Basically I find the 9 markers really hard and I'm trying to practice some, was wondering if anyone can offer answers to these examples:

Identify and briefly explain three problems with defining what is meant by 'religion'
??? I know the 3 definitions of religion but that's not the answer right?

3 advantages of religious groups having a presence on the internet
I'm guessing the obvious one is that you can get loads of followers quickly

3 characteristics of New Age movements
I've got: focus on self-spirituality and going against tradition

3 reasons for women's greater participation in religion
Maybe the notion of women closer to god, socialisation into passivity?

3 problems with using church stats to measure religious belief
got believing without belonging and vice versa, need a third

3 ways globalisation has impacted religious belief and practice
All I know is Lyon's idea of religion as 'disembedded'

So the problem for me really is coming up with 3 ideas. I hope this thread is helpful to others and thanks for any replies.

Globalisation has caused the electronic church
Movements from Asia etx appearing in USA and created a religious market
Globalisation has impacted on fundamentalism and there is a debate with the clash of civilisations etc
