Passport Makeup-U.S. Victory in Iraq

December 9, 2011 by  
Filed under Passport/Intro. to Religion

Once again, this is a also a very biased article.  It is just one more article that bashes the other party.  I am a conservative person, but I lean towards the middle more than most.  I tend to agree with republicans more, but I get so sick of the strong conservatives that are so arrogant.  […]

Passport Makeup-Boy Taken From Mother

Obviously this article is a little biased.  I don’t agree that the boy should have been taken, but I feel like Ruben Navarrette Jr. couldn’t form a solid strong argument because it was so biased.  He claimed once that social service agencies have been doing heavy-handed abuse for 20 years, but he didn’t give any […]

Religion–Most Important Element

Filed under Passport/Intro. to Religion

All this talk about what the most important element of religion is making me think.  Since I didn’t do my presentation over the most important element, I think this is a very interesting argument.  I think I am convinced that myth is the most important element of religion today.  The stuff people believe today would […]

Intro. to Religion-What is Religion?

Filed under Passport/Intro. to Religion

The more and more we study about different religions, pilgrimages, and definitions of religions, the more unclear the definition of religion is to me.  It seems to me that there can be many different definitions.  We haven’t even studied all the world religions and almost every definition we have seen conflicts with some form of […]

Intro. to Religion-Pilgrimage

November 11, 2011 by  
Filed under Passport/Intro. to Religion

Just a few thoughts that have been rolling around in my head…  We say that each one of the religions we have studied has some form of a pilgrimage.  We see that each religion has value in these pilgrimages and that each one is different.  Some are very different than others.  So are the ones […]

Paper Prompt (Rhetorical Situation)

The most important aspect of religion could be a few different things such as:  ultimate reality, practices, beliefs, sacred places, history, etc.  The audience I would be talking about in my paper would be the people of all different religions.  I would analyze the different religions and their followers to point out an important aspect […]

Religion-Belief in Karma

November 4, 2011 by  
Filed under Passport/Intro. to Religion

In class we have been talking a lot about Hinduism and eastern religions and the belief in karma.  It is hard for me to see how this makes sense to them because I have grown up a totally different way.  The thing that confuses me the most is when they decide they want to end […]

Why I chose Liberal Arts

Filed under Passport/Intro. to Religion

All of my college options were liberal arts schools.  Liberal arts played a huge role in my college decision.  I did not want to go to a large non-liberal arts school.  I did not know what I wanted to major in, but I had a few options floating around in my head.  I researched liberal […]

The Covenant Walk

Filed under Passport/Intro. to Religion

In class we have talked about the Western religions and how they have come from Abraham.  We have talked a lot about how God promised the land to Abraham’s people.  This covenant came up in the church service I attended this past week.  The pastor talked about the different myths in the bible of covenant […]

Becoming A Hajji

Filed under Passport/Intro. to Religion, Uncategorized

Today during class we went on our own version of the Hajj, only ours was on Morningside campus instead of in Mecca.  We participated in all of the events that the actual Hajji would.  Our events were small examples of the actual Hajj events, but they were very helpful in learning the process.  While we […]
