Faith has brought both chaos and order in human civilization. On one hand it has taught ethics to humankind and on the other hand it has brought the evil side of humankind .
Yes, some humans had used faith or religion for their vested interests. It wiped out many civilization in the past in some bloodied wars.
But is our faith really wrong?
We really need to know that faith in the form of religion is the invention or imagination of humankind itself. So to call it right or wrong, to prove it right or wrong completely depend on us.
We really need to understand the true meaning of religion which is peace and compassion and not blood or hate. Sooner we realise that, better it is for our own existence.
Some people have faith in one supreme being or even see God in each and every element of nature. For them there is hardly any chance of going wrong since they will conserve, protect and respect every element of nature that includes animals and humans as well.
Is Science against faith or religion?
Science always asks for proof. It questions every phenomenon and that is its inherent quality. It has rules, laws , and therefore has it’s limitations.
Faith on the other hand is the imagination of humankind or probably his inner voice and therefore has no limitations. But it has to become liberal to allow science to question. If there is God out there who governs the universe then let science embark on a journey to find him. Maybe He is a force of creation.
The main motive of faith is to make us really humans by teaching us ethics, calming us in bad times and giving us contentment in the end.
Since faith is imagination or belief of man , it creates goals for Science. For example when Edison decided to invent bulb or something that will create light , he must had faith about it. He used faith to set his goals and then used science to accomplish that. His faith made him keep going in spite of many failures. And who benefited in the end, entire humankind !
Similarly, Science or believers of science have faith that there is life out there in space. They have to believe, they need to keep that faith to set their goals.
Therefore, we can say that science is an instrument of faith and both are significant for each other and not against each other.
So if you come across a man of faith or science , give him respect and always show empathy towards the people with whom you don’t agree !
