    Dalton, Rutherford, and Bohr had very different models of the atom, but they clearly all believed in
    atoms. One can grant that and at the same time say that it’s important for chemists to hold the *correct* view of atoms. Not all models are equally true or true-for-them.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perennial_philosophy

      Perennialism is a perspective within the philosophy of religion which views each of the world’s religious traditions as sharing a single, universal truth on which foundation all religious knowledge and doctrine has grown. According to this view, each world religion, including but not limited to Christianity, Islam, Judaism,Hinduism, Taoism, Confucianism, Shinto, Sikhism, and Buddhism, is an interpretation of this universal truth adapted to cater for the psychological, intellectual, and social needs of a given culture of a given period of history. The universal truth which lives at heart of each religion has been rediscovered in each epoch by saints, sages, prophets, and philosophers. These include not only the ‘founders’ of the world’s great religions but also gifted and inspired mystics, theologians, and preachers who have revived already existing religions when they had fallen into empty platitudes and hollow ceremonialism.

    YHWH says:
    He doesn’t lie. (He might give you what you want after you refuse the truth, but He doesn’t lie.)
    Earth’s land rose up from beneath the ocean.
    You should not bear false witness.
    Treat people, even non-believing sojourners as you would yourself. Murder is a sin.
    Divorce is a sin.
    Allah says:
    He is the best liar.
    Earth’s land was laid like a carpet with the mountains as tent pegs to hold it down.
    You should lie about your specific beliefs when muslims aren’t in the majority.
    It’s okay to kill people because they aren’t muslims. Also, cut off fingers, oppress them, enslave them.
    Divorcing your property is super simple, just say, “I divorce you,” three times and boom.
    Looks like….
    There are some stark differences there.
