Pros and Cons of Religion and Modern Ethics

this is just one of the major factor of human evolution

The reason why humans have evolved and got civilised because we restrained our animal instincts like murdering , controlled our greed for food, for sex, every one controlled some  of his urges for benefit of whole society, so that we don’t spend time fighting each other and peace was established, rules were established to maintain peace.

Chimp and humans have humans just have 1% difference in there dna, but the difference is great, chimps can never be civilised because they spend their time fighting each other, a big chimp will always stay guard to all the females in his group, as if he has the only rights over them, he will not allow any other chimp to come near to his female chimps, he is the leader and he has to keep all girls, chimps wastes all day fighting for food and sex, while humans have rules, we don’t stay guard to our females as society have maintained restrain
A leader chimps position is never safe, he always dies a violent death, since benefits of being the leader are so high, all the other chimps want to be the leader, because that is the only hierarchy available, if they can be the leader, they can have best food, best tree and all the females for sex.

Humans can only thrive with cooperation with other humans, this is where religion came into play for establishing civilised society, religion strictly enforced marriage system, sex outside the marriage was considered a big sin, and punishment was death, people were told if u do sex without marriage god will punish you, they lied about it, god doesn’t care about your sex life, he is plenty of useful things to do, but that served the purpose of establishing peace, people were not fighting for sex.

Cooperation has its benefits, we cannot be farmer, doctor, butcher, cook, engineer, mechanic, everything at the same time, and we need each other to solve our problems. That’s why work was divided in the early times.

Before religion men were savagery, uncivilised they just picked up any females they want and had sex with them no rules, no control, no regulation. Fear of god was good enough to stop animal urges among men, and peace was established. Society thrived.

Religion has long served its purpose, now our society is more civilized we don’t rape women, just because she is not covering her face, but still large number follow old rules and impose it all upon us, that has disturbed peace, but believe me we are living in the most peaceful era, current violence is nothing if we compared that with our ancient world, it is not like ancient world, where person who has stick is always right.

I will like to give some pros and cons of religion
Pros of Religion
  • Use of fear to control human animal urges, but it has helped in establishing peace in the society and society could function
  • People think killing, robbing is sin and they don’t do it
  • If we see other man eating sandwich, we don’t just go and grab his sandwich, while if dog sees         another dog eating, he will try to snatch.
  • Gave some initial guidelines on how society should function
  • Religion inspires kindness , forgiveness
  • Motivates you to be giver
  • Religion helps reduce fear of death, since it teaches soul is immortal, animals don’t believe in god, so are very much afraid of life, religion teaches us that you will born again, that reduces fear of death a lot


 Cons of religion

  • Religion incites lot of violence, there are many blind followers when questioned will kill questioner.
  • Cannot question the authority, you are told to follow, you cannot argue the teachings, you have to accept all of it even if you doubt.
  • Most religious leaders are old n impotent and they hate women, that’s why so much restriction was on women.
  • Religion is very hard on women, some religions considers women to be inferior to man in terms of intelligence and her only purpose is to have children.
  • Restricts freedom of expression and free thinking, which is required in today’s world.
  • Rules they established are timeless and universally true, nothing is timeless and everything changes, and nothing can be universally applied, women,  education was considered to be sin, now it is not a sin.


Ask a man in Saudi Arabia what he did his entire life, he will say eat, sleep,shi.. and five times namaz, each prayer time is around half an hour, that means he spent his 2.30 hrs in prayers, that is whole day they pray and nothing else

Ask women in Saudi Arabia what she did her entire life; her entire life would usually be the same day.
Such restricted life is unimaginable, it restricts your freedom, your right for happiness, and you are forced to think only in a certain way, if you try to wander you will be punished harshly.

West is advance because there religion gives them lot of freedom, that’s why most of scientist are from west, and there is no scientist from Saudi Arabia.

Religion has long served its purpose, now we are more civilized than religion thought us to be, we even care for animal rights, while most religion states that some animals are born to be killed and to be eaten

Now modern ethics say that everyone has right to live, even insects and snakes, there purpose is not to serve humans, but there purpose is something different and not related to our benefits

we are evolving more to be humans

  1. well! from my point of view the basis of the article is wrong. religion is still strongest. Allah has made the machinery and so its' software too. do not follow the people to make assumptions of ideas and to make concepts of ethics, follow the quran and sunnah then you will understand how strong the concepts are.

    If you talk about the freedom of women, if you read quran and sunnah, you will get knowledge that a woman in islam, can be a trader, businesswoman, relative in anyway, and have freedom in all the ways.

    if you talk about security, quran and sunnah provides most secure and respected position in the world.

    the problem here is islam has not been implemented in its full currently not even in saudi arabia or pakistan, but you should read the era, history when islam was implemented in this world in its full capacity.

  2. Secondly the freedom modern ethics talk about is the freedom to do anything, in which a human is uncontrollable in its nature.

    and the consequences are dead society ...

    1. we are living in the best peace time, even the voilence of isis is nothing compared to the past voilence, where wars were frequent, religion seems to be causing more voilence than anything else, because leaders r trying to push the religion down the throat of person who is unwilling to accept

  3. Yeah, I agree, quraan has given the ladies so much of freedom do equate themselves with men. That's why there's so much of hate crime against take ladies in the Muslim world!

  5. The only reason im writting this ...cause its recent comments or i wouldnt waste a min cause its not worth it.

    Mr. Amin..
    Do not use a religion you dont know anything about and act you like you know something cause of 1 group of events.

    In islam that's a big sin to do so...thats why we are called "islam" means "salam" which is "peace"

    And "yes" we do have restrictions... but only from the things that dosent make civilized like you emplied...

    Which is "Use of fear to control human animal urges etc"
    Islam teaches us to control them as you will be rewarded by allah in life and after life ...thus makes us more peace , giver , kindness , forgiveness etc.

    Thats the true purpose of islam to make us a better human to be pride of what allah gave us and pride it back by following the message of god "allah".

    But please dont say things like we are restricted by just praying and nothing else thru the day... and dont say things like west only are scientist... that shows clearly your not edjucated cause algebra is part of your school days and yes he is a arab dude who invented it called khawarizmi which i belive you know but just want to market your site or bogus and politics.

    Sorry for my bad english.. "i am an un-edjucated man" and a sinner... but the whole thing is about to learn from your mistakes and not repeat it and most of all... never lie.

    Salam.

    1. It's not because of any religion that is making the arab world worse. It's because of the crazy people and the fundamentalists who uses
      Islam in the wrong way to dominate and achieve their political purpose. Politics is destroying the world not science or religion.
      Religion is also science because it just teaches us what is right and obey what is right. It just ask us to obey our conscience.
      Conscience of every religion is the same and also of the modern ethics( as long as it is not used in the wrong way by anyone) and thus the purpose as well.
      Only politics is making a religion or ethics bad by manipulation. This happens in
      any era of our history. Unfortunately, this is happening in the arab world frequently.

  6. I believe the best peace time is because of democracy and information sharing of modern era.
    These tools are powerful enough to control wrong politics to a very good extent.
    Many things cannot be done openly which could be wrong in the eyes of public and was common or frequent in ancient or medieval era.
    These are helping a lot to maintain peace in the modern era. But still that doesn't mean that politicians
    cannot manipulate anything as we could see anywhere in the world where peace is still a puzzle.

    1. politicans are from the society, if there r lot of wrong ppl they support the guy with their values, then democracy becomes mobocracy, where majority controls the minority, even if something is wrong, if supported by large number of ppl it becomes right

    2. Of course wrong politicians are produced by wrong people, thus, awareness and understanding of values to discover
      what is right all the time is important for a strong democracy because most of the wrong politics are because of
      ignorance and carelessness of true values(even by the common people) of the society.

      But this may not be true in every story like in many countries of the arab world(or any part of the world with similar story) because their fundamentalism,
      I believe, may not simply be because of support of public or may not be because of support of public at all.I think it's because of the violence through the
      power of weapon that is driving the wrong thing again and again. People are compelled to support the wrong thing. They are driving mobocracy through the power of weapon.

      And the other thing which may sound like a conspiracy theory but I think there is no other possible explanation to it.
      How are they getting money and weapons to drive such mayhem again and again? Definitely some other groups are supporting them for their own political purpose. There must be a strong
      interconnection between fundamentalists and other political groups supporting each other. But they are showing in front of the world
      that they are saving Islam(or their religion or ethics or whatever). But actually they are doing all these for power and profit.

    4. Don't know what is true. These are just my theories.
      Truth might be anything and beyond our imagination. No one knows what is exactly going wrong with this world. Hope all things go right soon.
