while I was browsing beliefnet after taking the quiz, I found this interesting article.

It says basically we can't know god directly, but we can experience the presence of god in different ways. He lists seven different ways, including the authority figure god, the creative god, the peaceful god, etc. I guess it's kind of like the blind men and the elephant story.

I thought this was a nice way to reconcile how people have such different ideas of god, and how they can all be correct, even if there's only one god.

Now why people are inclined to get adamant that their idea is the most correct one, I don't know.
