Have you ever wondered why 85% of the global population identifies with some form of a religious tradition? Knowledge of religion helps us understand culture, politics, nationhood and our place in global citizenship. In this course, we will learn together why religion continues to inspire many while repelling others.
Understanding religion is a benefit to our shared world and to the advancement of society. Religious literacy involves our ability to participate in ongoing conversation about the private and public place of religious beliefs and practices. Faith stories or religious truths should not be shaped by daily news headlines.
Research shows that about 16% of the world population (1.1 billion people) have no religious affiliation. The unaffiliated forms the third-largest religious group worldwide, after Christians and Muslims. Interestingly, research has shown that decline does not mean people are rejecting religion. Religious commitment remains relatively stable even though the unaffiliated continues to reject organized faith.
Human beings are spiritual beings who seek ultimate meaning in life. Religion provides that meaning.
