Rawaa Alghazali May 20, 2010 Why Study Religion "He who knows only one religion knows none"(Müller). Studying religion helps us to be aware of the many diverse cultures in our interconnected world. Religion gives you the opportunity to explore some of the deepest and most significant ideas and values that have developed in human history. The benefit of the study of religion is that it opens us to the many questions that we have such as how the world came to be, what it means to be human and why were we created. Religion is amongst the greatest to help us answer these questions (Study Religion). “It helps unite us in communities that bring meaning to our lives, it offers us answers to our deepest questions, and it helps give us a sense of our place in the universe”(Molloy pg2).
