I'm sure it's the most familiar one to you. For the vast majority of religious people, that is how they choose their religion. Had you been born in Classical Greece you'd probably worship Zeus. Had you been born in pre-Columbia Mexico around 600 AD you'd probably be sacrificing to Quetzalcoatl. Had you been born in modern Tehran you'd likely be Muslim. But just because a religion is pervasive in the time and place you live doesn't mean it's true.<quoted text>
Honestly? Because it's the only one that makes sense to me.
Religions are simply reflections of the values and culture of the societies that invent them. Christianity is no different. It was essentially a reboot of Judaism. Likewise Islam was a later cultural revision. And even Christianity has changed rather drastically since the councils of Nicea decided what documents to include in the canon of the Bible. As we've discussed before, slavery is no linger considered moral, even though the Bible says it's fine, because when it's various parts were written, slavery was considered normal. Likewise racism is rejected now. And we are seeing society recognize that homophobia is also immoral, and Christianity will have to adapt to that change too. But to go back to the original point, all religions are cultural projections, but that doesn't make any of them true.
