Although this was kind of hard to read it was interesting to see how different religions are related and where they stem from.

Unit 1 Geography: Its nature and perspectives

Although the article relating to this diagram is in Russian, the diagram is not, and I found it to be a very interesting visual to not only show world religions developing on a time scale, but also because it does a very good job of showing just how many little divisions of each religion they are, and how they are all intertwined. Zooming in on the diagram, you are able to see each divide, each new branch, and each date for hundreds of sets of information.

 

This illustrates the theme of identification of major world religions because it simply shows the mass amounts of tiny divisions that occur in the major world religions in a simple format. This is very helpful because this would be pages of writing if you tried to write it all out.

The Impact of Religion on Politics

For the first time in U.S. history, a Mormon is on a major-party presidential ticket. The Wall Street Journal examines the changing role of religion in Ameri...

 

Aren't religion and politics supposed to be the two things we are counseled not to discuss to avoid controversy?  This video hits on something that plays a role for both candidates in the 2012 presidential campaign in the United States: their faith and how voters perceive their faith.  This video discusses Mitt Romney, Barack Obama and some past presidents' religious beliefs.  I feel this video handles very controversial topics in a thoughtful and fair manner given that it treats various religious traditions and political ideologies in a non-partisan manner.  The geography of religion might play an significant role in the outcome of the 2012 election.

Rishi Suresh's curator insight, January 16, 2014 5:40 PM

Khanh Fleshman's insight: This relates to Key Issue #1 because it shows how religion is an unavoidable part of a country's culture, including in politics.

 

Vinay Penmetsa: This article explains how religion is related to politics, and how religion and politics interact which is related to this section

 

Graham Shroyer's insight: This relates to this section because religion is a big part of a country and it defines many things, even the government sometimes.

 

Zahida Ashroff's Insight: This relates to Key Issue #1 because it shows the relationship between religions and people's beliefs. People's beliefs are influenced by religion, as their religion forces them to draw some rules they would have otherwise disregarded.

 

Rishi Suresh: Religion is unavoidably a part of politics. Religion is involved in many things that may at first glance seem to be outside its area of influence.

“Excepcionalismo y aislacionismo de EEUU son una religión secular"

“Excepcionalismo y aislacionismo de EEUU son una religión secular" | Religion | Scoop.it

La idea de la excepcionalidad de los estadounidenses, alegada por el presidente Barack Obama, ha sido blanco de duras críticas tanto dentro como fuera de Estados Unidos.


El destacado académico, lingüista y activista estadounidense Noam Chomsky ha atribuido el excepcionalismo y aislacionismo de EE.UU. a una religión secular.

"El excepcionalismo y el aislacionismo estadounidense se entienden generalmente como variantes tácticas de una religión secular, que es suficientemente extraordinaria, que va más allá de la ortodoxia religiosa normal, por lo que apenas se percibe", ha manifestado Chomskey a través del portal truth-out.org.


El académico ha recordado como ejemplo de la sofisticación de la doctrina estadounidense la invasión de Washington a Irak en 2003, la que ha calificado de "más criminal agresión del nuevo milenio".

Hace un mes, Obama hizo referencia en un discurso al excepcionalísimo de los norteamericanos para ratificar una posible intervención militar en Siria por el supuesto ataque químico de las fuerzas del presidente Bashar al-Asad.

Semanas después, durante su intervención en la 68ª sesión de la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas (AGNU) Obama señaló que esa forma de ser excepcional de los estadounidenses suponía un compromiso particular con los valores democráticos y una obligación de promocionar esos valores de manera global.

El pasado 3 de septiembre, el presidente bielorruso, Alexander Lukashenko, condenó las declaraciones de Obama, sobre Siria y comparó el excepcionalismo de Washington con el nazismo de Alemania.

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 5:36 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.

 

Graham Shroyer's insight: This relates to key issue 1 because it shows the prevalence of christianity, a universalizing religion, 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.

 

Rishi Suresh: This relates to the distribution of denominations within America. It shows how the distribution is related to the patterns left by the original settlers.

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

Juliette Norwood's curator insight, January 13, 2014 2:21 PM

This can be viewed in the perspective of a citizen of an LDC. In LDCs, there are religions that cause the woman to be subservient to men. A higher birth rate could be the cause. If these  small religions were to distribute and be adhered to, there could possibly be a spike in the birth rate.
