Question:

Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are often referred to as the three world monotheistic religions. Does that mean that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are all one in the same thing?

Answer:

Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are often referred to as the three world monotheistic religions because they all share a believe in one overarching divine entity (God). However, these three religions are quite distinct, even so far as not agreeing on how God interacts with people, the world, or the universe. For example, broadly speaking, Judaism views God as requiring a set of specific rituals that are key to this life (and the next); Christianity views God as requiring the acceptance of his son as the key to this life (and the next); and Islam views God as requiring a majority of good works versus bad works as the key to this life (and the next).

Question:

Slavery exists today, with estimates of between 21 - 45 million people held as slaves around the world, far more than during the slave trade of the 16th and 17th centuries. How is this possible?

Answer:

Most countries have laws against slavery, however, modern slavery, as in years past, generates huge profits -- estimates are in the range of $150 billion -- making slavery worth the risk of getting caught. Slave owners use various forms of terror tactics to silence slaves to the extent that even those who work in public spaces are afraid to speak out. Adding to the victims' dilemma is the corruption of local enforcement who are paid to look the other way or are themselves involved in the slave trade. Finally, it is believed that one in four slaves are children, who, clearly, lack the ability and means to save themselves from their awful predicament.

Question:

George Washington, the appointed General and Commander in Chief of the army of the United Colonies, arguably created the first navy of the fledgling United States. Why did Washington feel a navy could be help win the Revolutionary War against the biggest navy at the time, the British navy?

Answer:

Initially opposed to the use of sea power against the British, Washington foresaw a limited but useful role for limited naval engagements, i.e., interrupting supplies from the island of Britain. Once convinced of the position, he moved independently to extend the reach of the army into the sea to aid the Revolutionary War effort. The operational track record of Washington’s navy, as well as the subsequent Continental Navy, are a scattering of successes and failures, but the incorporation of privateering by Washington in his first set of naval related orders helped set the stage for the most effective use of American sea power during the Revolutionary War.
