  1. I’m going to look into this. I think the section on Islam would be worth the effort.

    But I’m wondering…the American legal definition notwithstanding…does Buddhism qualify as a religion…with no deity?

    • Good question. I thought of signing up, as well. Let’s be study buddies!

      • I don’t know. That’s almost six months for the full package. I hesitate, these days, to plan anything that far in advance. Month-to-month is what I’m used to.
        It does appear one can sign up for just a section or two, which might be doable for me. The section on Islam is in June. Let me dwell upon it…

  2. You know who this would be good for? “Religious” people.

  3. This looks interesting. I signed up for the first course (free version) and will see how it goes before signing up for more.
