England has acute problems with space to bury the dead, most formal burial grounds are full and rotate slots, smashing the bottom of old coffins and putting new ones on top. This situation, which appears odd to most modern eyes, forces us to reconsider what it means to talk about a "religion" and what is essentially "religious" about modern religions like Christianity and Islam. It could prove helpful to students if they were instructed to outline the chapter in terms of bold-faced sections and the corresponding subsections.

By contrast, in the late modern world the familiar become strange and threatening, while the strange become more familiar and often friendly. Flew wields a version of Ockham's razor, arguing that if one has no reason to go further, one has reason not to go further. (As it happens, Flew has subsequently claimed that there are good reasons for going beyond the natural world, and he is currently a theist; see Flew 2008.) His challenge has been met on various fronts, with some critics claiming that Flew's burden of proof argument is wedded to an outmoded foundationalism, that any burden of proof is shared equally by atheists and theists, or that the theist has an array of arguments to help shoulder a greater burden of proof.

Sin - Unlike other Christian denominations, Quakers believe that humans are inherently good. Thus, this position is also a universalizing stance vis-a-vis other religions. President Obama campaigned on a pledge to reverse these Bush-era policies. At the time of the Holy Prophet, and in some places even today, it was a common practice to prepare foods as offerings to various gods.
