Mmmmm - 59

The word religion

As every dictionary can show, comes from the Latin word religare, to bind or collect together

Thus whether people pursue a common idea with or without, a deity in it,

if they are bound together by the same and one belief in something, then that belief is a religion

Not our common understanding to be sure, however it is interesting to know the actual derivation of a word and how it can come to mean something very different
