Note: The Foundation of Religion
Religion can provide a connection for people based on common ethics, morals, and spiritual beliefs. The foundations of religious traditions allow for the answering of certain questions pertaining to how we came to be, why we are here, and what will come of us after death? The Global Village allows individuals to examine how religious foundations in different parts of the world play an integral part in various aspects of society. For this assessment, you will consider what you have explored in this Competency related to religious foundations and traditions, the sociological study of religions, and the role that the Global Village plays in our study of religion today.
