Science and Religion

Science or religion? Which is better? I guess there’s nothing right or wrong with both of them.

Science is a way to know about our world objectively and religion is a way to know about our world subjectively.

When we use objective measures we can’t build a world of our own liking.We have a set rules to follow in which we have got to build our world.But for the best,it is the world of reality (hoping we don’t already live in a simulation).

As for religion,it is a subjective view of reality.If it were objective we would not have so many religions but only one.But for the best,in religion, we create whatever we would like our world to be like.Keeping up our faith in god and ritual to find the best way to live.

Sure living in science is the real way to survive but the hope and faith religion gives us also helps us live.There’s nothing wrong with them as long they don’t interfere with the workings of each other.Because in the end we have the right to choose which world we would like to be part of and if both then how much of both.

Place

There’s a big difference between ‘only representation’ and ‘valid representation’.We see a diversity of people from different country,race,caste,religion,color,gender,class and so on doing a variety jobs nowadays without any restriction and discrimination.But they are getting representation not recognition under the pretext that it is to promote diversity in job culture rather than help them show off their skills.This implicit form of discrimination is difficult to criticize because it is difficult to recognize.In early days we had more of an explicit form of discrimination which was easy for everyone to see and criticize.This hidden discrimination is a potential form of overt discrimination.We need to stop it while we can or we will be back to the square one.

Experience

Failure exists to remind you to not ease into success.You experience failure only when you are doing well.It wouldn’t feel like a failure if you were already a failure.Everyone of us is successful in our own way – economically,socially,spiritually,aesthetically,politically,religiously and so on.Failure doesn’t prove that you are a failure.It just proves you failed this time and there’re always new things to try out.Failure is the only way you will enrich your life to maximum potential.If you don’t go through the worst you won’t appreciate the best.Instead of criticizing failure – thank it – to not let you soar up high in the skies and only to forget what lies below it.

Friend

God is like an imaginary friend we all have to soothe us.Problems arise when people start killing real people for the sake of their imaginary friend which is only a factor of their imagination.So they are not killing for someone else but for their own sake and just blaming others.If that friend really exists and asks you to do this then it’s a friend not worth having.Might as well cooperate with those around you and put an end to cruelty.Human mind is not fit enough to handle the concept of god – which is not a bad concept in itself since it gives us a friend for life.
