Will Christianity survive Technology?

Religion vs. Science in an era of technological advancement

For some Americans, Christianity is the only thing that matters in life. For others, religion has become insufferable and they would rather see it vanish from existence than deal with consequences of religion on politics and society.

Many Christians worry that the end of the world is near, citing the happenings in the middle east, corruption of today’s youths’ minds and issues with sexuality and disease. Christianity and other religions have withstood the test of time during humanity’s primitive era, but how will they fare against time as technology is introduced into the equation? The fact is, religion will struggle because of the more extravagant claims that leaders of faith have made in public.

As we stumble through these early stages of technological evolution in a world where science and religion are fighting over “truth”, something has to give. Continued studies in archeology, evolution, space travel and genetics

will force humanity to tackle new questions that neither science to date OR religious texts have answers to.

In my view, Christian leaders have a major crossroads quickly approaching. The question they’ll have to tackle is whether they will embrace or deny science as we tackle the 21st century. Between religion and science, I have a hard time believing that the latter would survive its current course. Scientific theories that contradict the bible or religion in general tend to have evidence to support the theories or accepted fact.

People of faith believe that certain principles and ‘facts’ are true because the religious texts, like the Bible say so and ‘the word’ can not be questioned. The problem of course, is when you try to apply these religious principles to non-believers. This leads atheists and scientists to argue that Christians aren’t interested in ‘logic’ and they’ve allowed themselves to be taken by propaganda. The truth lies somewhere in the middle, but it’s not going to end well for Christians if they continue with their traditional mindset.

Institutionalization is often the last step before humanity is lost. Like alcoholism, drug addiction, and sexual deviance, religiosity can be harmful to individuals and society. Believe it or not, I identify with Christianity. In fact, I call myself Christian, but I’m more like the black sheep in the flock, and I hope more people will begin to use their brains rather than allow institutions to furnish ‘truth’ that is often fabricated or tainted by ‘man’. (e.g. the creationist museums with cavemen on dinosaurs?)

As we delve deeper into the information and technology age, religion is going to have to evolve too or else it won’t have a place in society, and that would be a shame. For all of the harm that religion does to society in the form of intolerance, brain washing, and promoting war, it is also is a great source of love, kindness, and a wonderful natural anti-depressant. Hope is the essence of mankind, without religion there would be no such thing as hope, and for many that would make life completely meaningless.
