It's like one religion can't contain it

from Blu (Ft. Exile) – A Man Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The metaphor used for this is the blindfolded wise men an the elephant.

Elephant=God
Wise men=a different religion

Each individual man tries to touch the elephant, although they are unaware that it is an elephant. They all believe that the part of the elephant they are touching—the leg, trunk, tusk, ear, etc.—is what makes up the whole elephant, when in actuality they are only touching a small portion of it

In that way, how can one religion explain everything in the world? For how far we’ve come in terms knowledge there is even more unexplained, especially concerning the creation of the universe.
