Clifford Geertz provides the following as a definition of religion: "A religion is a system of symbols which acts to establish powerful, pervasive, and long-lasting moods and motivations in men by formulating conceptions of a general order of existence and clothing these conceptions with such an aura of factuality that the moods and motivations seem uniquely realistic." Examine this quote closely while thinking about your religion or belief system. What do you think of Geertz's definition? Does it apply to your particular religion or belief system and perceptions? Why or why not?
