When certain members in a society reject ideologies imposed by another individual or community social divisions are bound to occur. Thus, social divisions may occur as a result of ideological differences rooted in faith.

    For the first thesis- “faith is blind, science is evidence based”, Dawkins suggested that religion teaches us to be satisfied with not really understanding. For instance, when one religious person faces with some difficult problem, he/she will just justify it by using the quote of “Oh, God did it!” On the other hand, Lennox suggested that blind faith can be very dangerous especially when it’s coupled with blind obedience to an evil authority but not all faith is blind faith. Faith might be…

    • 6 Pages

    Religion in philanthropy and faith-based organizations have been frequently discussed in academic literature and research. Through this literature review, I will discuss the research on both. All major religions emphasize generosity to those in need. In Christianity, believers are called to love their neighbors (Seelarbokus, 2016).

For the purpose of this argument, it must be made clear that it is faith that makes religion unreasonable. I propose that, reason and religion are fundamentally in conflict. Secondly, that because of this fundamental difference, it is unreasonable to believe something that is based on faith alone. Therefore, religious…
