What steps would you take to identify a false religion?
Religion is essentially a doctrine that is not supported by evidence.
So I would look for evidence to support the doctrine of a religion.
If there is sufficient evidence to establish that the doctrine is true, then you have identified a "false religion".

Hey Chimp,
Can you flesh this out, please. Sounds bass-ackwards to me.
No problem.
Basically, what I was saying is that a "true religion" would be an oxymoron.
Once something is established (e.g. by ample evidence) as being a fact, it is no longer a religion. It's just a fact.
