information and communication technology will shape the future

Reader comment on item: Can Islam Be Reformed?

Submitted by servet cevik (Turkey), Nov 4, 2013 at 15:39

Religions are humanity's desperate and fictive response to most basic existensialist questions. As the realm of scientific understanding is expanding the realm of religion has been pushed further away. But still the concept of religion (deeply embedded within culture) is (unfortunately) continuing to shape our lives with varying degrees.

All religions are non-logical and baseless and proofless institutions but still the humanity has not developed a culture to live without them.

But as the communication and information technology is rapidly developing and letting humans reach information and knowledge much more easily and efficiently than has been in the past, religions' influence on human mind will diminish. Cultural exchange and inter cultural interactions are also happening much faster than ever thanks to global satellite coverage and internet reaching even the remotest corners of the world.

I expect and hope that in the life of our children, religion will be playing a far less intrusive factor than it has been in our lives.

Religion has no role and function in the future and will eventually cease to exist within our lives
