Just the facts on the world's religions.

Religion—or at least religious inquiry—is something that virtually everyone has in common. In all corners of the world and in all eras of history, humans have wondered about the origins of the universe, the purpose of life, what it means to be human, and what happens after death. The goal of ReligionFacts is to provide objective and reliable information—“just the facts”—on the many answers that have been given to these questions. This very broad goal means that we cover a wide variety of religions, belief systems, and world views—the grounds for a group's inclusion are only that it offers an explanation of ultimate reality or the purpose of life and has (or had) a significant number of followers.
