In real life it might not be so easy, but your goal with this project is to create your own religion…from scratch! In addition, you should have some understanding of elements that each religion or spiritual tradition (or philosophy depending upon your own interpretation of some religions we’ve studied recently… Native American Traditions, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism/Confucianism, Buddhism) have within them. Use your creative flow to literally make up your own elements to connect to your new religion.
Pick any film or TV show on Netflix and create your religion based on the characters/plot lines/scene/etc.
For Part 1 of this assignment, you will need to lay out the parameters of your new religion. You may choose to use Word or PowerPoint.
The core of your assignment (and what I will grade you on) needs to lay out the “official” and specific parameters for your created religion. To get at that information, you’ll need to account for the following large topical areas (these are the specific criterion you will be graded on and must have):
- Founder (dates if necessary)
- Follower Numbers and Geographic locations
- Sacred Texts
- House(s) of Worship
- Major Practices
- Life’s Purposes
In general, the more appropriate descriptive info you provide, the higher your grade will be. Just like the Part 2, please feel free to be humorous and use your creativity. I want you to enjoy the process of this assignment, of course, as much as an assignment can be viewed as “enjoyed.”
For Part 2 – “create” an issue of power that your religion is currently facing in modern times, and write no less than 400 words detailing this power struggle within the religion. Again, you have license to be creative! As long as it connects to your religion and shows how their beliefs or faith life might be dealing with this issue, you’re good to go!
address how your religion’s power issue is either elevating/decreasing or maintaining consistency in your religion as viewed on the global arena. Meaning, what does the rest of the world think about your religion? Are they a threat? Are they an asset?
Contract: “A contract is an agreement between two parties by which both are bounded in law and which can therefore be enforced in a court or other equivalent forum” ( Turner C 2006), The person who places the offer is known as offeror and the person who accept the offer is an offeree. We have two different trems to be known, they are offer and acceptance(accept). This are the two main elements in a contract. One way of classifying contracts is according to whether they are ‘bilateral’ or ‘unilateral’. Bilateral contract: In bilateral contract a promise by one party is exchanged for the promise of the other party (Duxbury R 1997). Where the both parties are bind to the contract. Unilateral contract: In unilateral contract one party promise to do something in return for the act of the other party, the act is defined by the party makes the promise (Duxbury R 1997). From the above definition we know that the case we are dealing (Nancy & Andy) may comes under unilateral contract. Nancy is the party who sets the contract, by makes the promise of offering £3000 for the safe return of the dog. Here safe return of the dog is the act set by Nancy. Offer: An offer is a legal commitment, a proposal which invites, indeed presupposes, eventual acceptance. (David Oughton & Martin Davis 1997). The person who sets the offer is known as offeror and the person who accepts to the offer is known as offeree. Offer may be addressed to one particular person, a group of people or the world at large, as in an offer of a reward (Duxbury R1997). In this case the advertisement made by Nancy can be considered as an offer and Nancy as an offeror and Nady is the offeree, the offer is an offer of reward which is addressed to the world at large. Acceptance: Acceptance may be defined as an unconditional assent, communicated by the offeree to the offeror, to all terms of the offer, made with the intention of accepting (Duxbury R 1997). Acceptance in unilateral contract: Acceptance of a unilateral offer need not be communicated, because performance is the same as acceptance (Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Co.(1893) 1 Q.B 256 Turner C 2006).>GET ANSWER
