1) Do you think that clothing tells us something important about the wearer or is it just a reflection of taste? What purpose does the hijab have in the Islamic faith? What is your opinion of this clothing after reading the chapter on Islam? 2) Discuss how the concepts in this course apply to real-world situations and increase your chances of deepened cultural understanding and career or life success. 1) What are the major similarities between Islam, Judaism, and Christianity? 2) There is often an assumption in the West that the Islamic religion is intolerant of other religions. Do you believe this to be wholly true? Why or why not? In what ways have the Muslims been treated with intolerance? 3) Describe the purpose of ecumenical services and interfaith initiatives. What importance, if any, does dialogue between the various faith traditions have? 4) Syncretism is defined in the textbook as a combination of normally differing beliefs. This can mean the combination of religious beliefs or the combination of religious and cultural beliefs. Give two examples of religions, denominations, or sects that are either syncretistic as a whole, or have some syncretistic practices. (One example might be Benedicaria—the use of folk traditions in healing by Italian Catholics.) Your task is to create an argument for both sides of a debate. You are to create “notecards” that you would use in your debate. You should have three “for” notecards and three “against” notecards. Each notecard should have one statement that supports one side of the argument along with three supports from a credible source. Click here for a template of the “notecard” format. (The format looks like an outline—but the concept is that you are creating notecards for a verbal debate. This means you need to write in complete sentences, but you do not need the introduction, conclusion, and transitions of a formal paper.) Debate Topic Options: 1. Is it possible to believe in both science and Christianity? 2. Is Buddhism truly compatible with science? Research tip: Use various combinations of the keys words religion, Christianity, Buddhism, science, theology, technology, and evolution within the Academic OneFile or Academic Search Complete databases in the Waldorf Online Library. At least two of your sources must come from the Waldorf Online Library. Include a title page and a separate reference page. The title of your debate should be the question you are answering. No abstract is needed.
