In this post you will be creative and design a “new” religion that builds upon some of the elements of Shinto while perhaps incorporating traditions from other religions and institutions. In your post consider some of the essential traits of Shinto-respect for nature, emphasis on cleanliness and purification, love of beauty, and use of ritual. Build upon those traits with other elements that you value. For this post, you can even draw upon nonreligious elements-for example, business and technology. Use your textbook and other resources to assist you with this week’s discussion post.
Initial post due Wednesday by 11:59 p.m. with a response to two of your classmates due Friday by 11:59 p.m.
