A religion is an organized collection of beliefs, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to an order of existence. Many religions have narratives, symbols, and sacred histories that aim to explain the meaning of life and/or to explain the origin of life or the Universe. From their beliefs about the cosmos and human nature, people may derive morality, ethics, religious laws or a preferred lifestyle.

Many religions may have organized behaviors, clergy, a definition of what constitutes adherence or membership, holy places, and scriptures. The practice of a religion may include rituals, sermons, commemoration or veneration (of a deity, gods or goddesses), sacrifices, festivals, feasts, trance, initiations, funerary services, matrimonial services, meditation, prayer, music, art, dance, public service or other aspects of human culture. Religions may also contain mythology

From time immemorial, questions about death and the meaning of human existence have led people to look for answers beyond the material world. Spirituality and faith in God represent highly individual paths to inner peace.

When faith is institutionalized in a social context, thus becoming a religion, it attains another function as well: It creates a shared identity. It welds groups of people together and induces them to help one another. Shared moral values can also provide solutions in cases of dispute. In this way, religion helps maintain peace in society. But the same goes for other identity-forming elements, such as culture, family and ethnic affiliation. Social cohesion allows members of a community to cooperate, and it strengthens them socially and economically, as well as protecting them against threats posed by other communities.

Anchorage, Alaska is my hometown. The really huge earthquake, actually the largest accurately recorded with scientific instruments that messed up this region of the planet in 1964 is often referred to as the Good Friday earthquake.

Preventable deaths are on the rise in Australia because more people are refusing to vaccinate their kids.
Mariah and Mark Johnson* live with their three children in a small, isolated town in southeastern Australia called Gippsland. It's home to maybe 2,000 people at most. In August 2015, the couple's six-month-old son came down with what they thought was the flu. At first, no one was too worried. But after a week, things started going downhill fast. The boy was coughing uncontrollably, making what they describe as "whooping sounds." Then he started to turn blue.


At South Gippsland Hospital, Mariah and Mark learned their son didn't actually have the flu—it was whooping cough, a disease that can be deadly for children under six months old. "What happens is that an infant will cough so much, and so intensely, they can just abruptly asphyxiate. There's no 'progression'—it's an immediate and uncontrollable death," medical resident Georgia Thomas* said. "It's so important to protect children from this."

God works in mysterious ways, they will say. God gave us free will, they will say. Anything to justify their delusions and make sense of nonsensical ideas.

Religious fanaticism is a problem that touches people of all races the world over, yet amazingly the way people express their fanaticism almost completely aligns with a straightforward reading of their belief system.

Isn't that interesting?

The extremists who kill people for eating cow subscribe to a belief system in which cows are considered sacred. What are the odds!

Extremists who shoot up abortion clinics belong to a belief system that regards abortion as the murder of innocent children – coincidence?

If something other than religion or a belief system were informing this, we would see a statistically equivalent number of Christians murdering cow eaters and Hindus shooting up abortion clinics. But we don't.

Let us not be so wedded to moral relativism that we cannot see cause and effect before our eyes for what it often really is.

President Trump’s initial budget proposal would end aid for poor families to pay their heating bills, defund after-school programs at public schools, and make fewer grants available to college students. Community block grants that provide disaster relief, aid neighborhoods affected by foreclosure, and help rural communities access water, sewer systems, and safe housing would be eliminated. Mick Mulvaney, the director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, suggested recently that even small amounts of federal funding for programs like Meals on Wheels, which delivers food to house-bound seniors, may not be justified.

With billions of dollars worth of cuts to federal social services likely ahead, the wars of religion have begun. Bible verses about poverty have suddenly become popular on Twitter, with Republicans and Democrats each claiming to better know how Jesus would think about entitlement spending. While conservatives tend to bring religion into public-policy conversations more than liberals, the valence is often switched when it comes to the budget: Liberals eagerly quote the Sermon on the Mount in support of government spending, while conservatives bristle at the suggestion that good Christians would never want cuts.
