It's very interesting to instead of seeing the world from a political and geological standpoint it shows a map from a religious standpoint. It's very interesting to see how all of the different religion are taken from all over the world and the diversity the united states of america is. this map brings up a lot of topics concerning much of the eastern world as well.

Its really interesting how a so many people can collaborate on one topic to bring not only the history of a ideal, but the true history of a long line of people that were a big part of the development of the west in the United States. We always learn about how this and that president did something to help the country expand but it would very interesting to see how we as a country grew from the influences of someone outside of our own society. And not only does this book offer maps but it also includes charts and timelines!

It is really cool to see how much of tho religions are in the United States. it is really nice to see that people are being supportive of them. It is interesting that there are large areas of religion and then some areas have very little.

Juliette Norwood's curator insight, January 6, 8:57 AM

This shows the different branches of religions that people adhere to. This scoop was chosen to be the first on the page as a reference of each religion that mainly exists on Earth.

Ryan Randomname's curator insight, January 16, 9:32 AM

Khanh Fleshman's insight: This relates to Key Issue #1 because it shows the origins of each religion. Also, it shows the various relationships between religions. 


Vinay Penmetsa: This shows how a lot of religions are interconnected, and even if people think two religions are completely different, they might have similar roots, just like languages.


Graham Shroyer's religion: This relates to key issue 1 because it shows where religions originated and how they are all connected, like judaism and christianity.


Zahida Ashroff's Insight: This is relevant to Key Issue # 1 because it identifies the origions and relationships of the major world religions of today. These religious branches clearly show the relationships between majorly and minorly practiced religions.

Rishi Suresh:  This shows how, similiar to languages, many religions come in families and have distinct connections between them.
