The emphasis is not how one acquires these principles, but what is important is that these principles are followed.The second classification in our list is religious skepticism, and it is the view that due to the nature of religious claims, particularly about the supernatural, we do not currently have the capacity to learn any religious truths.This view emphasizes that it can be edifying to learn from other religions besides your own, so there is no need to be exclusive and only take truths from only one specific religion.

Buddhism is categorized under religious skepticism because of the views of its founder, Buddha.
By examining and critically evaluating these likenesses, we are able to accurately construct a succinct typology classifying each religion by their nature and principle concerns.
For clarity purposes, this typology will be divided into three main aspects of religion; which include: 1) religious nature, 2) views of God, and 3) principle concerns.
Those who do not contemplate them are false." 3 What this means is that other religious systems are not seen as false and invaluable, but rather it is the people that don’t consider these other religious truths that are not on the right path to God.
Finally, Taoism expresses religious pluralism with its view that everyone has intuitive access to knowing and following the Tao.
The third classification is religious relativism, which is the view that there is no universal, absolute, eternal, religious truth.
Instead, religious truth is completely relative to 1) an individual, and 2) a society.
This view is considered pluralistic because it acknowledges that people have different spiritualities, and thus requires different religious truths or “paths” to obtain enlightenment.
Jainism expresses religious pluralism best through its analogy of “the six blind men and the elephant.” In this analogy, a group of blind men are brought in the presence of an elephant, and then are asked to each touch one part of the elephant.
