A Disquisition on Religion, Science and the State

Religion, science, and the state, at which point of a person’s life do these three intertwine?

Philosopher and historian Christian Jaramillo puts forward new and revolutionary approaches to understanding God, the stances that religions should adopt, the development of science, and the State’s role in the pursuit of human freedom. He presents it all in the engrossing pages of A Disquisition on Religion, Science and the State: Essay.

By studying the evolution of mankind and its religious societies over the past thirteen thousand years, Jaramillo demonstrates that, through syncretism, man has ultimately worshipped the same one God under different names. He reaffirms the existence of God, the validity of universal philosophers, and the significance of religions in the construction of ancient and modern societies.

Throughout the pages, the author boldly proposes a new theology for life, rejects immortality after death, and unravels some of the religious myths that have created structural flaws for humanity in constructing their societies, such as the deterioration of human habitat, the destruction of ethnic groups and the many confrontations between races and peoples.

Be stirred and shaken as Jaramillo denounces the powerful obsession of religions in controlling mankind through their influence over State decisions, to the detriment of the spiritual freedoms and inalienable natural liberties of man, which supersede the State and inhibit science.

KIRKUS - “A less-than-modest proposal to change the role of religions in the world. Jaramillo begins with the firm, unwavering statement that God does in fact exist. With that as his background, however, he moves forward to attack basically all organized religion as having misled generations of people and stagnated our modern world. Though he acknowledges several positive contributions from religion and also affirms the freedom to choose association with any particular religion, Jaramillo nonetheless takes issue with their underpinnings, structures and conclusions. Jaramillo’s contributions come in his closing chapters as he asks the faith world to reform itself for the sake of humanity. His is an ambitious request, and he knows it, but he also believes that human progress will force religion’s hand over time.

A short volume with big expectations—and big challenges”.

KIRKUS Francés - "Une proposition moins-que-modeste pour changer le rôle des religions dans le monde. Jaramillo commence avec la firme, inébranlable affirmation que Dieu existe en fait. Avec ce que son fond, cependant, il va de l'avant pour attaquer fondamentalement toute religion organisée comme ayant trompé des générations de personnes et a stagné notre monde moderne. Bien qu'il reconnaisse plusieurs contributions positives de la religion et affirme également la liberté de choisir l'association à une religion particulière, Jaramillo prend néanmoins question avec leurs fondements, les structures et les conclusions. Jaramillo contributions proviennent de fermeture dans ses chapitres, comme il demande au monde la foi à se réformer pour le bien de l'humanité. Sa demande est un ambitieux, et il le sait, mais il croit aussi que le progrès humain va forcer la main de la religion dans le temps.

Un petit volume avec les attentes et les grands-grands défis ".
