What if everyone in your world was the same? In the book the Giver by Lois Lowry the community he’s created everyone is the same except for the reciever who holds all the memories of the world. I will be explaining why sameness is good, bad, and what sameness is to Jonas. Sameness is good because everyone is the same and nobody can be better than someone else. Nobody can see color or feel things in the commnity which means no one can see more or less than someone else and no one can be angry at at anyone.
He never claimed that one thing was right or wrong but raised the idea of reincarnation, putting his own twist to it. In “The Egg,” the afterlife was not truly the afterlife. Everyone was really the same person, with different lives and experiences, meaning that the afterlife was just another life over and over. This was a conundrum for me since I only considered heaven and
The elderly Margaret Thatcher goes by herself to buy milk in a small store. We can see that no one notices her, neither on the streets, neither in the store. In reality, this would have been impossible. Thatcher, as all former and recent Prime Ministers, “had extensive security and the arrangements for Thatcher in particular mean the idea of her being jostled by randoms.” (Wimpress)
Most of the creation stories begin with stillness. First there is nothing and then God creates it all, like The Rig Veda and The Hebrew Bible. A few of the stories start slightly different, such as the African Creation Tale and the Native American Creation Tale that begins with Earth already created, and the Popol Vuh and The Babylonian Creation that begins with nothing but water. Water is a main theme in many of the creation stories because ancient societies were all situated on or near water. Since they did not have elaborate irrigation or ways to have water travel vast distances, settling close to the water was the only option.
Japan is a isolationist society, this means that the Japanese keep to themselves and do not communicate with other countries or cultures. Only within the past century, after the fall of imperial japan, have the Japanese began to communicate with other countries and open themselves up to the rest of the world. Likewise, their culture is very diverse from that of the rest of the world and is lacking in any kind of Christian movement. Furthermore, due to this lack of communication Shinto is completely void of any type of Christ, and because of this lack of a Christ figure Shinto also has no set beliefs in reference to an attainable
Living in a predominately Caucasian neighborhood that were Christians and Catholics, in Lakewood, Colorado, I was exposed to many friends that are these religions. Therefore, they would ask me to go to church with them to watch performances that their church is putting on. I would go to these church events, even though I am Buddhist because I wanted to be exposed to other religions and see how they worship their god. Although I never thought about changing my religion, I do find it interesting how differently my religion is to everyone else’s. My parents never knew I went to other church events because they are strict about me just being in temples.

We believe that everyone is equal no matter where they come from or what status in the society they have.
So my answer to the teachers question was no religion. I remember seeing everyone with shocked faces after my answer. We we're all so young and to this day I don't know why so many of my classmates were judging me for that. I guess since their parents force a religion onto them, they expect everyone else to have a religion. I thought my parents pushing me to believe in their religion was enough pressure, but now, am I also being pushed by society to believe in religion?
