World Religions Day 12

*****Days 10-11 were spent working on posters and other elements for the presentations. *****


Students in the Judaism and Christianity groups gave excellent 10-15 minute presentations today. Each presentation was followed by audience (peers) questions which tended to ignite excellent discussions on more in depth elements of the religion.

Salvation or Oppression?

After both groups had presented many of the common stereotypical arguments between the two groups were brought up and students began to critique both some of the hype surrounding the religions and some of the principles of the religions themselves. Several students felt that these religions were developed to suppress the masses, or at least that in their current form they were more oppressive than helpful.
