Religion vs Science

Science_vs__Religion_by_LaRockera

Galileo Galilei was a fearless and fearful rebel. He was a scientist alright, and scientists need to rebel and change the established tradition and authorities in order to explore knowledge. And so, intellectual humans came up with the term- science questions to argue against the religious beliefs.

Galileo’s discovery did not only fuel other scientists to attack reliance on authority but he also freed other minds to explore without being trapped by religion. That was the essence of Scientific Revolution.

The movie did not only talk about Galileo but also the fate of other scientists who were not allowed to explore and experiment. It is a movie that is not merely portraying the status of science during the 16th– 17th century AD but the never-ending power struggle between science and religion. When cloning was discovered, the church was the first and only one who showed resistance against such great discovery.

 

Funny Galileo

 

The book was entitled “Dialogue” perhaps because during such times, Galileo, like the method of Socrates, argued and discussed with other enlightened men so as to achieve knowledge.

To sum up, two absurd things keep running in my head today: scientists continue to become evil creatures, and as what Adam and Eve learned: knowledge is evil. And if such things insist to exist, the revolution continues.

I’m a wannabe blogger who loves the 90s and Dr. Martens, an annoying mother and a jealous fan of A.M. Homes.

This blog is a reflection of my struggles to stay sober, creative and relevant for the past eight years. I deal with my very minor (perhaps imaginary) social anxieties through blogging about beauty products that I bought compulsively and conquering awkward feelings whenever I face the camera to awkwardly share my fashion outfits.

It’s orgasmic to finally let go of my thoughts and live different lives. Adios. May you find solace in other realms of the universe.

    Respected Sir / Madam,
    this is nice information I have read. I want to know what kind of ostracism he faced during his lifetime. I listen another one thing, once John and Hess named scientists were burned when they were telling earth is not plane it is rounded, and it was dogma that time belief that Earth its not rounded it is plane. So, I want to know is this statement right or wrong and if it is right. and if it is right then which book should I refer or go through ? suggest me reference please.
    Waiting for reply.

    Thank you,

    What is the meaning of human life, or of organic life altogether? …To answer this question at all implies a religion. Is there any sense then, you ask, in putting it?the man who regards his own life and that of his fellow creatures as meaningless is not merely unfortunate but almost disqualified for life.

    There is no necessary conflict between science and religion if the nature of religion is properly understood.
