The Distribution of Spread of Religions


The nature of Religion greatly effects the geographic distributions of its
adherents around the world. Park (2004) distinguishes between two
types of religions base on geographic distributions. Universal Religions
are those that are widely distributed, and whose goal is to convert
people. Ethnic Religions, are confined to particular countries or are
largely confined to china, and Shintoism is concentrated in Japan.

Religion, Culture, and Society


Culture, according to de Leon(2012), is a system of vital ideas that
contain, energize and direct virtually every aspects of social life and a
person's relationship with the world. UNESCO defines culture as "the
complex of distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual and emotional
features that characterize a society or social group.

Religion can serve not only as an identifying feature, but a binding


agent for units of society, from small units like family to larger one's
such as nation's. Certain aspects of culture such as the home,
relationships, marriage, birth and death often have religious significant

In every philosophy, one finds similar patterns or very analogous


forms, in which people found meaning and give substances to their
principles. The stories, belief structures, and most noteworthy figures in
myths are remarkably similar from culture to culture, such as mystical
icon of the Mayan and Egyptian pyramids.

Religion can also permeate others facets of society- even those not
generally associated with religions. It is evident in how celebrations,
holidays, architecture, languages, arts, music, and literature in the
Philippines, for example, are stepped in religious influences. Many of
the country's officially recognized holidays are in celebration of
religious events, such as the Christmas season, holy week, and Eid al-
Fite.
