UNIFYING RELIGONS. It Can Happen. Asking for Feedback.

I am thinking of creating a small scale conference at my university. This conference will host ideally every religion represented by their club. The talks will first be through me (I have no cultural religious background, but understand their purpose and the need for the planet to pacify). I will identify how all religions present are similar and different. My belief is that all religions inherently have the same single moral value. This value is the purpose for religion and its key in understanding how we can unite them. When two religions argue about a conflict, I suspect the conflict arises from cultural differences. If we can identify this unifying value, it should rule out all cultural differences and bring all religions together.

What do you think?

Can this work?

Do you agree with me that religious unity is required for a better existance?

Does anyone know if this has been tried in the past?

The purpose of this TED talk is so that I can Identify what could go wrong and prevent it from happening or think of a solution so that there is no time for prejudice. The longer people have to dwell on a though, the more it becomes instilled as a belief.

Please respond, I am dead serious about this conference and I actually am developing a fear of being alive to witness what could occur in the next 50 years. Please respond.

    After Buddha was dead, his shadow was still shown for centuries in a cave-a tremendous, gruesome shadow. God is dead; but given the way of men, there may still be caves for thousand of years in which his shadows will be shown.-and we- we still have to vanquish his shadow, too.
