Belief of a higher power. This can range from on god to millions. Monotheism means believing in only one god while Polytheistic is the belief of more than one god. The three largest being Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism.

Examples of religions that believe in more than one god are Hinduism, Buddism, and Shinto. Many religions do things to please their gods, goddesses, by having sacrifices, festivals, gifts, fasting, etc.
Religion is NOT evil. The people who taint religion are known as extremists, these people believe that they are doing whats right but kill many in the process.

So please don't be ignorant and be respectful!

Guy 1; Those "coexist" stickers are really awesome!
Guy 2; Yeah I have one on my car, just because I go to church doesn't mean I hate people for who they are or what they believe if they are different. That is just wrong, man.

A set of beliefs to explain life's questions. Religion does not mean Christianity, as there are many different religions, and different ways of following each. Contrary to what some think, religion does not cause wars or fighting, as most religions say that fighting is bad. It is, instead, the inability of people to cope with contradicting beliefs.
Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Taoism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Shintoism are all religions- each has different ways of answering questions such as, "What happens to our spirit when we die?", "Why are we here?", etc.
