The Big Religion Comparison Chart

The Big Religion Comparison Chart | Group Religion | Scoop.it
The Big Religion Comparison Chart is a comparison chart of religions that compares the origins, beliefs, practices, and texts of world religions, small religions, ancient cults and new religious movements.

 

While I might disagree with a few of the nuances of their doctrinal generalizations, this is a great way to compare global religions with a similar framework (and to be fair, summarizing a 'world view' in few than two paragraphs is inherently problematic). 


Via Seth Dixon
Dominique Kwon's insight:

This Chart is a convenient way for people to compare and contrast religions that are more common. This chart also tells the origin of the religion and the number of adherents. Which is talked about in much detail in Key Issue 1 of Chapter 6:Religions.

This article shows how Christianity, a universalizing religion, is found throughout the United States and is the most practiced religion in the United States. It also shows specific denominations that are practiced throughout the United States.

This shows how different religions have affected different states in the U.S. This affects certain areas in the states and their culture. 

Rishi Suresh's curator insight, January 16, 2014 12:36 PM

Khanh Fleshman's insight: This relates to Key Issue #1 because it shows the distribution of religions on a national scale. It also  highlights the dominance of Christianity and Protestantism in the US.

Vinay Penmetsa: This relates with the section, showing how Christianity is an universalizing religion, and its distribution in America.

 

Zahida Ashroff's Insight: This relates to Key Issue #1 because it shows the distribution and density of Protestants in the U.S. This map shows that the highest density of Protestants occur oin the South-Eastern region of the U.S.

Unit 3 culture
This diagram shows the percentage of adults by region to their corresponding religions. This demographic is part of America's major parts in its own branches. It shows highly developed religions like christianity and lower developed ones like Buddhism. This is an informative demographic.

This demographic relates to unit 3 because it shows how religions develop in different areas over time and pressures individual movements. It shows group organization throughout the u.s. and this is a cultural aspect of unit 3 that is very well touched upon. It is an overall demonstration of unit 3

Hinduism and Caste System

Hinduism and Caste System | Group Religion | Scoop.it
This article is about the caste system of Hinduism, its definition, history, advantages, disadvantages and critical analysis

Via Gavin Dhir
Dominique Kwon's insight:

This article is about the Hindu caste system. This article explains what a caste system is and the differences between each caste system.  This article explains how the caste system was enforced through hereditary, caste rules, marriage, preferential treatment, and royal support. The advantages and disadvantages are addressed in this article as well. This relates to religion because Hinduism is a religion and the caste system is a large part of its beliefs and practices.

Sirila, Lulu, Robyn, Shaun's curator insight, December 17, 2013 11:56 AM

I sccoped this article because in Key Issue 1 Hinduism is talked about as the largest number of followers and is explained in detail.  This article talks about Hinduism as a whole. It then goes into specifics with the defintion and the pro's and con's that comes with it. We also see how it is divided into a class system by the amount of money one has. Hinduism is an ethnic religion and is the worlds third largest religion behind Christianity and Islam.  It also talks about the different gods that many people worship and the importance of each one. It also explains how the caste system was enforced. This all interconnects with the part on Hinduism in Key Issue 1.

Jack Hansen's curator insight, October 22, 2013 11:22 AM

Banning Christian Holidays, pictures, crosses, and prayers while allowing Mu'slim prayers 5 times daily, making all other children accomodate Islam, and even teaching outright lies about the history of Islam and its prophet, branding Christians as terrorists, is not enough for some people to see the reality of jihad and Islamization in America.

This article relates to the key issue because it describes how religions are distributed around the Middle East.  Christianity has not been prevalent in the Middle East since Islam has taken hold in it, even though it is where the religion started  -Jacob

The changing geography of Christianity

Editor's Note: Dr. James M. Lindsay is a Senior Vice President at the Council on Foreign Relations and co-author of America Unbound: The Bush Revolution in Foreign Policy. Visit his blog here and follow him on Twitter.  By James M.

 

This is a good statistical look into global distribution of Christianity.  The most interesting differences for 1910 to 2010 is the growth of Christianity in the developing world, and the decline of adherents (percentage-wise) in Europe and North America.  What accounts for these patterns? 


Via Seth Dixon
Dominique Kwon's insight:

This scoop shows how universalizing religions can be found globally across the world, not just in one location. It also shows how universalizing religions actively seek followers to join their religion, no matter where they are located in the world. It also shows how Christianity specifically has a very widespread distribution. - Lisa

This graph shows that Christianity was predominant in Europe and The Americas in 1910 only to have less developed regions of the world gain some percentage of the Christianity development in 2010.

Ashland and Kendall's curator insight, February 11, 2015 5:16 PM

Europe- Religion

We chose this article because it demontrates a good graph that shows Christianity throughout the world. This ties to Europe because it shows that in 1910, the 66% of the worlds Christians were located in Europe. But, in 2010, it shows a drastic drop that is now around 25% of the world's Christians are located in Europe.

Violet Knight's curator insight, March 16, 9:39 AM
I think it's rather important that Christianity is becoming more global. And not just the fact that people are converting to it, but that this religion is becoming more known, people are becoming more aware that this religion exists.
