timer Asked: Apr 10th, 2013

Question Description

I’m working on a question and need guidance to help me study.

Assume you are from another planet and have been sent to Earth to determine if it is a religious planet or 

not (something very important to your people). Your superiors are expecting a report back from you.

Write a 2-3 page paper in which you:

1. Discuss the criteria you will employ to determine if people on earth are religious — in other words, 

what does religion look like.

2. Describe three (3) examples of behaviors or beliefs you observe that meet the criteria you 

established above.

3. Based on your observations, explain what the function of religion appears to be on Earth.

4. Aside from a functional understanding of religion, determine how else your observations could be 

interpreted. Provide specific examples to support your response.

Your assignment must:

• Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all 

sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your 

professor for any additional instructions.

• Include a cover page containing the tile of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s 

name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in 

the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

• Analyze what is meant by “religion.”

• Recognize how daily life within various religions and current affairs are influenced by religion.

• Describe the varieties of religious experience and practice in a wide range of cultures.

• Develop written pieces that demonstrate an analysis of a topic relevant to the course.
