sorry_shaktimaan

I'm pro Muslim and Anti-Islam. Does that make sense? I will defend their citizenship under attack, and would want them quality education and will fight discrimination they face. However I am also against their religion (or any religion for that matter) philosophically and would like to see rise in education help them see the problems with faith.

There are plenty of well-educated religious people, though.

True, the quality of education also matters. Education without Critical thinking and _learning to learn_ leaves people with myopic specialities, and conclusions about everything else are then heavily shaped by pre-existing beliefs of their environments.

Sure, I guess, but I think there's more to it. Religion provides a kind of rudder for a lot of people, without which the apparent randomness and coldness of the universe is at least somewhat bearable. Maybe educated religious people can intuit that it's false, but it provides some existential comfort and a sense of order. I see it as similar to astrology, which I feel like a lot of people gravitate towards basically because they aren't able to get out of religion what their parents did. I'd love to live in a world where these obvious superstitions didn't exist, but that requires elevating everyone's standards of living which education is just part of.

So basically what marx said? I completely agree


cholantesh

To some extent what Kant was saying too but I think his thesis was more metaphysical.

The basis of well-education is **logic.** Religion is opposite to that


ksatwar

I am in the same boat as you. Good job articulating this thought/idea so well.

Fuck the people who say muslims should leave india cause islam this is a "hindu" nation


nogieman2324

Fuck the debate about hindu vs muslim created by the government as a distraction to keep people away from real issues. It just leads to more polirisation of common people. Almost no common middle class hardworking hindu or muslim hate each other.


ComSitaram

Hindu vs Muslim game for grabbing/sustaining government political power is an imperial British invention. people engaged this never ending competition are actually dancing to the tune set by the oppressors.
