The Big Religion Chart This "Big Religion Chart" is our attempt to summarize the major religions and belief systems of the world - Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and dozens more - into a quick-reference comparison chart. Oversimplication is unavoidable in charts like these, and it is not intended to be a substitute for advanced religious study and exploration, but simply a fast overview. It is our hope that this chart becomes a useful tool for you to compare basic religious beliefs and practices of the world's religions and belief systems. Over 40 religions and belief systems are currently listed. If a group does not appear, it doesn't mean it's not a religion or doesn't matter; the chart is not comprehensive and will continue to grow. See also our list of religions and definitions of religion. On a mobile device? For sources, please see linked articles. Article Info Share This Page

According to police reports, James pulled right into oncoming traffic, likely because he was texting and driving.

"I got out and could see that he was trapped in there on the drivers side of the vehicle and there was a lot of smoke inside which is consistent with the airbag deployment," he told WHO TV. What Sergeant Charleston found on James' lap was chilling: a cell phone with a half-written text.

14-year-old driver charged in crash that killed girl, 12, in Caledon, Ont. - Toronto A 14-year-old driver has been charged in the death of the 12-year-old girl he was carrying as a passenger in Caledon, Ont., after a crash early Tuesday morning. The girl was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was taken to hospital and subsequently charged with criminal negligence causing death, dangerous driving causing death and possession of stolen property worth more than $5,000. The crash happened just after 4 a.m. The car had been travelling northbound when it suddenly veered left, struck a hydro pole and smashed through a fence. The ranch is described on its website as "a not-for-profit, inter-denominational Christian Sports Camp and Retreat Facility."

11 Documentaries You Can Watch Right Now To Understand How ISIS Rose To Power Last month, the Islamic State jihadist group, formerly known as ISIS or ISIL, declared its sovereignty and promoted one of its leaders, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, to the helm.

Amid a fierce battle between Assad's security forces and Free Syrian Army insurgents, fire swept through the old Souk of Aleppo, a historic covered market and World Heritage site. Rebel fighters and activists have reported that the blaze was sparked by the use of incendiary mortar rounds by Assad's forces. The atrocities and war crimes currently ripping Syria apart are evident inside a field hospital in Aleppo, the country's largest city. Inside the hospital exhausted doctors indiscriminately treat civilians, members of the Free Syrian Army, and captured Syrian Army troops alike. Every day the men, women, and children, must risk their lives to stand in line and hope that they can buy a kilo of bread to survive another day.
