Religion is a word difficult to define. It refers to the beliefs concerning an object or person considered to be supernatural or divine, and the moral values and rituals associated with such belief.
Many people believe that a supreme being (God) exists but that he is essentially unknowable. This is known as agnosticism or Deism, Other people believe that there is no such thing as a God, a view known as atheism. Other people believe there is one God who has revealed information about himself to humanity, and this view is known as monotheism. Some of the most well known monotheistic religions are Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Many people believe that there are many divine beings or gods, a view called polytheism. Hinduism is the most well known polytheistic religion.
