Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course for any individual living in the intellectual pursuit of understanding how many different and even opposing viewpoints on a shared idea can bring us together rather than separate us. This course is not just for people with sole religious interest, but in fact offers a genuine, humanistic perspective on how many cultures around the world came to be and why we must learn from the patterns of history to achieve a successful model of human interaction with religious ideologies.
This course showed me the interconnection of the human essence and how our evolution as a species has not slowed down our interest in learning about the unknown. In fact, the study of world religions may make one more accepting and tolerant of another's way of life. This is something our modern human civilization so desperately needs in bleak times of cultural fear, ignorance, and separation. I predominantly learned that our human ancestors who've forged the religious and spiritual ideologies many people of the world today follow come from the most true and eternal aspect to our existence. Whatever one may call this aspect, it transcends the individual mind and exists in meaning that dwells in a collective consciousness found within life itself. This lesson is more important to the human experience than anything else, because it creates the right foundation for us to perceive the rest of the world in an objective perspective; engaging us to live symbiotically with nature and one and another.
