I fully agree with you. I don't say those religions are 'bad', except for some
advocating killing of innocent. But in regard to letting go of attachments, we
have to go somewhere else.

What I believe is that we live in a dualistic world. Our minds attach
to forms in a dualistic way. If you can break your attachment to this
dualism and dissolve your Ego, you can get in touch with your True
Self. I believe you can do this through daily meditation accompanied
by a good belief system. Not just "any" belief system will get you
there, but "many" will. These religions you have mentioned I think
all teach attatchments of one sort or another. But many will teach you
to let go of these attatchemnts.
Please remember that I claim to be no expert in these matters. I only
relate from my experience and my limited base of knowledge. What has
worked for me may not be right for you.
I hope you find YOUR way, Al.
