Religion vs Science

Science_vs__Religion_by_LaRockeraGalileo Galilei was a fearless and fearful rebel. He was a scientist alright, and scientists need to rebel and change the established tradition and authorities in order to explore knowledge. And so, intellectual humans came up with the term- science questions to argue against the religion beliefs.

Galileo’s discovery did not only fuel other scientists to attack reliance on authority but he also freed other minds to explore without being trapped by religion. That was the essence of Scientific Revolution.

The movie did not only talk about Galileo but also the fate of other scientists who were not allowed to explore and experiment. It is a movie that is not merely portraying the status of science during the 16th– 17th century AD but the never ending power struggle between science and religion. When cloning was discovered, the church was the first and only one who showed resistance against such great discovery.

The book was entitled “Dialogue” perhaps because during such times, Galileo, like the method of Socrates, argued and discussed with other enlightened men so as to achieve knowledge.

To sum up, two absurd things keep running in my head today: scientists continue to become evil creatures, and as what Adam and Eve learned: knowledge is evil. And if such things insist to exist, the revolution continues.

    There is no necessary conflict between science and religion if the nature of religion is properly understood.

    What is the meaning of human life, or of organic life altogether? …To answer this question at all implies a religion. Is there any sense then, you ask, in putting it?the man who regards his own life and that of his fellow creatures as meaningless is not merely unfortunate but almost disqualified for life.

    Respected Sir / Madam,
    this is nice information I have read. I want to know what kind of ostracism he faced during his lifetime. I listen another one thing, once John and Hess named scientists were burned when they were telling earth is not plane it is rounded, and it was dogma that time belief that Earth its not rounded it is plane. So, I want to know is this statement right or wrong and if it is right. and if it is right then which book should I refer or go through ? suggest me reference please.
    Waiting for reply.

    Thank you,
