Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Alija Izetbegovic

A singular confusion exists about the notions of 'culture' and 'civilization'.
Culture began with the 'prologue in heaven.' With its religion, art, ethics, and philosophy, it will always be dealing with man's relation to that heaven from whence he came. Everything within culture means a confirmation or a rejection, a doubt or a reminiscence of the heavenly origin of man. Culture is characterized by this enigma and goes on through all time with the steady striving to solve it.
On the other hand, civilization is a continuation of the zoological, one-dimensional life, the material exchange between man and nature. This aspect of life differs from other animals' lives, but only in its degree, level, and organization. Here, one does not find man embarrassed by evangelical, Hamletian, or Karamasovian problems. The anonymous member of society functions here only by adopting the goods nature and changing the world by his work according to his needs. — Alija Izetbegovic

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

Prejudices, mysticism, bigotry these things only distort religion, like they have actually done to the most religions of the world. — Abhijit Naskar

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By David Hume

Generally speaking, the errors in religion are dangerous; those in philosophy only ridiculous. — David Hume

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Jack Kornfield

Religion and philosophy have their value, but in the end all we can do is open to mystery and live a path with heart — Jack Kornfield

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Virchand Gandhi

In our country religion is not different from philosophy and religion & philosophy don't differ from science. — Virchand Gandhi

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Kohta Hirano

I need just be a bayonet, a bayonet named Diving Punishment. I wish I'd been born a storm. Or a menace. Or a single grenade. No heart, no tears, just as a terrible gale'd have been good. If [by doing this] I become that, then so be it. — Kohta Hirano

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Raheel Farooq

I like religion and art because they know they are servants to life; I hate science and philosophy because they think they are its masters. — Raheel Farooq

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Reid A. Ashbaucher

Morality is totally God's standard, and his standards and conditions are revealed to us through his written word, the Scriptures (The Bible). — Reid A. Ashbaucher

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Edward Abbey

Art, science, philosophy, religion
each offers at best only a crude simplification of actual living experience. — Edward Abbey

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Brigham Young

If an Elder shall give us a lecture upon astronomy, chemistry, or geology, our religion embraces it all. It matters not what the subject be, if it tends to improve the mind, exalt the feelings, and enlarge the capacity. The truth that is in all the arts and sciences forms part of our religion. Faith is no more a part of it than any other true principle of philosophy. — Brigham Young

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Muse

... there in this place
where nothingness takes
but for the glimmer
a steadfast shimmer
all would be consumed ... — Muse

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Fakeer Ishavardas

Yeah, I love your hateful messiahs and gods, as I cherish all idiots, and mad dogs. — Fakeer Ishavardas

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Stephan Delbos

[On Jason Mashak's book SALTY AS A LIP, as reviewed in The Prague Post:] Mashak amalgamates various national, historical and religious traditions into a myth-mash that illuminates many sects' fanatical compartmentalizing, and the fact that so many religions and philosophies share similar goals, if not roots. — Stephan Delbos

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By William Jennings Bryan

The only part of evolution in which any considerable interest is felt is evolution applied to man. A hypothesis in regard to the rocks and plant life does not affect the philosophy upon which one's life is built. Evolution applied to fish, birds and beasts would not materially affect man's view of his own responsibilities except as the acceptance of an unsupported hypothesis as to these would be used to support a similar hypothesis as to man. The evolution that is harmful - distinctly so - is the evolution that destroys man's family tree as taught by the Bible and makes him a descendant of the lower forms of life. This ... is a very vital matter. — William Jennings Bryan

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Isaac Asimov

I have never, in all my life, not for one moment, been tempted toward religion of any kind. The fact is that I feel no spiritual void. I have my philosophy of life, which does not include any aspect of the supernatural and which I find totally satisfying. I am, in short, a rationalist and believe only that which reason tells me is so. — Isaac Asimov

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Kenneth Samples

The truth that there is an infinite, eternal, and personal mind behind the realities of the universe that can be detected through human reflection is the most transformative Christian apologetics idea in history. Christianity's explosive explanatory power and scope extends to such human enterprises as philosophy, psychology, science, religion, the arts, history, law, education, labor, economics, and medicine. — Kenneth Samples

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By John O'Donohue

The call to the creative life is a call to dignity, to a life of vulnerability and adventure and the call to a life that exquisite excitement and indeed ecstasy will often visit. — John O'Donohue

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By John Gray

Science enables humans to satisfy their needs. It does nothing to change them. They are no different today from what they have always been. There is progress in knowledge, but not in ethics. This s the verdict both of science and history, and the view of every one of the world's religions. — John Gray

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Sam Killermann

It's gotten far easier to allow ourselves to hate than it is to choose to love. — Sam Killermann

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Michael Ruse

The definition of a philosopher is a blind man in a dark room looking for a black hat, which isn't really there. And the definition of a theologian is he's somebody who finds it. — Michael Ruse

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Ralph Waldo Emerson

Why should not we have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs? — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Jenna Miscavige Hill

Of course, the tricky thing about these little questions was that, once I started asking them, it was hard to stop. — Jenna Miscavige Hill

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Pierre Abelard

I had wished to find in philosophy and religion a remedy for my disgrace; I searched out an asylum to secure me from love ... duty, reason and decency, which upon other occasions have some power over me, are here useless. The Gospel is a language I do not understand when it opposes my passion ... but when love has once been sincere how difficult it is to determine to love no more! 'Tis a thousand times more easy to renounce the world than love. I hate this deceitful, faithless world; I think no more of it ... — Pierre Abelard

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Christie Maurer

So your High Priest and Sacerdote propose to kill Death." Edroc — Christie Maurer

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Criss Jami

Philosophy may serve as the bridge between theology and science. All atheism is a philosophy, but not all philosophy is atheism. Philosophy ('love of wisdom') is simply a tool depending on how one uses it, and in some cases, logically understanding the nature of God and existence. — Criss Jami

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By George Gurdjieff

Religion is doing; a man does not merely think his religion or feel it, he lives his religion as much as he is able, otherwise it is not religion but fantasy or philosophy. — George Gurdjieff

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Mark Twain

The easy confidence with which I know another man's religion is folly teaches me to suspect that my own is also. — Mark Twain

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Friedrich Nietzsche

... if you refuse to let your own suffering lie upon you for an hour and if you constantly try to prevent and forestall all possible stress way ahead of time; if you experience suffering and displeasure as evil, hateful, worthy of annihilation, and as a defect of existence, then it is clear that besides your religion of pity you also harbor another religion in your heart that is perhaps the mother of the religion of pity: the religion of comfortableness. How little you know of human happiness, you comfortable and benevolent people, for happiness and unhappiness are sisters and even twins that either grow up together or, as in your case, remain small together. — Friedrich Nietzsche

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By John Daniel

A religious system is to be judged by its idea of God, for it is upon this that its whole structure rests. — John Daniel

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Alexander Pope

The pride of aiming at more knowledge, and pretending to more perfection, is the cause of Man's error and misery. — Alexander Pope

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Roger Scruton

Take away religion, take away philosophy, take away the higher aims of art, and you deprive ordinary people of the ways in which they can represent their apartness. Human nature, once something to live up to, becomes something to live down to instead. Biological reductionism nurtures this 'living down', which is why people so readily fall for it. It makes cynicism respectable and degeneracy chic. It abolishes our kind, and with it our kindness. — Roger Scruton

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Opinion about religion might be different, but religion should be one and that is the well being of humanity. — Debasish Mridha

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

If you want to consume the cream of Christ's philosophy, then don't read the Bible, read Tolstoy. — Abhijit Naskar

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Deep scientific psychoanalysis reveals that excessive beliefs and dependence on religion is a superstition and fear induced psychiatric disease. — Debasish Mridha

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Danny Masterson

Although I respect the Judeo-Christian ethic, as well as the Eastern philosophies, and of course the teachings of Muhammad, I find that organized religion has corrupted those beliefs to justify countless atrocities throughout the ages. Were I to go to church, I'd be a hypocrite. — Danny Masterson

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Thomas Huxley

Missionaries, whether of philosophy or religion, rarely make rapid way, unless their preachings fall in with the prepossessions ofthe multitude of shallow thinkers, or can be made to serve as a stalking-horse for the promotion of the practical aims of the still larger multitude, who do not profess to think much, but are quite certain they want a great deal. — Thomas Huxley

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By William James

Religion, therefore, as I now ask you arbitrarily to take it, shall mean for us the feelings, acts, and experiences of individual men in their solitude, so far as they apprehend themselves to stand in relation to whatever they may consider the divine. Since the relation may be either moral, physical, or ritual, it is evident that out of religion in the sense in which we take it, theologies, philosophies, and ecclesiastical organizations may secondarily grow. — William James

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Gustave Flaubert

I believe in Supreme Being, a Creator, whoever he may be, it's of no importance to me, who put us here on earth to do our duty as citizens and fathers; but I don't need to go to church and kiss silver platters and dig into my pocket to fatten up a lot of humbugs who eat better than you or I do! Because he can be worshiped just as well in a wood, a field, or even just gazing at the ethereal vault, like the ancients. — Gustave Flaubert

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Ken Ham

It is not a matter of whether one is biased or not. It is really a question of which bias is the best bias with which to be biased. — Ken Ham

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By C.S. Lewis

Let us suppose that such a person began by observing those Christian activities which are, in a sense, directed towards this present world. He would find that this religion had, as a mere matter of historical fact, been the agent which preserved such secular civilization as survived the fall of the Roman Empire; that to it Europe owes the salvation, in those perilous ages, of civilized agriculture, architecture, laws, and literacy itself. He would find that this same religion has always been healing the sick and caring for the poor; that it has, more than any other, blessed marriage; and that arts and philosophy tend to flourish in its neighborhood. In a word, it is always either doing, or at least repenting with shame for not having done, all the things which secular humanitarianism enjoins. If our enquirer stopped at this point he would have no difficulty in classifying Christianity - giving it its place on a map of the 'great religions. — C.S. Lewis

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Dejan Stojanovic

The universe is God's son. — Dejan Stojanovic

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Praying is a pure action. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By John Dewey

The very problem of mind and body suggests division; I do not know of anything so disastrously affected by the habit of division as this particular theme. In its discussion are reflected the splitting off from each other of religion, morals and science; the divorce of philosophy from science and of both from the arts of conduct. The evils which we suffer in education, in religion, in the materialism of business and the aloofness of "intellectuals" from life, in the whole separation of knowledge and practice
all testify to the necessity of seeing mind-body as an integral whole. — John Dewey

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By A.C. Grayling

Whereas the consolations of religion are mainly personal, the burdens are social and political as well as personal. — A.C. Grayling

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

I am the bridge that connects these two ever- separated banks of human understanding. — Abhijit Naskar

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Jarett Sabirsh

being attached to any one philosophy or religion
dwelling on moot differences and wanting to fit in
despite the path all are led Home in time
following an alternative pathway is certainly no crime
Krishna, Buddha, Allah or Zohar Kabbalah
devoted nonviolently, one is led to Nirvana
Hindu Sages, Zen Masters or Christian Mystics
many tongues, but identical truth spoken from their lips
mentioning Self or no-self or God is Father or Mother
according to their culture emphasizing one method or another
allness vs. nothingness, meditation vs. prayer
devotion in practice is all you should care
when Truth reveals itself you're beyond all conception
then not a single man-made word will hold any traction — Jarett Sabirsh

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By John Dewey

Faith in the possibilities of continued and rigorous inquiry does not limit access to truth to any channel or scheme of things. It does not first say that truth is universal and then add there is but one road to it. — John Dewey

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Fakeer Ishavardas

Simply put, DHARMA is Dhya (Aim) mein (unto) raman (walkabout) - Sojourn Unto the [Ultimate] Aim [the Truth of What Is- God]. — Fakeer Ishavardas

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

Scientific Religion is compatible with Science and in fact, they enrich each other. That's because scientific religion is simply the realization of divinity within one's heart. Therefore, Science and Scientific Religion smoothen each other's path of progress. While on the contrary, far from being compatible with Science, Theoretical Religion consistently tries to impede the development of human society. Moreover, being rigidly based on bookish doctrines, it keeps making efforts to drag the human society back to the Stone Age.
I am afraid, if you don't act now, the relentless battle between Theoretical Religions will turn this beautiful planet which we call home, into a barren wasteland. — Abhijit Naskar

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Raheel Farooq

Religion of the masses is absurd. But so is their science! — Raheel Farooq

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

Science works through replication, rectification and modification. But when it comes to religion, people simply tend to accept the theoretical preachers and their claims of historical God experiences without a single question. If there has been one experience in this world in any branch of knowledge, it absolutely follows that that experience will be repeated eternally. If they are not repeated through natural processes, the thinking humanity would have no way but to disprove that such an experience ever occurred in the history. — Abhijit Naskar

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Lev Grossman

Forget everything you ordinarily associate with religious study. Strip away all the reverence and the awe and the art and the philosophy of it. Treat the subject coldly. Imagine yourself to be a theologist, but a special kind of theologist, one who studies gods the way an entomologist studies insects. Take as your dataset the entirety of world mythology and treat it as a collection of field observations and statistics pertaining to a hypothetical species: the god. Proceed from there. — Lev Grossman

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

I am proud to say to you that, I am a scientist and I accept all religions to be biologically true and equal. My pursuit of understanding the human mind has taught me universal tolerance. — Abhijit Naskar

Philosophy Vs Religion Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

By believing in an imaginary invisible supernatural entity, humans may become good citizens. But this is not religion. This is merely an illusion of religion. — Abhijit Naskar
