Consider this hypothetical: There are four well established and respected religious groups (for example, Islam ,Hinduism ,Christianity, Atheism). Their doctrines disagree about the nature of the supernatural. In the interest of harmony they decide to get together and determine what their ideas about the supernatural have in common. After some time they release a statement of their commons beliefs about that topic. Question: Is their joint statement more likely or less likely to be true than the beliefs traditionally held by one of the groups? Thanks for your feedback!
