Meaning Behind the Concept of Religion

Nowadays most people are aware of the existence of religions in the world. However, when the question is asked for a definition, our minds wander among God, gods, angels, demons, temples, people with special dresses. Others think about Christianity, Islam, Buddhism as entities that embody the notion of religion.

Philosophy of Religion

Philosophy of ReligionThe philosophy of religion is a branch of philosophy dealing with questions of a religious nature: What is God? Does God exist? If so/not, what does this mean for us? It deals with the nature of religious experience, miracles, good and evil, morality, the relationship between science and religion, the afterlife and much more. It is by no means exclusive to the sense of God of the Abrahamic religions, and also deals with polytheistic, pantheistic, and atheistic views. In this sense the word "God" is more of a catch-all used to frame a particular set of beliefs about the world.What is God?The question “What is God?” must be answered in order for meaningful discussion to take place. Because there are so many different senses of the word "God" we must be clear about which conception we are dealing with. The Abrahamic religions believe in a single, supernatural God (monotheism). Hindus are somewhere between monotheism and polytheism, believing in many different deities which are all manifestations of a single God. Mahayana Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism are two polytheistic belief systems, while Theravada Buddhism is atheistic in nature. These are but a few of the belief systems addressing the nature of God, and this diversity accounts for much of the breadth of the philosophy of religion, and is why we must answer "What is God?" before other questions, even "Does God exist?"[read the rest]
