Should we stick to religion even after we have science?

  • No, religion is outdated

    Many still belive in superior beings these days, this confuses me because if you put it into perspective: religion was created long ago to help explain man's surroundings, since we didn't had science and technology to help explain nature, however we now know that religion is certainly not true, if there was a superior being that created us, we would have to know him since birth, but religion is culture, not instinct, by the way if there was one single religion, why are there so many other religions?, shouldn't all humanity worship one single God?, please share your thouts

  • Science and faith go together.

    I as a Christian find no basis to see my faith, as found in the bible, as a contradiction to science. You may bring up the theory if eveolution, but that remains a theory. You may also go through the Bible complaining about Hebrew words and the poetic structure, such as "circle of the earth." But I believe that is a.) misunderstood and b.) not the issue- the issue is Jesus. Is he who he says he is? And if he is, then what does that mean for us?

    Science is inconsistent. We used to believe things that we now know were bollocks. God, however doesnt change. (Hebrews 13:8)

    "Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who delight in them."
    psalm 111:2

    Louis Pasteur observed that life must come from life. Even if you believe in evolution, as many christians do, evolution only explains what happens once you have life. Life has to begin somewhere. I believe that Life comes from God, the self-existing creator and sustainer of life. Of course, many questions arise from this, but that is a different argument.

    God encourages us to study what he has made. Let us not, however, become to consumed in creation that we forget the creator. We must remember that he became one of us and died and rose back to life to forgive us.

    "The more I study science, the more I believe in God."
    -Albert Einstein

    God Bless.

  • Yes we should.

    Yes because i am a muslim and i have read the holy scripture, the quran and the scientific miracles in there .. Things that people could NEVER have known in that time period are in there and those miracles have given me a reason to believe in something that the word has pretty much given up on.
    Like look at this:
    "Verily We created man from a product of wet earth; then placed him as a drop (of seed) in a safe lodging; then We fashioned the drop into a clot, then We fashioned the clot into a little lump, then We fashioned the little lump into bones, then clothed the bones with flesh, and then produced it another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of Creators!"
    It is 2016 now.. The ways of reproduction are new.. The koran was written in 650 AD.
    "It is He Who created night and day and the sun and moon, each one swimming in a sphere. (Qur'an, 21:33)

    The word "swim" in the above verse is expressed in Arabic by the word "sabaha" and is used to describe the movement of the Sun in space. The word means that the Sun does not move randomly through space but that it rotates around its axis and follows a course as it does so. The fact that the Sun is not fixed in position but rather follows a specific trajectory is also stated in another verse:

    And the sun runs to its resting place. That is the decree of the Almighty, the All-Knowing. (Qur'an, 36:38)"

  • Yes, we should

    First of all religion institutes moral law, and enforces that people abide by it, f not for religion, people would be thinking that Gay marriage is OK somehow much earlier than with it. Technically, moral law should be naturally instituted, but you cannot prove something top be immoral unless there is a central book recording these moral laws.

  • Religion's function needed to be redefined

    Religion may have uses as a moral compass. In the end, as with science, it has always been a means to an end. As with science, religion is created by men. Since the needs of men required different tools to accomplish, science may prove that technological achievements may be more useful than faith in a holy scripture of some sorts.

    I am emphasizing the status of both as tools. They may change as with the changing needs of their creators.

  • This question is ridiculous.

    Science and Religion have entirely different purposes. Religion provides comfort to people who require it, and a moral code to those who lack the self-control to form their own. Science provides understanding of the world around us, in addition to the advancement of technology.

    The two have completely different purposes. Both exist for a reason. However, here is the key difference; religion is not necessary, because humans naturally possess moral instincts, and what we lack society imposes upon us.

    Science, however, is necessary for the continued survival and development of the human race.

    Therefore, eventually, when humans no longer require the crutch of religion, they will discard it in favor of individual moral superiority.

    However, that time is not now, and we require both to function as a society.

  • We cannot play for much longer..

    Ever since the birth of science, humanity has been able to see and create technological and logical advancements we see to this day and defied what gods can or cannot do. With science, we have the ability to create and destroy life and see the world beyond our eyes can see and turning the impossible to the possible. I know religion can bring people faith and goodwill but as years go by,it gets more dangerous and unstable to the point where it is a tool for discrimination,fear, and exploitation which divides the human kind rather than progressing and unraveling many possibilities which can benefit us.
