Faith versus scientific attitude (3)

Faith stems from the emotional aspect of human beings, whereas scientific attitude is driven by intellect.

Emotions are essential for survival, whereas intellect is needed for continued existence and evolution.

It is not sufficient to merely exist. One needs to evolve further. That makes both faith and scientific attitude part of life.

Faith versus scientific attitude (2)

 Faith is beautiful. But ...

There is no guarantee that faith always takes us forward.

In contrast, scientific attitude provides some guarantee about moving forward. It is like oaring the boat in a known direction rather than just drifting along with the tides.

Scientific attitude is a systematic approach to life.

When it matters, scientific attitude is preferable to faith.

Faith versus scientific attitude

Faith is an inalienable part of life.

Faith asks no questions. It just accepts things. Intellect has no place in faith.

There is really nothing like blind faith. All faiths are blind if you choose to categorize them that way.

Acceptability of any faith depends on its long term consequences and not on its validity.
Any faith is acceptable as long as it does not have adverse repercussions.
One needs to be flexible to alter one's faith when it is found to be harmful.
