Exploring Meaning of Life


This book aims to understand the position of science and faith on questions of meaning in existence. Mutual understanding of original views of both camps is necessary for the mutual progress and co-existence of both reason and values in a healthy, progressive and spiritual society.

Science should not be at the service of faith, but dedicated to identifying natural cause and effect relationships. Nevertheless, we hope to show that faith does not frustrate that purpose. Science should be universal and its established knowledge through evidence should benefit all mankind and should be developed and contributed in by people from diverse backgrounds.

No religious text is a pure science book nor any religion claims as such. On the other hand, understanding and explaining the deeper meaning of life is beyond the domain of science. Science cannot be an arbiter in philosophical, moral, social and political matters.

It is hoped that this essay will clarify the epistemological boundaries. It supports non-overlapping Magesteria and makes a case for mutual co-existence of both reason and values in the future of society.

    Very Good effort.
    But just a correction, I think the Title should be “Exploring the Meaning of Life” and not “Exploring Meaning of Life”
