Science and religion have always had theories that are polar opposites. Many people are cashing in on this situation and diverting the trust and attention of the people for their personal advantage, Religion is something that we find sentimental and we closely attached to it. The more religious you are, the higher are the chances that you might get easily instigated to oppose science. Science if the new God of the enlightened ones and the ones that we have seen our religious books, scripts and doctrines are nothing more than fiction. However, this is not the truth. Without taking into consideration a lot of facts that matter, it wouldn’t be wise to drop down to a conclusion. So here are some of the facts that we have to analyse.
God is invisible, but science is visible:
God is invisible. Nobody has ever had a conscious encounter with God, and even if someone has ever had it, it is not easy to evidence that fact. But the elements of science are not just visible, but it has also given the platform to prove a lot of invisible theories. That is where science takes the lead. God is invisible, but so is love and many other feelings. So shall we come to a conclusion that they do not exist?
The creation of earth:
Both the enlightened ones and the pious ones give us the theory that there is some force that is absolutely phenomenal and it is that force that created the earth. While a few people are calling it God, the rest are calling it science and have named it the Big Bang theory. Great people right from Einstein to Stephen Hawking have their take on the Big Bang theory and have contributed a lot to the development of the theory. They say it was created out of force and that something cannot come out of nothing. Yes, that is what we are saying, ‘it was God who created it’ says the religious.
Science has the power to create something out of nothing, but not as organised like the way we see the world. Science can make chemical reactions happen but not in an organised as it would turn out when a chemist handles it. This is what forces us to believe that there is truth in what the religions believe.
Persecution in the name of religion:
Yes, it is true that there was persecution in the name of science. But it is not simply because religious people believed that science could disrupt the harmony of the religion. It was because of the fact that amateurish scientists had great chances of spreading blasphemy. Instead of helping people understand the facts of science, they started spreading the word that God never did and shall never exist. To put this out, yes there were killings in the name of religion and shall always be a black mark.
The ideal way to see the difference:
The ideal way to see this difference is that we have to believe the ideals of both science and religion. We will have to see religion through the eyes of science. Science is nothing but an earthly theory to prove the existence of God. If science said that man came from apes, why aren’t we seeing that evolution today? Even today science cannot explain this. You can call it an evolution that ceased to move further but that would be a blunt explain and still give brownie points to religion at the end of the day. That argument would take you nowhere.
