How is such a person to proceed? Many religious leaders ask the non-believer to begin by accepting their assumptions, attitudes, and definitions of what are the root human problems. The "outsider" is not encouraged to become informed about various religions and then make an informed decision about what each religion offers --- on the basis of some ideals, values, and principles which are transcendent and affirmed by most religions. Often the "outsider" is asked to begin by accepting assumptions, adopting attitudes and respecting definitions of what are the root human problems --- a beginning which will lead naturally to concluding that the religion of those making the request is the "best". This is a request to begin in a biased way! Is that a request which should engender respect for the religion of the person making the request?
