How would you define religion? posted 06 Oct 2006, 23:10 by zap21, Commoner

[quote="Wikipedia":xq66jq5i]Religion is a system of social coherence based on a common group of beliefs or attitudes concerning an object, person, unseen being, or system of thought considered to be supernatural, sacred, divine or highest truth, and the moral codes, practices, values, institutions, and rituals associated with such belief or system of thought. It is sometimes used interchangeably with "faith" or "belief system", but is more socially defined than that of personal convictions.[/quote:xq66jq5i] Also, could a new religion be found in modern times and still be considered a respectable and legitimate one? How would you react if a religion was founded? Just thought I'd throw this out there because it's a big topic on other forums :D view post
