  • yes. i agree, it's very interesting and enlightening.
  • Sure. One must not simply 'assume' that everything they have been taught is 100% true; that shows willful ignorance, not confidence. I don't believe in any religion, but I do study them, from the ancient to the modern ones.
  • Noooooooooooo! But I understand that other people like fiction much more than I do
  • Yes I do, it gives you a lot of informations about human behavior and beside it gives you a general knowledge.
  • Yes, I find studying all true belief systems interesting and inspiring.....but I do not study dark religions......I can understand people better knowing their core belief, faith, cultural traditions, belief in spiritual writings, history, and/or mythology. All individual's have different attitudes, values or worldview's and most of that comes from their belief system(s). I also think that there are a lot of religions that have similar moral values and just have a different set of set of stories and way to practice through prayer, ritual, meditation, or music and art. The main reason I study different religions is because it is enlightening to me. But, my father shuns the fact that I enjoy to study other religions....which makes me somewhat sad.
  • yes I do. I like to see what other people think and what makes them tick. I dont always agree but it makes for a fun debate.
  • Yes I do. From ancient to modern. I'm deeply fascinated by the myriad ways in which humanity has sought to explain the unexplainable. I'm not an atheist, but I think even if I were I would still find this fascinating. Spirituality is, to me, like a framework of sorts. Religion is the "art" that fleshes out that framework. Sometimes this is good. Other times, not so good. ;) But always interesting.
  • I wouldnt say i like studying religions, I like to know about them but not too much in depth, cos in the end I will never know the truth about them.
  • Helps me to understand others. I enjoy the history and try to piece together some of the unknowns. Someones religion can tell you allot about a person.
  • Yes ... I am a Tao-Zen Buddhist who has dabbled in general theology of all the major religions and most of the other known religions ...
  • yes i like.i found that all religion want us to make a kind man.religion is a method of living.but i read differences in between them.really it is interested.but i hate religion sometimes too when i saw killings bcoz of name of religion.if religion help us to make a nice man than it is beautiful and if it gives us hate than i dont like religion.
  • Yes, I do and it IS interesting. I'm a Baptist, but I've studied Buddhism extensively. As a life philosophy, it's amazing. I have a respect for those who follow this path, although I have trouble considering it a true religion as there is no "god" in it. Instead, I look at it as a wonderfully incisive philosophy on life and living and try to incorporate some of the teachings into my own life. I've studied Wicca, primarily because I have a Wiccan in my family, but also because there are quite a few parallels in some of their ideas on "magic" and my "folk magic" interests. I've even attended some religious celebrations with a local coven and in return have invited them to join my Christmas and Easter celebrations. I've read extensively about several other religions. I find it fascinating to uncover the differences in many of the major religions and even more fascinating to discover the similarities. I've come to the conclusion that many great prophets have had glimpses of the truth.
  • no , i do have to be aware of all the different teachings..because TRUTH is of the upmost importance...the Bible has enough to hold my interest for my life time...Buddhism is fascinating , and "a way of life" not a religion...
  • Yes I do. It's like watching military folk invent new ways to kill each other. Only in Religion do they find new reasons to kill each other.
  • I do but only in a general way. I still have way too much to learn about my own religion, Catholic Christianity. With love in Christ.
  • 8-10-2017 You can not understand a religion you don't believe. It is nonsense by definition. So you can not study religions, you can only compare ceremonies.
  • But which one is the truth? We have the Bible worldwide and in it Jesus said this... (Matthew 28:19, 20) Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you. And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.
