Juliette Norwood's curator insight, January 13, 6:14 AM

This is a religion map of Europe. As shown by the map, the religions are clumped in large groups in one area. It is shown that the religions were most likely distributed through relocation diffusion, since the religions are clustered. From there, it spread.

Ryan Randomname's curator insight, January 16, 9:25 AM

Khanh Fleshman's Insight: This is relevant to Key Issue #1 because it gives a more detailed insight as to where religions are distributed on a country-by-country basis. This is more detailed than the first because that one was only by continent

 

Vinay Penmetsa: This article shows the majority religion in Europe and how Christianity is the primary religon in Europe, and Islam is the majority in Middle East and Africa.

 

Graham Shroyer's insight: This article is relevant to key issue 1 because it shows an in depth look on the distribution of religions around the world and you can see the countries that support each religion clearly.

 

Zahida Ashroff's Insight: This is relevent to Key Issue # 1 because these maps show the distributions of certain religions accross different land masses. Some of these maps show the distribution of Islam and Judaism acrross the U.S. as well as the distribution of Christainity in Europe, which relates to the distribution of major world religions in certain regions of the world.

 

Rishi Suresh: The distribution of religions in Europe  shows how most of it is dominated by Christianity, a universalizing religion. This relates to the distribution of universalizing versus ethnic religions.

Islam to become Ireland's second religion by 2043

Islam to become Ireland's second religion by 2043 | Religion | Scoop.it
ISLAM will become Ireland’s second religion within the next 30 years because of dramatic population growth and immigration.

Via Ramy Jabbar رامي
Sirila, Lulu, Robyn, Shaun's insight:

I chose this because it shows how migration affects religious landscapes in different areas. This article shows how immigration is increasing the amount of muslims in Ireland and how future births will increase this. It also displays how Ireland's main religion (Catholocism) is decreasing in percentage of the Irish practicing it. A large factor is Orthodox Christianity, coming from the Eastern Europeans migrating from former Soviet-controlled states. Also some Irish are becoming atheists, which is bringing down the Catholic majority just slightly. While immigration is a very important factor in Ireland's decrease in Catholic majority, the larger factor will be the birth of children from the immigrants who will follow their parent's religions.

Juliette Norwood's curator insight, January 6, 8:56 AM

This should be included because it explains that the religion was introduced to Ireland, then distributed over the area, and is now set to become the second religion.

What does religion look like through the eyes of a six year old?

The gods have woken up from their nap. It is early evening, and they are dressed for a special day.
Sirila, Lulu, Robyn, Shaun's insight:

I chose this because it shows how children  grow and develop different religions as they get older. In the beginning they seem more open to trying new religions but as they grow older they start to observe and pick one if they can decide on their own. Although, children who are influenced to a certain religion will usually stick with that religion. It dsiplays that children are also hesitent to try some new things, but can grow to learn new things and enjoy each religion that they experience.

Mark Wahlberg Says Religion Is The Most Important Thing In His Life
Huffington Post
Mark Wahlberg is well–known as an actor, producer and even rapper. However, none of these things are as important to him as his religion.
Sirila, Lulu, Robyn, Shaun's insight:

I scooped this because it shows how popular culture can assimilate around the world due to globalization. Because of the diffusion of television and mass media, famous artsist like Mark Wahlberg can have a large influence on people all around the world. It could motivate people to change thier religion, or value it more, like he does. This relates to key issue one because it influences the distribution of universalizing languages.

Hinduism and Caste System

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

Via Gavin Dhir
Sirila, Lulu, Robyn, Shaun's insight:

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.

Dominique Kwon's curator insight, January 6, 9:49 AM

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.

Review Video: Universalizing & Ethnic Religions


Via Mr. David Burton
Sirila, Lulu, Robyn, Shaun's insight:

I scooped this video on to my page because it does a great job of explaining the distinctive characteristics between Universalizing and Ethnic Religions. We are easily able to see how they explain that Universalizing religions actively seek out followers while in Ethnic religions they do not. A  universalizing religion  attempts to appeal to a broad range of people while for an ethnic religion it only appeals  to those people who share history and blood lines in a single area. It also compares and contrasts both group with solid examples that help depict the differences between the two. This video does an excellent job with correlating with Chapter 6 Key Issue 1 focuses on Ethnic and Universalizing Religions. In the chapter it talks about multiple types of example religions that are Universalizing or Ethnic and in the video it also shows key facts and pictures including some of the same. Its a great video to watch if one if ever confused about the differences or similarities between the two.

Sirila, Lulu, Robyn, Shaun's insight:

Social media and globalization can have its benefits like popularizing religions and diversifying cultures. The internet can spread knoweledge and inform ousiders of religions, but it can also result in the creation and establishment of stereotypes. Many beliefs and morals are misconstrued in the eyes of outsiders and people often jump to conclusions and judge others harshly. This is related to key issue one because it talks about the distibution and outlook on religion in the United States.

Dynamic infographic on world religions (don't be intimidated by the page being in Russian... The graphic is not).


Via Seth Dixon
Sirila, Lulu, Robyn, Shaun's insight:

The article is very relevant towards this key issue as it easily explains how religions are interconnected and even though may potray different beliefs and views they still are able to have some of the same traditions or characteristics as other religions. It shows not only how each religion has to work with others inorder to try and perserve it. We also see how each come from different strands or roots yet in the end they all or some end up together. This relates to the book as we learn about the different religions in depth yet we also are able to see how they all are broken down into more simpler categories like: universalizing or ethnic.

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.

Marcelle Searles's curator insight, January 25, 1:42 AM

fascinating infographic on world religions.

Sid McIntyre-DeLaMelena's curator insight, May 29, 9:06 AM

The immense tree of world religions is presented as a graphic to tell connections of world religions and how far they've broken and changed.

The movement of ideas and people have helped caused these breaks in the religion by bringing ideas to new people, mixing with the present culture, and going further from the hearth of the religion.

Einstein’s Famous Quote About Science and Religion Didn’t Mean What You Were Taught

Einstein’s Famous Quote About Science and Religion Didn’t Mean What You Were Taught | Religion | Scoop.it

Albert Einstein was the most famous scientist of our time, and, because he was so smart, his opinions on non-scientific issues were often seen as incontrovertible. One of the most famous is a pronouncement much quoted by religious people and those claiming comity between science and faith. It comes from Einstein’s essay “Science and religion,” published in 1954: “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” This quote is often used to show both Einstein’s religiosity and his belief in the compatibility—indeed, the mutual interdependence—of science and religion.  But the quote is rarely used in context, and when you see the context you’ll find that the quote should give no solace to the faithful.

Sirila, Lulu, Robyn, Shaun's insight:

This article shows how science and religion are interconnected. Einstein's statement is basically saying that religion and science depend on eachother because religion uses science and science uses religion.

Posting Your Religion Online Could Cost You That Job

Posting Your Religion Online Could Cost You That Job | Religion | Scoop.it

 

Job candidates who share their religious affiliations on Facebook and Twitter could have a more difficult time finding work, new research suggests.

 

A study from Carnegie Mellon University revealed that while there are a number of personal questions employers are not legally allowed to ask during the interview, job candidates who post those details on social networks are opening themselves up to potential hiring discrimination.

 

"Our experiment focused on a novel tension: the tension between the law — which, in the United States, protects various types of information, making it risky for certain personal questions to be asked during interviews — and new information technologies, such as online social networks, which make that same information often available to strangers, including interviewers and employers," said Alessandro Acquisti, associate professor of information technology and public policy and one of the study's authors.

Religion around the world is diversifying. Religion is a large part of a person's morals and how they act. People have to be more and more carful about what they say because almost everything can be tracked due to the advancing 21st century technology tools. It is important to not exclude and discriminate anyone, but even if something slightly offensive is posted online, it can be traced back to the source, and people can loose thier jobs. This is related to key issue one because it talks about the  universalizing religions and how they can effect countries like the US.
