Philosophy Wire: What is religion? A not so obvious question!


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2015-05-31]: People tend to talk about religion and science as if they knew what they talk about. But what is religion? What is science? If science says something e.g. about ethics without (obviously) hard “evidence” about it’s validity, does it behave as religion? If religion is based on intuition – which is a source of inspiration in science as well – does it work like science? We seek evidence in religion and yet science has none for any of it’s axioms. We consider religion irrational and yet it is logic which dictates that every creation has a creator. Maybe we should leave tags out of this. And just… think! In ancient Greece religion was not separated from science [Feyerabend]. We must go back to the past in order to leap forward into the future!
