Religion seems to be a philosophy and a social construct; a meme-plex that promulgates and prolongs itself by the structures, edicts and forms it mandates (or less often “recommends”).

There are quite a few different religions, both current and historic. The ones I’m interested in (for history and storytelling rather than enlightenment):
  • The “Abrahamic” religions (from the story of Abraham) share commonalities such as a belief in a single all-powerful “God”, as well as the concepts of heaven and hell.
  • Gnosticism
  • Hinduism – the religion of the “Indus Valley people” i.e. India
  • Buddhism
  • Jainism
