Let us think why humanity developed several religions but only one science?
This is a food of thought that humanity developed several religions but only one science? Devotees of different religions follow different customs, rituals, prayers, attributes of gods, etc. Each religion has quite a few sects; these sects are further divided as per the geographical locations. Thus, religious concepts of different people are altogether different.

For example, the devotees of one religion sacrifice animals to appease their gods: whereas, the followers of another one propitiate their gods through the service of those animals. To take another example, the idol worship is core of one religion: however, the other one has imposed a taboo over idol worship. Most devotees explain that the discrepancy among religions is because religions originated in different geographical locations.

Apart from religions, science was also conceived by the scientists of diverse origin; however, they discovered similar principles. There is no existence of Indian science, British science or American science. All over the world, many pioneer scientists discovered their principles, and later others performed several experiments to help establish those. If some principle was found to be incorrect, soon its inventor accepted the truth. This system of experimentation in the quest for truth was rarely followed by the draftsmen of religions. This fundamental mistake facilitated the birth and the continuance of several religions in the world.
There is one concrete reason behind the existence of many religious concepts and only one science on the earth. About one thing or concept, there is only one truth but there can be many lies. Today, humankind has to conceive a global religion with a humane core. All countries have to write a new Bible of international rules and regulations.

RE: Let us think why humanity developed several religions but only one science?
Well, it depends on how you define "science". Many of the early practitioners of research into the natural world would not remotely qualify as "doing science" by today's standard. Some of them hit upon good information, and even upon experiments, but as often as not it was just what Vonnegut called "Guessers" developing expertise that was rife with the biases of the researcher. It is, of course, often these biased earlier versions, prior to the 19th century, to which religionists like to cite when criticizing modern science.

But the Scientific Method did not develop overnight or in several independent locations; rather, it was a process of "fumbling toward" (borrowing a term from Sarah McLachlan) the current idea we have among scientists, with groups sharing bits around the globe. It is no coincidence that the modern Method was developed worldwide as global travel (and thus communication) became possible.

The main thing that the modern Scientific Method developed was the idea of competition among scientists, of questioning every idea and having allegiance to none. This emerged in large part because of competition between and among the different types of research methods employed by the people publishing these newly-shared letters and periodicals that a more-or-less uniform standard of scientific practice was established... it was found that doubt, rather than authority (because the scientists from England did not recognize the automatic authority of German scientists, for instance), was the key to eliminating human bias from the research to the highest degree.

As for the "global religion" of which you speak, I have no idea what you're talking about other than to say it sounds like A Terrible Idea™.

Or we can just ditch religion. Guess which option I prefer?

Religions already have human core - will to dominate others, fear of unknown, arrogance. What can be more human than that?

Also why exactly people have to create global religion?

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Why do we need theistic religion at all?

International laws and regulations? Google Hugo Grotius

Just as there's many branches of science - there are many branches of religion.....

Catholicism, Hinduism, Islam, ect.........

Physics, Geology, Biology, ect..............


The difference, is religion is based on that which is unseen, unknown, and un-provable --- while science is based on that which is.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

We have one reality we can observe and countless fictional worlds we can imagine. This is why we have science based on observation & experiment of the one reality we all share and many religions based on imagination & often fear of the unknown.

Hi Welcome Smile

Instead of a new Bible, I'm in favor of more education and courses on religion--from a scholarly point of view. Courses that showcase where these religions came from, what the passages really mean, and discuss the culture and "science" and myths of the time--what propelled people to believe as they did.

I think it would be great to highlight actual science along with the passages to show the incorrect "sciencing" within the Bible (i.e. no evidence for Noah's flood, how evolution squashes Genesis etc.).

A course on the psychology of religion that shows why people do tend to believe in gods and engage in magical thinking from a scientific point of view based on the way the brain is set up (i.e. pattern making, need for order, etc.) would be great as well. Andy Thomson has a wonderful lecture online on why people believe in gods.

More education all around will thwart religion.
