"Report on the Religious Life of Planet Earth"
Assume you are from another planet and have been sent to Earth to determine if it is a religious planet or not (something very important to your people). Your superiors are expecting a report back from you.
Write a 2â€“3 page (approximately 500â€“750 words) â€œreportâ€ that addresses the following:
â€¢Discuss the criteria you will employ to determine if people on earth are religious â€” in other words, what does religion look like?
â€¢Describe three (3) examples of behaviors or beliefs you observe that meet the criteria you established above.
â€¢Based on your observations, explain what the function of religion appears to be on Earth.
â€¢If you find that religion can be better discussed in terms of something other than its function, explain how else religion could be understood.
This format of the paper is to be as follows:
â€¢Typed, double-spaced, Times New Roman font (size 12), one-inch margins on all sides (APA format).
â€¢In-text citations and a References page following APA Style, even if the only source that you are using is the textbook. Any other sources must be documented using in-text citations and included on the References page.
â€¢In addition to the two to three (2â€“3) pages, a title page is to be included. The title page is to contain the title of the assignment, your name, the instructorâ€™s name, the course title, and the date.
Note: You will be graded on the quality of your responses, the logic/organization of the report, your language skills, and your writing skills.
