get along. It's when you have huge populations of victims of religion, that you have violence, because of fanaticism coupled with mob mentality.
It sounds as if an assumption has been made that they automatically would not get along, even in a unique situation. When we seek to find only the differences of our believes and values we miss out on sharing the 97% that connects us all together in common as individuals, as groups and as nations. Yet more importantly we devalue ourselves as human beings, as a unique feeling, thinking and achieving species with opportunities and choices like no other creator on the planet.
The Islamic would butcher them all in their sleep for food and justify it somehow.
they would do ok,as long as there are no jews there.
That would be impossible. They couldnt fit on a small island.
One each, right ? Unless the island is boat-size or something like they show in animated movies.
well, if they only were the representation of the religion and not critical thinking people, I would have to assume that everything would be fine until the Christian decided to convert any one of them. Everything is fine until the Christians get involved. A true leader of Islam would respect all prophets of God, including Jesus. A Hindu would praise all things also. A Buddhist would seek the eternal truth within themselves. A Christian would belittle everyone else's faith and call them false, then try to convert and preach to them all, telling everyone whether they're listening or not, about how Jesus is the one true savior, Mohammed is a false prophet, Hindus have it wrong for there is only one god and Buddists have it all wrong even if they believe in love and peace and the pursuit of individual intellect and peace. Above all else, the Christian would be the most annoying. I would wager that the Buddist would come to the conclusion that to live happily on the island that the Christian would have to go. He would speak with the Hindu and the Muslim and they'd decide that an honorable death at the hands of the Muslim would be the best way to deal with the problem. The Hindu would pray to Shiva for a safe journey of the soul, the Muslim would bless the sacrafice that has to be made and the Buddist would go back into a trance to continue uninterrupted to a path of enlightenment. Then, somehow the sons and daughters of the three remaining would grow a world rich in culture and science and live together happy and violence free.
do you know the Buddhists in sri lanka did the worst atrocities? just as example. In many countries, they cannot stand vegetarian diet for a week? religion is separate and human behavior is separate. can't generalize.
They would get along fine as long as they avoided specific talk of religion. If they talked about religion there could be conflict. But it would be very possible to get along fine.
Just because you don't believe somebody is practicing the true religion doesn't mean you can't treat them with respect and diginity. Actually if they were open minded they may find each others religious practices fascinating if not true.
They'll play pinochle twenty four seven.
As Love is the core of all religions, they would get on fine.
God will give up on us. That island is already called Earth, LoL.
On a serious note, yes, all of us need to be more understanding and tolerant of each other's faiths, a lot more than we are currently. And that includes the agnostics and atheists. All of us should realise that Faith should be strong within but in the common island, we can't create further islands in our minds. In fact, I would say, that if we all followed our respective religions appreciating the inner significances of the teachings, it would make better individuals AND a better island. The problem is not so much about the religions themselves, but the practitioners who nibble at the surface, mask their hypocrisy and interpret grossly. Take your religion and go inward to reflect on it, and outward to manifest such reflection when you move away from the altar.
The Christian and the Muslim would kill the other 2, then each other, and the island would live happily ever after.
Well Buddhism isn't really much of a religion but more a way of life. Since The Buddhist and the Hindu both believe in reincarnation, they will both try to swim off and if they die, they will just enter a new life.
The Christian will try and kill the Muslim and vice versa thinking that they will just get into heaven if they die.
The Satanist finds the island 3 days later with everyone dead. :(
The Christian would be constantly praying (out loud) for everyones salvation and wouldn't go to close to the others in fear of evil spirits.
The Muslim would be up at sun rise praying to the east and plotting his next mission.
The Buddhist would be sitting cross legged beating his singing bowl with a contented smile and wanting to bring peace to all regardless of their faith.
The Hindu would be lost because there is no cows to pray to.
Not a good combination to put together on an island they would probably drown each other.
hindu's don't pray to the cow, they respect it.
Good question, that would be the wise and obvious thing to do but not saying that's what all christians would do but a great majority would be praying.
