HISTORY OF IDEAS – Religion



Religion was an ingenious solution to many of mankind’s earliest fears and needs. Religion is now implausible to many, but the needs remain. That is the …

    Religion will tell you hey that's not a spoon, it's a fork and when you ask why, it'll say well, because I said so. How am I supposed to believe? I'm an agnostic, not a believer or an atheist and I am not asking anyone to see things the way I do. You want to believe a freaking snake created you? You want to believe in Allah or Buddha? Go on ahead just don't force it on anyone.

    You know when we leave institutionlized religion and let the faith be a total personal thing, I am sure advertisement you took for extra little credit about "energy healing" can easily take its place and it will be more capable than science itself. Do you know why? Because regular guys don't like truth but simplicty anything they don't have a certain degree of interest and to this fact science is totally no exception. You can either open your eyes and see what secularism made of us and the world at least with WW1, WW2 and cold war or delude yourself with fairy tales about how scientist are going to build a better future for us.

    I don't understand why you never mentioned anything similar in religions or figures like Kierkegaard, when you clearly know them enough to make videos about them. I felt it is a little bit hypocratic you know while claiming that you laid your back to the truth of science, keeping it secret is not a virtuous act…
    And before 1400 years Carl Sagan was born Prophet Mohammed said this: "If the whole world any everthing on it was more valuable than a fly's wing in the Eyes of God, he would not let any heretic to drink a sip of water."

    I don't wanna label you with any religious statues but you are really keeping things underr the carpet by not telling anything how religion led the biggest and most usefull discoveries on earth like usage of 0 (zero), how was the earth round? Even genes were discovered by a priest called "Mendel". And you still are biased to see what is happening in the eyes, in the hands and in the minds of the believers.

    And Richard Dawkins found nothing, scientificly or academically new other than giving good old emotivism a new terminology under the name of "Mematic". His views are less than helpfull to evolutionary idea.

    I really understand why some people want to claim that "earth is flat", your reaction to them tells more than enough.

    What science proven is no external authoroty is an absolute true keeper of faith for individuals, well that was what Islam and Lutler told you, centuries ago. But if you try to imply that anyone who is called scientist is the true savior of knowledge in his or her area of expertise without letting any other way to reach knowledge, you are just like acting a catholic cruch without pope.

    Ok so because people began to consider that the bible speaks in metaphors and we shouldn't take the bible litteraly therefore this debunks all of religion and christianity. So the christian faith, God and the faith of Jesus should be dismissed souly on the basis of the falsehood of Genesis, an irrelevant part of christianity. This is unreasonable and ridiculing to be considering. I am furious that so many people leve the faith because of the creation story and not on for example the dismissal of Jesus' resurrection or any central and even relevant feautures of the bible and the christian faith! If ex-christians left the church because of these reasons then I would accept it. If they did not meet theological figures answering these questions like C.S.lewis defending arguments for God, Alvin Platingua …etc But really I don't blame these people in the end, I only blame christians today for believing that some as insignifant as the story of Genesis to be a determining factor to be a christian. For that the atheist community is proud because of this belief and you spit in the face of christianity. Christianity is centered aroud Jesus, having a personal relation with God and making your life better through slavation.

    I recomend this channel to change it's introduction video from so called "unbaised" channel to "we will present our views on these subjects" Because here they do not present unbaised view of religion, unbaised opinions. No it is really presenting "every opinion" to a certin extent. Of course I am being sarcastic because this channel do not present a subject and propose the many popular views on it, instead they only defend one view and even if they mention the other view(s) they still lean bias to their view. Please you can show your point of view but don't say that your channel isn't baised to a view

    It always makes me laugh to see how Athiest mock all religions as being similar and how they all have no proof yet they completely ignore how Christianity actually has testable miracles which science has tested and determined as supernatural in origin. Here are just 3 examples:
    – The image of our Lady of Guadalupe is a 400 year old color image of Mary which contains no know pigments on a cloth which should have disintegrated after a few decades.
    – The shroud of Turin is an image of Jesus made from his blood and an the intense light source from the resurrection of Jesus.
    – Eucharistic Miracles such as the one in Saint Anthony of Sokółka. In this miracle the miraculous host was analyzed in a laboratory under powerful microscopes and it was confirmed that the cardiac muscle and the structure of the bread where intertwined in a way impossible to reproduce by human means.

    These are all perpetual miracles which all people can see…except those who chose to stay mentally blind off course 🙂

    Christians stand alone in the religions of the world as having such verifiable miracles.

    I find the language employed by the video and many commentators to be rather vague. I believe it was either Mandana Mishra or Kumarila Bhatta who had argued against a Buddhist scholar using a semantic argument. Essentially the failure to display proper understanding of grammar and specifically the meaning of a word is indication of false knowledge which results in ignorance. I see much of that here. There is no clarity of what religion means and how it is contradictory to science. Religion lacks a clear definition and doesn't really explain much. Science is quite clear as to what it is. Let us take for example the concept of Dharma. It has numerous meanings such as righteousness, duty, ethics, morality, obligations, and mores to name a few. That has developed in a theistic context with some traditions upholding the existence of god while others reject the notion. Dharma is followed by most Indians whether they uphold the concept God or not. Dharma itself doesn't contradict science and most often doesn't even reside in the same domain or share the same focuses. I'm quite confident that the same goes with many cultures. People need to be more open and curious than rude and self-righteous.

    To be very honest I don't believe in religion.. I never felt like…But my father is a firm believer of islaam which soothes his heart… and just because I'm not accepting islaam he has this notion that he's committing wrong dead if he is not able to convince his son to join religion without his son's consent…[it's not just about islam i really don't believe in religion] since it just brings up discrimination within us…
