Since ancient Greece, The human race has made a strict distinction between faith and science, in the early ages, after the birth of Christ, and even in the medieval centuries. Sciencewas seen as blasphemy, sorcery, and a potential danger on the human soul and body .Yet ,in the name of faith , hundreds of thousands were mercilessly butchered , the simple word of “crusaders “ is enough to convince you , dear reader ,about how man filthed the image and concept of God in his own imagination , demonstrated in the famous movie : ‘kingdom of heaven ‘ in the phrase : “ this is a new war...this time ,between two gods “ .In the renaissance era , we thought we’ve seen the light in science , and the darkness of religion finally got away , but , is that really true ? , the final judgement is yours .
Science served us well ,it did to us a great favour : reducing world hunger , advancing medicine to its limits, making the world a little town , what once was indeed considered as sorcery .However , let’s not be so naïf to think that we found our answer ,and the world is ours , in fact,it is a two edged knife , The nuclear bomb ,now , doesn’t threaten separated entities, like war in the old world .it promises doom to the whole planet , for the first time in our history , we’re capable of destroying all life forms in one big blow ,and here I ask , is it really wise to give such power to a creature who once burned his own significant half in the name of love ( Hindu ) ? . Of course not , and what is happening in the world right now , between the two sides of the world proves this truth .Science is good , but not good enough, the belief of only materiel existence is our greatest weakness nowadays , like the belief in an absolute concept of God was once ,and I can explain that by its results , there is no more love , faith , peace honesty ... . I know I sound like a hipster, and you’re ready to do something else, but hear me out , Science is like faith , too much of it is wrong ( not the discoveries , the philosophic principle of reason who is mixed with the usual meaning of the word science ) , and it will have the same effect as excessive faith with the catholic church experience. What we need is balance ,balance between the two concepts , because unlike the common thought , the complete one another .The excessive use of one of them , will lead , eventually , to extremism ,and ,of course a terrible but stupid self-destruction process. Faith is peace ,with your own spirit , it teaches you how to love others, without boundaries and profits just for the reason of their existence , that’s the kind of love , I was talking about.And science is peace with your body , needs ,and the world in general ,to love yourself ,and seek your own happiness ( unless you are a sadistic person of course ) .I believe ,that if , one day , we reached that level of optimum balance between the two concepts , we will be in a higher stage of existence ,and consciousness ,and only then , we will be , truly , immortal.
Ps : I used the concept of science and faith in this article , which means , I went beyond their definition , so don’t be confused if you find out that science refer to : reason , logic , pragmatism and other similar words .
The same thing for faith who could mean in this article : emotional thinking , religion,values ...
