Ignorant people are more religious. Research has shown a negative correlation between religiosity and education level. Intelligent people should educate themselves in science and ignore religion.

Knowledge about religion, like knowledge about astrology, means time wasted in learning. An educated person can better spend his time learning other sciences and arts.

Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) are faith-based, and do not lead to enlightenment -- but Eastern Religions like Hinduism, Buddhism are knowledge-based, and do lead to a more enlightened person.

Hinduism and Buddhism are not "believe this, or else _" religions, like the
Abrahamic religions.

What practical knowledge about the world does Hinduism contain? Does eastern religion have anything to compete with western science?

Religion and Science are different.
But religion should not contradict science.
Also, religion should teach morality, not immorality.

Without morality, science is dangerous.
Without reasoning (science) , religion descends into sentimentality.

Even Einstein condemned Abrahamic religions( which he called Sky God religions)
and praised the "moral religions" of the East.

Sam Harris also says much the same thing.

What do the major religions have to say about the creation of the world and humans? I know Christianity contradicts science. What does Hinduism have to say? Doesn't Hindu belief in the soul contradict science, as there is no scientific evidence.

I agree that morality is important. We have to judge the behaviour of followers of a religion, and not just written teachings. And recent research has shown that religious people are less moral and more homicidal. But most of this research was conducted in the west.

Carl Sagan says the Hindu view: Creation, Preservation, Destruction, ....repeat
conforms to the modern Scientific View of creation.

If adherents of Hinduism do not follow the precepts of the religion, it is not the fault of the religion.

But if the religion teaches immorality (jihad against Kafirs, in Islam) it is the fault of the religion.

I don't believe that Sagan is necessarily right. The universe began in a Big Bang approximately 14 billion years ago. It has not yet been determined how the universe will end. It is an open question, if the universe is cyclical.

The concept of gods, also contradicts science.

What about the treatment of untouchables in Hinduism? Is it moral?

What about Narabali, a form of human sacrifice using torture? Is it moral?

Untouchability and human sacrifice have been rejected by Hindus.
They do not have the force of law anywhere Hindus live.

The Bhagavad Gita is the primary text of Hinduism.
It does not teach human sacrifice or untouchability.

The last big bang occurred 14 billion years ago,according to you(how do you know it was the first big bang ?) Sagan agrees with Hinduism that there have been countless big bangs and big crunches, and there will continue to be countless more.

The scientific consensus is that the universe began with a Big Bang approximately 13.8 billion years ago. Although some scientists have proposed a cyclic universe, it is not generally accepted.

Ignorant people are more religious. Research has shown a negative correlation between religiosity and education level. Intelligent people should educate themselves in science and ignore religion.
Knowledge about religion, like knowledge about astrology, means time wasted in learning. An educated person can better spend his time learning other sciences and arts.

Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) are faith-based, and do not lead to enlightenment -- but Eastern Religions like Hinduism, Buddhism are knowledge-based, and do lead to a more enlightened person.
Hinduism and Buddhism are not "believe this, or else _" religions, like the
Abrahamic religions.
What practical knowledge about the world does Hinduism contain? Does eastern religion have anything to compete with western science?

Religion and Science are different.
But religion should not contradict science.
Also, religion should teach morality, not immorality.
Without morality, science is dangerous.
Without reasoning (science) , religion descends into sentimentality.
Even Einstein condemned Abrahamic religions( which he called Sky God religions)
and praised the "moral religions" of the East.
Sam Harris also says much the same thing.
What do the major religions have to say about the creation of the world and humans? I know Christianity contradicts science. What does Hinduism have to say? Doesn't Hindu belief in the soul contradict science, as there is no scientific evidence.
I agree that morality is important. We have to judge the behaviour of followers of a religion, and not just written teachings. And recent research has shown that religious people are less moral and more homicidal. But most of this research was conducted in the west.

Carl Sagan says the Hindu view: Creation, Preservation, Destruction, ....repeat
conforms to the modern Scientific View of creation.
I don't believe that Sagan is necessarily right. The universe began in a Big Bang approximately 14 billion years ago. It has not yet been determined how the universe will end. It is an open question, if the universe is cyclical.
The concept of gods, also contradicts science.

What about the treatment of untouchables in Hinduism? Is it moral?
What about Narabali, a form of human sacrifice using torture? Is it moral?

The last big bang occurred 14 billion years ago,according to you(how do you know it was the first big bang ?) Sagan agrees with Hinduism that there have been countless big bangs and big crunches, and there will continue to be countless more.
The scientific consensus is that the universe began with a Big Bang approximately 13.8 billion years ago. Although some scientists have proposed a cyclic universe, it is not generally accepted.
The scientists are ignorant and dishonest. Experiments indicate that the
universe is as big as our telescopes can show, and thus the universe is
infinite.

When scientists are corrupt, they cannot be taken seriously. In any case
scientific theories have to do with technology, nothing to do with human
relations and emotions.

Clearly you are ignorant of real religion
Science is different in its scope. Religion is different. Between the two, religion is more important

It is really ignorant to compare the two

Science is *just a method*. Never can come to a final conclusion about anything. Basing ones life entirely on science is impossible and also really ignorant
I am not sure if you can understand this or properly debate.

Real religion always employed scientific methodology and analysis.

Going by your previous statements you are the Pope for Ignorant people

Much of religious knowledge is intuitive, and not empirically tested, as such unscientific. Science is both a method and a body of knowledge. Scientific theories should be falsifiable, as such we can never be 100% sure of anything.

Aside from science other knowledge include business, law, and the arts. Each of which is more useful than religion.

Science has increased knowledge about the world, and helped develop technologies which give us happier and longer lives. Religion gives you a mostly faulty understanding of the world, based on outdated knowledge.

Again, you rely on uncalled personal insults, which reveal your true moral character, and reflect upon all Hindus. What is true ignorance is demonstrated by followers of religion, when they substitute fiction for fact. People who choose to spend their time studying religion, rather than something relevant like engineering or business, are most ignorant.

According to the Pew Research Centre, Hindus are among the religious groups having least years of formal education.

If you want to study philosophy, you can stuy Hinduism, but with the understanding that it is ancient knowledge, as such mostly outdated. There is a little bit of truth in every religion. But it is best too study recent philosophy.

The problem is you dont know the scope of religion or science. You think science can answer every question. It cannot. Scientific methodology (hereinafter referred to as science here for brevity) deals *only with what is observable*
Science cannot deal with what is not observable. Love, justice, morality, poetry, brotherhood even sweetness and many experiences cannot be observed. Many experiences are the result of subject object interactions. The subject plays a very important role here. Science cannot *observe* the subject. So it cannot comment on love, morality, justice, poetry, art etc etc
In fact the subjective realm is what brings meaning and purpose to everything. Objective world is important but is meaningless without the subject
Only true religion expounds on the subject. In fact scientific methodology is applied here i.e., evidence from the outside world is used to outline the limitations of the outside world. For example, everything in all our experiences is limited and is transitory. But the subject remains as the constant unchanging entity. The temporal realm exists only in the backdrop of the permanent realm
Religion expands on the subject of the subject and its great importance

I will stop here. I am not sure why I write to you at all. May be I should not because you already came to the firm conclusion that religious people are stupid and you are great
So you are not here to really discuss but to put people down and inflame us
You think you are a great writer and philosopher and you want to lecture down to us
See your post at the start
Yet you attack us as being inferior immoral people!

I think if you really want to discuss do so but dont defecate your uninformed insulting views here

I saw many times. You are a waste of time
Unless you apologise for your attitude, I dont see any purpose in replying to a know-it-all writer who wants to tell people what to think

There is significant overlap between religion and science. For example, both religion and science attempt to explain how the universe and man was created, but while religion offers a fictional explanation, science offers a factual explanation. I don't believe that science can answer every question, but that generally scientific knowledge is superior to religious knowledge.

True religion is about what cannot be *objectively observed*. Nevertheless it is true. Senses have limitations (prathyaksha), all know.
We cannot see our own face or eyes! Mind and intellect have limitations. Hence inferences are limited -paroksha. But experiences are an interaction between the subject and object. Can the subject can be observed? Not as an object! It is called aparoksha. It is 100 % valid and never any doubt. The only thing of certainty unlike any objective knowledge
Without the subject all experiences are null and void
The subject is the most important factor ignored by most people. Science ( method) ignores this as its method is applicable only to objects!
Now think. What is the meaning of the word I? When you say I, what do you mean? Your body, mind? No because your body, mind have been changing for ever and still there is constancy in I and without that there is no experience. Amidst the changes there is a constant I without which experiences are impossible
This there is a whole realm outside of objects that cannot be studied by the normal scientific method. Rishis knew objective methodology and applied knowledge and analytical methods to grasp the essence of aparoskha and the import of I which is called atma.
Ask yourself who am "I". You know you are. That knowledge is *not based on perception like eyes or inference*. It is self evident, 100 % true and totally independent. Where does that knowledge come from? Find out

There is no need for belief. Science is limited to observation and experimentation and replication. It is valid but has limitations

Psychology, which is a science, can comment on subjects of love, morality etc.
Nope. Psychology will deal with the mental and physical effects of love etc. Not love itself? For example, what is love?

What is it that makes us love others, animals and even the environment? Why do beings try to live for ever and perpetuate the species? What is the reason for self preservation? Why not just die and accept mortality? Why is there a need to defy death and why do humans always try for perfection? Why are they never content with anything they achieve or possess? Do you agree humans are relentlessly trying for perfection? Why?

Please stop preaching your ideas and issuing fatwas that we should accept what you say
Discussion yes. We are ready. Have always been
Dhanyavaad for your valuable insights, Satyavrat Jee !

Ignorant people are more religious. Research has shown a negative correlation between religiosity and education level. Intelligent people should educate themselves in science and ignore religion.
Knowledge about religion, like knowledge about astrology, means time wasted in learning. An educated person can better spend his time learning other sciences and arts.

Clearly you are ignorant of real religion
Science is different in its scope. Religion is different. Between the two, religion is more important
It is really ignorant to compare the two
Science is *just a method*. Never can come to a final conclusion about anything. Basing ones life entirely on science is impossible and also really ignorant
I am not sure if you can understand this or properly debate.
Real religion always employed scientific methodology and analysis.
Going by your previous statements you are the Pope for Ignorant people
Dhanyavaad for your post, Satyavrat Jee !
You are correct !
