To me religion is a way of life. Religion from my perspective consists of all those values and beliefs that we hold, that guide us through life. From my perspective, religion is subjective. Science, from my point of view includes the developments, man’s progress that helps man’s life. But what I see around me makes me question my understanding.
Science exists primarily to facilitate the betterment of the quality of life, with which without saying goes quantity.
But let me tell you, the promises of science have not been kept. Those of efficiency and simplicity have bred nothing but pollution and chaos. Our self worth as human beings has been destroyed.
Science has stated that planet Earth and all its inhabitants- all of us are a meaningless- a cosmic accident.
Correct me if I’m wrong, stop me if I’m moving in the wrong direction and please stop me and correct me if I am asking wrong questions.
But hasn’t technology, the one that promised to connect us made us feel utterly alone? We cry out for meaning in this race for development. But believe me when I say thus, we do not cry.
Listen to the desperate cry of the modern soul, lonely and tormented, crippled by its own enlightenment.
And do tell me who this God science is? Who is that God who offers his people power but no moral framework to tell how to use that power?
What kind of God, father gives his son fire but does not warn him of its dangers?
This is my plea to you,
Kindly include a chapter in which your students learn to ask if the powers they have gained from studying you are good or bad.
And as of now, I feel like a child in Japan or Mexico standing on this ground while the Earth quakes, leaving me torn between Science and Religion.
