A comparison of Global beliefs or religions would begin with the

definition of a word that many who inhabit our planet would

claim describes the highest priority in their daily lives,

next to a place to live and food.

For some, faith or religion, is supreme, placed above all else

and one could or should be willing to die to defend it.

For others, faith is seen as more of a responsibility and a duty.

Religion or faith, can be a source of great comfort in

desperate times and give one hope when there is little else.

 

No matter the depth of it, belief or faith in a higher power,

is what sets us apart from the rest of the animal kingdom.

It is one of the characteristics that makes us Human.

To undertake such a vast amount of data collecting,

and fully describe and explain Global Religions is a

daunting task that could take a lifetime to accumulate.

These web pages have gathered a great deal

of this comparison data for consideration
