What is Religion?

.

To help answer this I use the a 1949 Chamber’s Twentieth Century Dictionary. It states that there are two kinds of religions.

There is a Revealed Religion, revealed through divine inspiration or inspiration from scripture.

Then there is a Natural Religion, which is derived by man from nature and not from revelation.

If one then looks up nature in the same Chamber’s dictionary it is defined as: The power which creates and which regulates the material world.

This is Scientology. Scientology is a study of laws and maxims that underlie nature, and man as a spirit. Scientology is a natural religion in this definition.

From the study of Scientology, one can be cause over the physical universe around him instead of effect.

I think the above is useful. Buddhism, and Hindu faiths would fall within this same definition of natural religion. And Judaism, Christianity and Islam would be revealed religions.
