Religious Pluralism or Global Theology? 41 theirs as the one true faith. What is more peculiar is that Hick’s pluralist hypothesis doesn’t dignify the competitors by calling them being literally false. Instead, it invites them to eat a metaphysical humble pie by withdrawing any claim to cognitive content and ‘downgrading’ their systems of philosophical theology to the status of mythological truth (or falsity). Odder still is the fact that Hick’s arguments in favour of his quasi-Kantian hypothesis speak more in favour of its mythological truth or falsity than its literal truth or falsity.

Further, the fact that grand or metanarratives might be in conflict with other rival grand narratives can hardly count as an argument against the possibility (and possible truth) of these grand narratives. As far as the pluralist theology of religions is concerned, it never claimed to be compatible with all and everything.
