schism : Our world is divided by schism. We all will always have different faiths & views and its perfectly OK. The cure is university in diversity. Today our world is one whole thing-thanks to advent of internet with converging & digitalizing. We are in great times and future will be much too better. We need to give-up schism asap. Freedom & Joy - schism can not coexist.

The origins of the word leave me dumbfounded. I thought it would have originated from Hebrew not French and then Latin. Nevertheless, its an interesting word.Think

... a strange haunting place this lake! now and again a temple bell would sound echoed from the hills. The bridge lay shimmering in the mist, unmindful of schism. O my love! May the dust of my body mingle with your remains ... for to evade the torment of condemning thoughts my need is as great as yours.

The sound of the word schism reminds some people of the sound of a piece of paper being torn in two; which makes sense –– when a group has a big fight and the group is torn in two, that's a schism.

Although the Spanish club could have a schism over taco night versus tamale fest, schism often refers to splits in the church. You might have heard of the Great Schism of 1074, when the eastern Christian church, headquartered in Byzantium (now Istanbul), broke away from the western one headquartered in Rome.

SCHISM.- break, ruptura, split, rift, disruption, separation, división. It seems that the political parties are experiencing some kind of internal schism.
