Religion is responsible for the progress of humankind when applied correctly and the source of strife when not. Students will explore the major world religions in a unifying framework that will make sense of them all. Then we examine the religions from the eyes of their adherents, offering that additional perspective and simultaneously reinforce our learnings and glean new understanding by a brief examination of Native American beliefs. World Religions covered (alphabetically listed): Baha'i Faith, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and to a lesser degree, Zoroastriansim. Native religions will be viewed by their common patterns across the Americas.
At the end of this class students will have an appreciation for many commonalities between all faiths and a greater appreciation that all come from the same divine source. Differences and disagreement are human inventions. This class will equip you with excellent tools to foster understanding.
