| ||Hello again!|
Okay, so I posted this on my facebook and I thought I'd share it with you.
Does culture influence religion or does religion influence culture?
To elaborate; does a person's environment influence their religious
beliefs or does a religion influence the environment? For example, the
south has had a reputation for being conservative. Does the grand
majority's religious belief's influence the culture or does the
conservative culture influence religious belief's?With all that in mind, what do you think?
Say, you get a person from the Netherlands and then someone from the
south. They are on opposite sides of the political spectrum. (The
person from the Netherlands being the liberal and the person from the
south being the conservative. again, i'm using stereotypes.) Would
their culture and history influence their religious beliefs or their
religious belief's influence their culture?
My friend commented saying :
" I think that most culture is born out of religion. Ceremonies and
holidays born out of religion now become part of everyday life. Even
though nowadays, people do not recognize religion, it is in their daily
lives. Like in India. Most of the dress, and mannerisms of the
Indian people were borne out of their Hindu religion. Such as the
saris, the bindi, and the religious ceremonies such as cremation and
bathing in the Ganges River.
Just an observation."
