    Thats introduces 3 types of definitions of religion, substantive, functional and polythetic. Then it goes on to talk about totems and amnism and Durkheims view of Totems. The elightenment period in 18th Century, of the emergence of scientific ways of thinking. Talks about buddhism having no god but still classes as a religion. Looks at types of religion like witchcraft and debate whether or not should be regarded as religion or science.

    God how can you hope sects would come up? lol

    when talking about globalisation as a negative thing on religion(ie assess relationship between globaln and religion) fundamentalism is a negative aspect of globalisation for religion isn't it but this is starting to not sound right as fundamn is a strong form of religion (v strong)

    am i thinking too much into this?

    I'm resitting this exam. fingers crossed for a science/religion question. by sounds of it, only person hoping for it.

    I don't have a clue what Sad3k is going on about though, never learnt that lol! We just did 'science is supposed to be... objective etc etc' but it is not cos of: falsification (popper), paradigm shifts (khun), heisenberg's uncertainty principle etc, so it's more of a belief system.

    glibalisation and religion you'd link it to all areas, itsa more about social change how we have advanced in modern technology and people are deviating from the tradtion norm of mainstream religionyet you can argue globalisation has a positive effect and then bring fundamentalism arguing that with enlightenment period of developing scientific thinking, we are able to think of new ideas towards religion, but with many ideas coming about and no possible truth we end up back into religion. Yet how do we define rleigion? Sects like Toemism and Amnism may be regarded as a religion to some but not to others.

    You could relate to your peers, ywho particpate more in religion, and then talk about how when asian people came had to build temples blacks came even though both christians were not accepted by church and therefore had to build new churches which now is the increasing religion in the UK, protestant churches, 1/6 people that attend church are in fact Black, comparing to how many black are in the country compared to white. Yet it can be argued there has been an increase in Catholic church attendance with the rise in Eastern European Migration.
    Then you can include 2nd generation muslims (madood), cultural hybridity mixing cultures together, bring in the Veil how it oppresses women although thats more gender u can tyr relate it to arab people. Theres so much you can talk about.

    Also include the statistics of those more likely to attend church under 15 because born into, pressure to attend church by parents and sunday schools, but 15-19 has seen voerall decline, why? due to advancements in thecnology, argue that the internet has provided us with ideas of new religions out there, as well as Athesism, argue back many recognise athesism as not a religion because your believing in a god, yet Buddhists who are religions have no gods. Can argue muslim women see education as a way of escaping cultrual norms and values. Yet this is affecting them when they return to source countries. You can argue about Ramj's research where men see it as if they fail to fulfill the role of the breadwinner then people regard this as harem.
    Argue for afro-carribean people rleigion is seen as a way fo coping with racism, and threats, or violence. Argue many teenagers in modernized cities in the UK have a high rate of Black Crime from youths, yet now there attending church their are moving away from the violence and back into their faith.

    isnt falsification and popper/kun under theory with sociology as a science not religion science and ideology?

    They overlap! That's why I want it to come up.

    You can say science is a belief system because of falsification etc.
    You can also criticise science in the 'sociology as a science' with the same thing. That's why I love it lol

    I didnt think it went too badly my main downfall was lack of feminist name on the 33 marker i sould only remember daly and i know wilson was a feminist in the other exam so when i was evaluating i just added names from other theories and i just hope they dont mind i only put in daly and wilson from feminist perpective!
    i presumed the 18 marker was on a bit of secularisation and a bit of participation and new age movement? well i added those in anyway and mainly talked about new age movements

    yeah i did a lot of evaluation but some people i talked to only did feminism and wrote about nothing else! they said it was because it said explain rather than assess but i thouht it said assess and for a 33 marker im sure you are supposed to evauate anyway, its an evaluation question!

    the 9 marker was was the best that could have come up!

    i found it really hard panicked as soon as i saw sects and cults i genuinely did hardly anything on these and still don't really know what they are.. why are sects likely to be short lived?! ergh so glad its over though i seemed to be one of few people who chose the science question.
