RE: [mukto-mona] Let us not criticize religions, criticize religion-peddling--faith in God is much more solidly grounded on rationality

Dear sirs, a long debate is going on. It is essentially between  faith in God and atheism. Both have their own arguements.But the arguments of atheism, in my view, are weak like Big Bang and evolution explain creation. They can not explain why Big bang or evolution happened..


On the other hand the argument for God id more solid .It rationally explains creation and gives us a purpose in life. If some body says my house has been accidentally or automatically come into existence, my mind does not accept that. However if another person says my house has been planned and made by some body it appeals me.

  Religion, by it's broad definition, is anything that holds a society together.  Anarchism,Atheism, Communism, Marxism etc. are religions by this definition.  By the narrow definition, however, it is a set of beliefs that need God as the final explanation of all the riddles.  These sets of beliefs were not supposed to change with time, though they did.  Science grows at the expense of religion.  My statement that many leading scientists couldn't question religious beliefs is to point at their limitations.  In no way it subscribes to the view that 'religion and science can coexist in this world'.  Nature, in the religious view, is not the creator of all the species; it requires the intervention of God(s) for creation, propagation, and destruction of anything according to them.  Recall the concepts of Purush and Prakriti, the latter is nature while the former is God.
