Does technology have a negative effect on religion?

  • Yes it is

    This is a very subjective question as it would honestly depend on the religion. However, by and large, most religions have core tenets that are easily adaptable to the digital age. Ever the Asatru (Old Nordic base) following is perfectly healthy and functional in this era. Anything that is not adaptable to every day circumstance, regardless of the setting for that day, is in need of a good overhaul, anyway

  • There is no inherently negative relationship, but technology can have a negative impact on faith based religions.

    Neuroscience, biology, physics, and related fields use technology every day to hypothesize, experiment, and understand the workings of our universe. May of these finding are in direct conflict with religious beliefs (virgin birth, creation stories, resurrection ect). Science and technology are still in their infancy compared to long standing religious ideas and there is already a evident pattern of people becoming non affiliated, to straight denying religious claims without supporting evidence. So I would argue that religion and technology are not necessarily enemies, but when you take a look at the impact technology has had on scientific thought, there is some tension there.

  • Technology doesn't hurt religion

    Religion and technology do not have a negative connection. Technology can help like minded religions get together and share ideas with one another. Religion and science are the ones that tend to have a contentious relationship. Technology only enhances what you believe, whether you are religious or possibly and atheist.

  • I believe technology does not have a negative effect on religion.

    I believe that technology does not have a negative effect on religion. They are really two separate entities. Instead, technology is very positive for religion. For example, religious shows can be broadcast all over the world through television. Sermons can be downloaded on Ipods, and people can subscribe and get them for free. Some churches offer live stream of their services.

  • No it doesn't

    No, I would have to disagree that technology has a negative effect on religion. I think that technology is a big help to religion, actually. It can help religion connect with people and help inform them of the religion and possibly grow their following. I don't think religion needs to be concerned with technology.

  • For the most part, no.

    This is a very subjective question as it would honestly depend on the religion. However, by and large, most religions have core tenets that are easily adaptable to the digital age. Ever the Asatru (Old Nordic base) following is perfectly healthy and functional in this era. Anything that is not adaptable to every day circumstance, regardless of the setting for that day, is in need of a good overhaul, anyway.

  • Technology doesnt have a negative effect on religion.

    Religion and technology are two different things. The Amish do not use modern technology. No electricity, computers, cars, telephones. Yet, it does not effect their religious beliefs. There are plenty of religions that live their lives without any technology and it is the way they do things. It doesnt not change who they are.
