... and Section # of Muslims and Islam The religion of Islam, prevalently observed in the Middle East, but also throughout regions of Asia and Africa is the religion of the followers of Allah, or the Muslims. It is also a considerably misunderstood and misconceived religion. Put into succinct terms by Sedgwick (2006), 'Islam is one of the major world religions, and is the non-western religion of which westerners are most aware, largely as a result of conflict. It was once the religion of a sophisticated and powerful world empire, but is today the religion of some of the least dynamic parts of the world, often found in countries that have deliberately avoided integration into an increasingly globalized...

The religiously fervent still rejects the idea of man evolving from ape but over the past 150 opinions have certainly evolved and most religious persons today accept evolution to be true. Those who remain willfully ignorant believe there is a debate to be had regarding the age old question of ‘how we got here.’ They insist the Biblical version and not the scientific theory of evolution holds the true answer. The emotion-charged debate generally centers on which version will be taught in the public schools. Ultimately, even those in State of...

... American History and the Separation of Church and Unlike other countries or other times in history, the U.S. government cannot mandate or promote any religion. The Founding Fathers understood the importance of separating the powers of state from religious dogma all too well. They fought a revolution against the long-standing tradition of both a monarchy and church determining societal law. Therefore, no, the law of the land embodied in the words of the Constitution forbids religious belief dictating public policy. This simple, straightforward and unarguable founding principle of the U.S. was conceived by a British man, John Locke, the political philosopher whose writings heavily influenced the...

Lane, the of "Experience of God", an Irish theologist has put down his views on not only Christian theology but its reflection and impact upon other different theologies, and most importantly the way he has defined "Faith", is the extravaganza which actually revolves around three things in particular, "Faith", "God" and "Theology". He considers this aspect of modernist era to be one of the most crucial, which is often faced and ignored by not only Christian theology but also men and women of other religions and cultures. One of the two dimensions on which he emphasizes his focus onto, is an individual's faith and the response of a common man towards its implementation. He urges for such an attitude...

... Dante’s Divine Comedy is both one of the most respected and one of the most mocked works of literature in the past several hundred years. It is well respected for its structure and clever satire while being made fun of because of its religious content. I believe that its main problem is not that it is too religious or that it is too politically insensitive, but rather than a large part of the entertainment value of this work is that it makes fun of the people living at the time. Even though people can “get” the way in which it is clever they will still never enjoy it as much as someone in Dante’s time would have. So while it can be very hard to understand and is probably not as enjoyable as it would ...

The theists argue from one point of view while the atheists argue from a different one.
