Worldviews in Conflict

Abstract

Traditional adherents of one of the Abrahamic religions—Christianity, Islam, and Judaism—maintain a God-centered conception of the universe. They receive and absorb information on how to live from their respective holy books and religious leaders. As a result, these believers know exactly who God is—a supernatural male. “He” created the Earth and all life on it, and “He” may intervene to answer prayers from the faithful who ask for specific events to happen. Furthermore, the theology that informs these folk states that each human has a soul that does not die with the body.
