You listed 3 abramic religions (Christianity, Islam, Judaism) as seperate, distinct choices and then stuff "other" religions as either "asian" (huh?) or "other." Being politically correct is one thing, that's just silly.

Considering that this is world history, more... context-free... options could be seen as a good thing.

I hope to achieve the same level of knowledge that I have in the past so I can later use it to seem smart at parties =). I may even look into a double major with history.
