What is Religion?
It is a bunch of answers to the really big questions in life. The different answers shape the different religions of the world. You go to one religion or another, or even none, on a very basic level because of the answers they give. Not only does a religion give you answers, it gives you hope and something to believe in. All religions of the world also have rules to live your life by, so that you know what is right and wrong. There are 5 major questions that most religions try to answer correctly:
1. What is our place in this world?
2. How can we live the right way?
3. How do we pray?
4. What happens to us after we die?
5. What is the importance of deities?
No one religion has all the right answers to these questions, but rather all the religions of the world have some good answers to these questions. There are 5 major separations, which are most prominent in our world; they make up the 5 major religions of the world: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism. On this website I will study these religions and what they believe.
