20. No, sorry...they are not

 

Religions do not "discover" truth or answers to your so-called "universal questions", or even gradually get closer to them. They declare the answers that they have decided by fiat and do everything they can to gain hegemony for their version of things, in as large an arena as possible. Once they have, facts, evidence and reason no longer matter, only clinging to dogma and defending it at all costs. Religion and science are most definitely not part of the "same quest" for anything.
