Should We Have Faith in Religion?

Religion Until Now

Religion has been the defining factor for many civilizations throughout recorded history; however, relative to humans’ presence on this planet, religion has been around for a very small percentage of the time, especially with the emphasis and influence that it has in society today.

Among the fears of women and girls when Afghanistan fell to the Taliban on August 15, 2021, was what their future in schools or universities would look like. Yet, no one can tell what the future has in store for the

innocent Afghan citizens.

Revisiting 
Boko Haram

Since 2009, the conflict between Boko Haram and the Nigerian state has displaced 2 million people and impacted the lives of far more. Further, in June 2021, the United Nations reported that the death toll from all Boko Haram attacks that had occurred since the violence began was 350,000 people. What has become of this militant force today?

THE EDITORS' POINT OF VIEW

As Co-Editors of The Network, we have the great privilege of immersing you in the world of our winter issue. 

 

Each issue we create centers around a theme intended to open the minds and perspectives of our readers and to relate to current events. When we examined current events this time around — the lawsuits in California, Louisiana, Virginia, and other states protesting the banning of religious gatherings because of COVID-19, religious leaders warning that vaccines are morally compromised, the Supreme Court hearing the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, and the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan — we realized that all these issues are tied to religion. Hence, the question that underlies our content in this issue: Should we have faith in religion? Our images and articles address this question by touching on subjects that have many of us looking deep into our own systems of belief and examining our religious perspectives. As always, our hope here is to open the door of conversation and invite in lively debate and discussion.
