Article - Misuse of God, Religion, and Science

Causes of wars destruction diseases and suffering;
Misuse of God and religion;
Misuse of Science;
Knowledge and Education lacking Buddhi;

Ask this Question to ourselves:
What God and religion want?

Misinterpreting and misusing the message of God and Religion for the lust of personal gains, by becoming self-appointed agent of God and religion for enjoying leading people by dividing them in camps, inflaming chauvinism finally to lead humanity to war, destruction, holocaust, and sufferings … Dukh… exactly opposite to the teachings and purpose of God and religion.

Leadership quality and the urge to lead people is a double edged blade.
Pursuing Buddhi while increasing knowledge / education is the solution to bring Health, Peace, and Prosperity.

Example: In the past:

Sati or suttee Tradition of burning alive the widow at the funeral pyre of her husband

suttee

Sati (also called suttee) is the practice among some Hindu communities by which a recently widowed woman, either voluntarily or by use of force or coercion, commits suicide as a result of her husband's death. The best known form of sati is when a woman burns to death on her husband's funeral pyre.


Example: The present day:

Female genital mutilation (FGM)

suttee

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is the partial or total removal of external female genitalia for non-medical reasons. It's also known as female circumcision or cutting.

Religious, social or cultural reasons are sometimes given for FGM. However, FGM is child abuse. It's dangerous and in many countries now a criminal offence.

There are no medical reasons to carry out FGM. It doesn't enhance fertility and it doesn't make childbirth safer. It is used to control female sexuality and can cause severe and long-lasting damage to physical and emotional health.

World Religions and beliefs

Comment

Humanity appears (simplisticly) to be divided into tthree schools of thought,


  • the believers in Religion,
  • the believers in Science, and
  • the believers in both Religion and Science.

There are many people throughout the world who claim that the Religious believers only are the correct thinkers. On the other hand the believers only in Science and who dismiss Religion assert that they are the correct thinkers.

This polarisation of thought has over millenia lead to conflicts of one form or another in both camps ranging from dismissive actions and language to physical violence, persecution, imprisonment, exile, genecide and global conflict.

Many devout followers of Religion are dismissive of those that espouse science, pointing to a supreme being as the answer to all questions. Their God provides them with the moral code of ethics that dominates their thinking and their way of living.

Equally there are many that follow only science who denounce devout religious people and their belief in God as merely fanatics who would resist the 'march of progress' to the detriment of the World and Humanity.
These followers of 'Scientism' believe that the only kind of knowledge humanity can have is scientific.

Most religions espouse Peace

It is undeniable that [most] Religions espouse Peace, harmony, tolerance and understanding in their teachings. Our question is this, "Why then do Religious zealots go to war to prove that they and their 'God' are more peaceful, harmonious, tollerant, and understanding than other religions or people?"

Meanwhile, the followers of Science will point their fingers at the religious zealots and decry thir actions whilst relentlessly pushing Science as the only true way to Peace, harmony, tolerance, and understanding.
At the same time many 'Scientismists' take scientific knowledge and use it to help make products that ultimately prove harmful, to the World and Humanity, in the name of furtherance of Science.

So, what about those people who belive in Religion and Science. Where do they fit in with our model of thinkers?

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."

Albert Einstein

There have been over the years many that push the boundaries of human knowledge, learning, and thinking through Science, and the humanities, whilst following a moral code of ethics. Their moral code is that Science should be used for the promotion of Peace, harmony, tolerance, and understanding in line with their religions teachings and beliefs.

Einstein understood that scientific knowledge cannot be the only kind of knowledge, and that it must necessarily interact with religious/philosophical reasoning when he said, "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."

Another invaluable contributor to modern science ... Max Planck (the Nobel Prize winning physicist who founded quantum theory), said, "There can never be any real opposition between religion and science; for the one is the complement of the other."

Why the rush to destroy our world?

Our model of thinkers still does not explain why there is this fundamental flaw in human society caused by the divisions over God and Science. Why there appears to be a headlong rush to destroy our world either through religious intolerance or misuse of science.

Our belief is that many people are unable, unwilling, or opposed to truly 'understanding' knowledge, learning, and information that they receive. They are unable to know and understand what is 'Correct Information'.

In order to combat this problem of not truly 'Understanding' we urge all humanity to practice Buddhi. Pursuing Buddhi while increasing knowledge, learning, and education is the solution to bring Health, Peace, and Prosperity.
