Science and Religion

When we say that science is replacing the function that religion used to serve in giving explanation about the world we are far off the mark. The function of religious philosophy is not to be concerned with explanation of world as such but to relate Man to God and the Universe with a view to answer his need to go beyond sorrow and death.

All recognise that happiness and peace are laudable goals (not intellectual answers) and are within reach of man. Kingdom of heaven lies within is a unique revelation and purpose of religion or its philosophy. It is to be found in a subjective sense and not as an objective reality.

Therefore science can never replace religion or mans spiritual search.
