Religion - variety of different worldviews

religion header

The term religion comes from the Latin meaning conscientious consideration or care, originally meaning “the conscientious care in observing omens and regulations. Religion is therefore a collective term for a variety of different world views, the basis of which is the respective belief in certain transcendent supernatural, supernatural, supernatural powers and associated sacred objects, which cannot be proven in the sense of scientific theory, but only through individual intuitive experience.
Religious people believe in a power that is above them and to which they align themselves. They believe in God or something divine. God or the divine is very different from the human world. For religious people, religion offers a way to understand the world and orient themselves in life. People express their religious experience in worship and prayer, through meditation, singing, dancing and many other ceremonies. Many religions have established rules, commandments and religious behaviour that people should follow.
