The Argument from inconsistent revelation

If all the religions of the world claim to be the Truth, and their followers all think the other religions are wrong, how can any of them be correct?

But the one I was most cognizant of at the time was the sheer number of vastly, hugely, wildly different religions, each and every one of which claimed to be “the Truth”. I could never understand how a God, if he cared that we believed “correctly”, could let such a thing happen without giving unambiguous clues not only to his existence, but to which of those myriad stories and/or methods of worship was correct. The hidden God you had to seek on your own – but you were eternal damned, again, if you got it wrong – just doesn’t make sense. And it didn’t make any more sense without the damnation. They’re so wildly different that even “same God, different faces” falls apart upon examination. They can’t ALL be true, or even all have a kernel of truth – especially if, as so often claimed by so many of them – that God cares that you get it right. And if they can’t all be true, and there are no unambiguous, unmistakable universal messages from God as to which ones are true, then the most sensible explanation is that NONE of them are.
