 Definition of Religion:
 Religion is norms,values, or a way of life to an individual or community. A
spiritual guide that governs the way a person lives from day to day by giving
that person hope, belief, and reason to exist in this world. Religion can be
whatever that person makes of it. Religion can be a persons assets, family, or
other individuals or possessions, it can be many things besides worship to a
"God" or "Deity". It can be whatever a person deems holy or sacred.

Defense:
"Religion is norms, values, or a way of life to an individual or community". This
can be defended by taking a look at they way most religious people live. Many
people live accordingly to there religions rules and regulations. This includes
Buddhists, Muslims, Mennonites, and Amish just to point out a few. Not only in
dress and in possessions but people who respect their religions live by their
religion's rules.

"A spiritual guide that governs the way a person lives from day to day by giving
that person hope, belief, and a reason to exist in this world." Religion can give
an individual codes to live. It can give a person hope, belief, and a reason to
exist by making the individual feel loved or cared about by their religion or their
religious deities. It can also give them hope and belief by feeling included within
a group of individuals that share their same views. By giving them a reason to
exist religions give an individual something to look forward to after death and
purpose for being on earth.

"Religion can be whatever a person makes of it. Religion can be a persons
assets, family, or other individuals and possessions, it can be many things
besides worship to a "God" or "Deity"." Religion can mean different things for
different people. It can be a rich mans money, poor mans shelter, a mad mans
weapons. Many people or cultures worships numerous "gods" for different
occasions. Some people worship the earth or animals while many other
individuals worship other "people" or "mortals". A persons religion can be what
they make it.

"It can be whatever a person deems holy or sacred." By determining what is holy
or sacred to the individual they can choose to make that their religion. Whether
it be a feeling of enlightenment or a persons bank account, the individual has the
right to make what they consider holy their religion. Not saying it is wrong or
right because it is all based on a matter of opinion and belief. Much like my
definition of religion.
