If by "theories" you mean explanations of how states of affairs change or formal abstractions work, then I don't think "religions qualify as theories".Would you say that religions qualify as theories? — Hallucinogen
They are about as "incompatible" as observational evidence and circumstantial evidence, respectively.Would you say theories among scientific theories or theories among historical theories are incompatible with each other?
Religions proselytize with fact-free myths and folk tales which do not explain any publicly accessible facts of the matter whereas, at best, "scientific and historical theories" are rigorously critical, abductive, attempts to do so.If your answers to these two questions aren't both "yes", what is the substantive difference between religion and theories (historical/scientific)?

Not at all. Atheism is only a critique and rejection of theism.Accepting this definition of a theory, would you say that (your best interpretation of) atheism qualifies as a theory? — Hallucinogen

I don't think that this is a question of doctrine. That religions are disjunct from each other is a fact. Even sects within religions are sometimes isolated from each other and their mother religion/church.Is there a name for the doctrine which claims that all religions are epistemically/veridically disjunct from each other? — Hallucinogen
How can one reconcile Christianity with Hinduism or Islam or even Judaism? — Alkis Piskas
I think you will find most religions have a common thread under/through them. — Benj96
There are several concepts that parallel across all religions. God is not one of them. Not all religions have a godhead. Taoism speaks in favour of flow of nature that is ultimately not reducible to human language/description. — Benj96
I think religions as well as science are all fundamentally reconcilable with one another for a simple reason - they all study/ponder reality — Benj96
In essence the reconcilability of the study of the universe as "self/conscious" (spirituality) — Benj96
