It is  conceivable  for states to get together and have a  United Nations  but it is still  inconceivable  to have a  United Religions     Abraham Heschel “Losing My Religion”  by REM
There may be nothing as powerful and nothing as destructive as religion....
Asia (the Indian sub-continent, China, and Japan)is richly diverse in its religions and philosophies.       The picture to the left displays the Bamiyan Buddha, carved into a mountain in Afghanistan.  It was unfortunately destroyed by the Taliban in 2001 because it is pre-Islam and seen as idolatry. The Taliban were accused of selling these type of artifacts; they denied this accusation. infonews.co.nz news.bbc.co.uk "We are idol breakers not idol sellers," Religion:  Brotherhood of Man?
Why Should We Study Religion in a World History Class? Divide INB paper in half. Top Half:  Brainstorm with a peer about religion, religious conflicts, tolerance, extremists, rights, etc. Create a mission statement about why we, as world history students, should care about world religions.
Why Should We Study Religion in a World History Class? Global integration has accelerated recently with enormous consequences for people all over the world. It has resulted in changes in traditional behavior and has challenged the adaptability of individuals, families, organizations, institutions, and nations. Wealth has been created and redistributed as economic, political, and social systems have striven to adapt.  Governments have had to reassess their roles and responsibilities as the governing elites have worked to maintain their influence.  The historic trend has had dramatic effect on the civilizations characterized generally as either Christian and Islamic.

Monotheism  refers to a religion that contains the belief that there is only one god.   Polytheism  is the belief that there are many gods.  There are three main monotheistic religions existing in the world today and they share many of the same characteristics.   Judaism ,  Christianity , and  Islam   have many commonalities in their foundation, religious doctrine, belief structure, and spiritual principles.  In fact, the similarities far outweigh the differences, an interesting point when the numerous episodes of conflict are taken into account.  The following chart offers comparisons and contrasts between the three major monotheistic religions.   For the sake of clarification, the Christian religion is divided into  Roman Catholic ,  Protestant , and  Eastern Orthodox .

“ Sajda”  by Rahat Fateh Khan and others
Religion:  Brotherhood of Man? Women and Islam In the early days of  Islam , women enjoyed more freedom than many Muslim women today.  Women were protected by laws concerning such areas as inheritance, divorce, and property.  Also, women and men were considered religiously equal, according to one interpretation of the  Qu'ran , the Islamic holy book.  As Islam spread from Arabia into Northern Africa, Southern Europe, and farther east into the Indian subcontinent, it began taking on cultural aspects of those areas, through the normal process of diffusion.  Examples of this are the seclusion of women and the covering of a woman's face in public.  The role of Islamic women began to be relegated to the order of the household, while men handled all public affairs.   Many of these practices, remain in varying degrees throughout the modern Islamic world.  The most recent examples lies with the Taliban of Afghanistan, the Muslim ruling body which severely restricted the rights of women and imposed extremely harsh punishments if women violated any laws.  For example, a woman could be publicly executed if she went out into public without a burkha on.  As shown here, burkhas completely hide the identity of the woman.    Some Islamic women enjoy more freedom than others.  However, this depends on the wealth of the husband and does not apply to politics.  In the 20th century, many Islamic leaders attempted introducing western reforms which included the elevating of women's rights, but they were often met with strong opposition from the  fundamentalist  element of Islamic society.  Despite this, many women have broken societal stereotypes and have gained an education, forcing their way up through Islamic society on their own. 
Review
Judaism, Islam, and Christianity share a belief in   1. the central authority of the Pope    2. a prohibition of the consumption of port    3. reincarnation and the Four Noble Truths    4. monotheism and ethical conduct
“ When I go to the office, I put on my shirt and I take off my caste; when I come home, I take off my shirt and I put on my caste.” What is the main idea of this quotation?   1. the caste system continues to influence Indian society    2. the caste system has been reflected by most Indians    3. successful urban workers in India belong the same Caste    4. the Indian government officially supports the Caste system
According the teachings of Confucius, the key to the successful organization of society is that   1. the ruler should be chosen democratically    2. the evil in humans must be eliminated    3. ancestor worship should be discontinued    4. individuals should know and do what is expected of them

  • 16. Religion: Brotherhood of Man? Women and Islam In the early days of Islam , women enjoyed more freedom than many Muslim women today.  Women were protected by laws concerning such areas as inheritance, divorce, and property.  Also, women and men were considered religiously equal, according to one interpretation of the Qu'ran , the Islamic holy book.  As Islam spread from Arabia into Northern Africa, Southern Europe, and farther east into the Indian subcontinent, it began taking on cultural aspects of those areas, through the normal process of diffusion.  Examples of this are the seclusion of women and the covering of a woman's face in public.  The role of Islamic women began to be relegated to the order of the household, while men handled all public affairs.  Many of these practices, remain in varying degrees throughout the modern Islamic world.  The most recent examples lies with the Taliban of Afghanistan, the Muslim ruling body which severely restricted the rights of women and imposed extremely harsh punishments if women violated any laws.  For example, a woman could be publicly executed if she went out into public without a burkha on.  As shown here, burkhas completely hide the identity of the woman.   Some Islamic women enjoy more freedom than others.  However, this depends on the wealth of the husband and does not apply to politics.  In the 20th century, many Islamic leaders attempted introducing western reforms which included the elevating of women's rights, but they were often met with strong opposition from the fundamentalist element of Islamic society.  Despite this, many women have broken societal stereotypes and have gained an education, forcing their way up through Islamic society on their own.
