Learning religions makes you less ignorant?

Greetings Smile

Alright so apparently, a friend of mine had to take a religion course last semester, and we were discussing about it today. A mutual friend also said learning different religions makes you less ignorant about it.

I personally don't find a connection between learning religion and being ignorant, but who knows? Maybe there is....

What are your views? Do you agree? Disagree?

P.S. Thank You for answering.

Of course there is a link
its good to know abt other religions
its increases the understanding between faiths
n build a better relationship with one another



thats not to say u practice otger religions still practice ur own
n wen sumone of another faith asks u a question abt ur faith u can give a more informed answer by looking at ur faith n theres

LOL, you sure it's not the other way around? When people learn about religions, their thought process might get influenced towards what best fits a particular religion(s). They tend to favor religion over the norms and customs of society, and get blinded by the religion probably.

Well ego operates everywhere , in religion, politics and in everything thing. We may not need religion but we do need philosophy at least to understand several things that science is ignorant about.

The operative word here is "learning". The more you learn about anything (including religion), the less ignorant you are. But we also need to make the distinction between "learning-equals-knowing" and "learning-equals-understanding"!

I completely agree, there is a very fine line between knowing and understanding. Its not enough to just know your stuff, you have to learn to apply it to concepts you already know.
