Ramsingh Sachan. your question is very relevant.. Religion is very scientific.. since the base of Science is Reason.. The only difference between Science and Relgion is Reason of Logic and the Reason of Faith.. Science is a part of Social science and Religion is also a part of Social Science.. Social Science is a very wide subject it includes governance, society, enviornment, economy, development (science) etc... If Science provides Growth of Material.. so the Religion provides Elightment so that the Development can benifit the society with MORALITY.. THESE TWO SUBJECT ARE PARALLEL TO EACH OTHER AND NEEDED WITHOUT INTERSECTING..

Hello Philospher Sachan Jee and Social Scholar Sharmila Jee , Sachan we keep getting doubts Coz you have no answers for all this ,Our background does not provide such answers , Sharmila Jee you are correct but they meet , Everything is a part of religion ,The social science ,the physical science .
Let's talk frankly. Almost never do non-Muslims study Islam until they have first exhausted the religions of their exposure. Only after they have grown dissatisfied with the religions familiar to them, meaning Judaism, Christianity and all the fashionable "-isms"Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism (and, as my young daughter once added, "tourism")do they consider Islam.

Perhaps other religions do not answer the big questions of life, such as "Who made us?" and "Why are we here?" Perhaps other religions do not reconcile the injustices of life with a fair and just Creator. Perhaps we find hypocrisy in the clergy, untenable tenets of faith in the canon, or corruption in the scripture. Whatever the rea ...more

I don't know what you want to Say , Religion is there always ,science is still developing , some scieitific theories also takes u turns ,some theories are just hypothesis and not yet proven , only established scientific fatcs are to be taken as Science ,Sicence is not eliminating God ,It is elimnating false models of God
Neither religion nor science escapes from soveriginty of God , so a religion to be true then whatever scientific things mentioned in the scriptures should match established sciences or else it is not true

The validity of an experiment especially in science can only be verified, accepted or disputed by scientific testings with reliable instruments and methods. Many of the religious objections to scientific truth as in the case of motion of earth and not of the sun without validation fell apart. Religious beliefs are only beliefs and not sufficiently established in a scientific manner and as such suffer from the incompetence of questioning the validity of scientific conclusions.

Both are human endeavours, growing and evolving..with a bit of proven credibility to some extent..both have contradicted their own theories in a way..so can always question each other..question always gives a chance to establish and prove the statement..and none of them is firm enough to ignore being questioned..

Which religion demands that ??
On the contrary, Its reverse rather..that often science puts questions to religion for so many prevalent customs , faiths and beliefs.

Religion is way beyond limitations of science..and domains of spiritualism start only beyond the boundaries of science.

How old is this medical science..may be just a few hundred years..whereas religion has existed since the beginning of civilisation.
