I'm an agnostic,which is someone who isn't sure if there is a god or not,I'm just trying to make sense of the world's religions because there seems to be at least a little bit of evidence supporting them all.

I am a convinced Atheist. My belief is that God did not make Man; Man made God!

I suppose that the "religion" of the Sun and the Moon being the creators of Life is nearest to the truth. Science would agree with that!

None of them, although you might be interested in Sam Harris' religion-less spirituality:

He had me at the first three points: 1. mutual exclusivity of religious philosophies, 2. how the sectarianism divides people, and 3. how it's just possible that we don't need an infatuation with mythology to have fulfilling lives.

On that third point, while I like mythology, not everyone should have to. But it does highlight something in your question, which is that religion might not be so much about Truth as in something that you discover and will always remain, but more about the truth that we make of ourselves by choosing to shape the world.

For example: It's true that life can end. But most religions will tell us, "Don't get so angry that you kill somebody." Common sense will also tell us that, but that's not the point. The point is to consider what is the truth of that situation? Death exists, anger exists, murder exists, and restraint exists. All of those can be true.

Our lives and actions are what approach truth, and that can be religiously informed action but not necessarily.
