Philosophy is known to be the investigation of different things based on facts and the way that life actually is. There are times when people may be able to create assumptions based on the facts that they have learned but they will not label things as real “facts” when they are unable to find proof of those facts.

Religion is usually the belief of a higher being that is in charge of monitoring the things that are happening to everyone. The higher being provides opportunities to people but people would still need to decide what they are going to do with those opportunities. There are times when these two do not mix because the “proof” related to religion can sometimes not be backed up by facts.

Some other differences between Shia and Sunni include the placement of their hands. Sunni Muslims fold their arms during the salat; however, Shia Muslims do not.

Taoism largely influences zen. On the other hand, Zen may be believed as a Chinese form of Buddhism, which has certain variables of Buddhism, but fewer instances of teachings and theoretical concepts. Buddhism is based upon the lessons of Buddha, who has been celebrated as a teacher for his people.

His ideologies transcended the purpose of human life to achieve a state of nirvana and dispose of the endless series of birth and rebirth. Zen stresses the empirical prajna, which is primarily recognized as a form of meditation so that a person may obtain enlightenment.

It focuses more on direct firsthand realization through meditation, along with practicing dharma. Buddhism does not dominate the faith in a single creator God; however, they worship a lot of noncreator gods and refer to them as Buddhas. However, Zen does not believe in only one single God.

The following are the differences between the Christian and Jewish Bible: a. The Christians regard the following books of the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi, Psalms, Proverbs, Job, Songs of Solomon, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, Esther, Daniel, Ezra, and Chronicles as the “Old Testament” while the Jews regard them as the ‘Tanakh”.


The Jewish bible regards the five books of Moses, also known as Pentateuch, as the most important section of their scripture. In addition, the Jewish’ Old Testament book is grouped into three, namely: Pentateuch, Nevi’im, and Ketuvim. b. Lastly, Christians incorporate the following additional books as part of the Bible: The gospel of Matthew, The gospel of Mark, The gospel of John, The gospel of Luke, Acts of the Apostles, Epistles, and the book of Revelation. On the other hand, the Jews don’t accept these books as part of the bible.

It may appear that all good gospel singers are African-American because gospel music has long been a part of African-American culture. More African-Americans listen to gospel music compared to other races in the United States, so young African-American children are exposed to this type of music and may be inspired to pursue gospel singing more than children of other races.

As is the case with other art forms, as the fan base becomes more broad and diverse so do the artists. As gospel music becomes more popular, it would be expected that the race of gospel singers will become more diverse.

Let's see how far my knowledge stretches

The Hajj is known to be the pilgrimage that male Muslims do when they want to visit Saudi Arabia, which is known to be the holiest city for all the Muslims. It seems that there are a lot of Muslims who still pay a lot of attention to gender differences. They believe that males are stronger than women.

This explains why they allow a lot of men to do religious duties more than men. They believe that only those who are considered to be the strongest should perform Hajj. They may believe that women are not strong enough to undertake this pilgrimage. A lot of people all over the world are saying that this is a sign of gender discrimination.

To provide an answer to this question, I turned to Got Questions Ministries, accessed April 17, 2018, [https://gotquestions.org/Jesus-siblings.html]. "Jesus’ brothers are mentioned in several Bible verses. Matthew 12:46, Luke 8:19, and Mark 3:31 say that Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see Him. The Bible tells us that Jesus had four brothers: James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas (Matthew 13:55). The Bible also tells us that Jesus had sisters, but they are not named or numbered (Matthew 13:56).

In John 7:1-10, His brothers go on to the festival while Jesus stays behind. In Acts 1:14, His brothers and mother are described as praying with the disciples. Galatians 1:19 mentions that James was Jesus’ brother. The most natural conclusion of these passages is to interpret that Jesus had actual blood half-siblings."

The separation of religion and state is the foundation of secularism. It ensures religious groups don't interfere in affairs of state, and the state doesn't interfere in religious affairs. By this definition, to my knowledge, there is no truly “secularistic” nation on Earth. Japan may come close as it is considered a secular democracy. Japan’s constitution, Article 20, Freedom of Religion, Secularity of State, sets out 4 points separating religion from the state.

Also, some countries may be moving toward secularism. Norway, for example, changed its constitution and declared that the Evangelical Lutheran religion would no longer be the state’s official religion.
