Relationship between Science and Religion

Relationship between Science and Religion

Religion has been guiding the society for thousands of years. People have been worshipping their “God and Goddesses with all devotion. People leave all their worries and anxieties and believe that God will solve all their problems and bless them.

Science taught human-beings to examine things scientifically. Science influenced people’s minds and ideas to a great extent.

There is close relationship between science and religion. Religion teaches us the principle of morality and science should always be guided by this principle of morality. Some people devote their lives to the study of this science and become great prophets. The scientific power becomes more and more effective and benevolent only when it is guided by religion and morality. Our atom bombs, hydrogen bombs are examples to show how the scientific power has been misused because of the lack of religion and morality.

Belief in God does not mean disbelief in science. One may believe in both and the time has come when the scientists have realized that religion begins where science ends. Sometimes the scientist is not able to fully comprehend the mystery of the universe and at that time he believes that there is some invisible power.

The scientific ideas should never persuade the people that there is no God and no religion because even the great scientists of the world have declared that there is some invisible power that governs the universe and they have said this in right earnest. We feel the presence of God and his invisible hand everywhere.

There is need for harmony between Science and Religion. Therefore it is now quite evident that science and religion should work together for the well-being of the humanity. The scientist with his belief in God and the principles of morality can achieve many things for the betterment of humanity.
