The five major world religions - John Bellaimey

  • Опубликовано: 14 ноя 2013
  • View full lesson:
    It's perfectly human to grapple with questions, like 'Where do we come from?' and 'How do I live a life of meaning?' These existential questions are central to the five major world religions -- and that's not all that connects these faiths. John Bellaimey explains the intertwined histories and cultures of Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam.
    Lesson by John Bellaimey, animation by TED-Ed.

    "Religions are systems of believe that developed and evolved over time" False information because this is not the case of all religions, this is true only with religions that was invented by people, like Hinduism, but the true way of Allah "the creator" comes only from him not anyone else, hence it can't be developed nor evolved in anyway.

    Frankly I prefer to remain Neutral, as in I follow No Religions, mostly because I fell like it just gives people something else to fight about, just like Politics & Sports, don't get me wrong I still respect what others choose to believe, but I believe that All Religions are Obsolete by Modern Day Standards due to mainly have been a bunch of Fairy Tales & Fantasies that Primitive people came up with back during a time when we didn't have the Scientific Advancements we have to not only Disprove them, but to gain a better understanding of what Really has been going on around us since the dawn of time & what keeps going on around us Today, and that Religions are also Unnecessary unless you have no Faith, Trust or Belief in Yourself, because if you can't even count on Yourself, then what else Can you do.

    For everyone how is not Muslim.I don't tell you that, be muslim.But,I just hope you read the Quran and search about islam carefully, say: "O the true god guide me to the truth" I challenge you, you will be a muslim, and realize that the islam is right.Islam told as about the Christian and Jewish , they was true but the people changed it to distorted religion .Quran tell you about the science theorems that is descovering now. Can any ordinary people fabrication that?! There's one truth,one god. The life is short so be quickly and search about the truth carefully .Because you are human, I love you. So search please, the world is perfect and it is impossible to be without a great creater like Allah. How can the legends equal with truth?! Islam not just a religion it is a way for the whole life and it is coming from the word: peace (in arabic) it is not special for kind of human, not just for Arab, but for all humanity. please don't be blind to the truth if you know it one day. finally, I am afraid you die beforw you know, so start from now, all love for you whatever you are.

    I respect people with different relifgions, as long as they contribute and remain holy to their religion, I hope that we would not argue about which religion is more powerful. We are powerful and good at different things, and it can be passed down to generattions or shared to other people not your relatives. We are unique, good, relying and master at ourselves, and it depends on our lifestyle and beliefs. Buddhists (I apologize, I do not know the spelling.), Catholic, Islam, Orthodoxy, Lutheranism, any religion that exists, are to be respected and known not as crazy cukoo, but as a persons culture and livelihood. I hope this and other faithful messages can inpire you to love and respect one another, no matter what religion, culture, tradition, and livelihood. I am just a random comment passing by, and you can reply with your opinion of any kind. Just take a moment to realize the true purpose of religion.

    I must say that it's confusing as to how Muhammed in the video was called a man of great virtue (meaning someone who's behavior shows excellent morals) when Jesus wasn't mentioned as that. Also confused about why the story of the Jewish faith went from the actual telling to modern times. I'm not saying that's a bad thing but why wasn't that done for the other religions too? I smell something fishy.
