If you give me an option to choose either Science or Religion, I would blindly choose science on any day. However ironic that may sound, I would still pick Science over everything else.
In very simple terms, if you take every religious book and scripture ever written and burn them all with, no trace left, they won’t be written the same again as they are right now.
But if you do the same thing with science, and then start all over from Zero, Gravity will still exist and will still be 9.8 m/s2.
Religion is based on a myth said by someone, to someone, and then to someone else, and then written by someone, all of them living in different times. Religious books are more of a person’s point of view, rather than being something substantial we can rely upon.
Whereas Science, it is all true. It has its errors, its faults, rights and wrongs. It can be theorized, proved, explained and advanced from time to time.
Religion expects one to live life in the 21st century based on something that was written thousands of years ago, in a completely different world, under some particular circumstances, by someone who was going through something at that particular time and had a completely different opinion and context.
Religion shoves stuff down your throat. You can’t argue!
But with Science, you can argue as much as you want. And if you don’t believe something, you have all the right to get out there, study, and prove your theory.
Moreover, Science is based on facts, data, patterns and numbers.
Religion is based on some ever so elusive entity called God!
Take your pick. Choose Wisely!
And Please Don’t tell me that religion and science can go hand in hand. No! They cannot. And also, don’t tell me it is fine have a scientific bend and still believe because you are spiritual, not religious.
