Project #74388 - RELIGIONS

This exam is worth 20 points. The first four questions are worth 3 points each; questions five and six are worth four points each, making the total 20 points. Your grade will be posted in the My Grades section of Blackboard.  ****************************************************

(1.)    All religious traditions have a "story" - whether you believe in that particular religion or not dictates whether the story is real or not for you.  Why do you think that myths persist in our modern society?  What function do they serve?    

 (2.)  Discuss the role of the shaman in the Native American and any other religious tradition.  

(3.)  Name three well-known Hindu deities.  Give me two pieces of information about each, and also tell me the specific role they play in the Hindu religion.  

(4.)  How/why did the caste system develop in India, and what are its religious roots?  Then explain this phrase:  "If you do your dharma, you get good karma."

(5.)  Give me two reasons why the Neolithic period allowed for the development of "religion".  Then, using any religion that you are familiar with (your own or something you have read about for this course),  select any three of the common features of primitive religions I presented in the notes, and tell me where they show up in the current religious practices of the religion you chose..  

(6.)  Show me how the three main teachings of the Buddha (Four Noble Truths, Middle Way, Eightfold Path) blend together fluidly in Buddhist practices.
