Critical Thinking: Hinduism Worldview

Hinduism Worldview

The Question of Origin- How did life begin? How did humanity come into existence?

Humanity is a machine, a product of deterministic conditioning man has a little, if any real control over his or her existence, and when the machine breaks, life is over. God is not a personal, benevolent Creator, who cares for His creation and answers prayers, etc. Everything has always been in existence and is part of God

How would your selected worldview respond to this question?

It tells you how life begins and why humanity comes to existence.

Compare and contrast with how the biblical worldview would answer this question?

Humanism is faith in science and non-theist it’s not feminism there’s nothing to compare. Humanism is more suited to equate with religion. It says a human is the measure of all things rather than divine entities.

It’s only helpful to contrast religion with humanism if religion, in general, can provide consistent meaning and it doesn’t. Humanism is in utter and total contrast with Christianity. Yes, humanism is “for” the promotion of strictly human values in contrast to superstitious values. Humanism often defined in contrast to getting your ethics through supernatural means. It is an ideology that respects humans dignity.

The Question of Identity- What Does it mean to be human? Are humans more important than animals?

Humanity is simply a more sophisticated animal, but it is not greater in value or the animal kingdom. Since man and animals come from a similar ancestry, humanity should not be viewed or valued as superior in species.

How would your selected worldview answer this question?

It tells you the different between humans and animals.

Compare and contrast this with how the biblical worldview would answer this question?

The human being, for humanism, is animal rationale people is not just an animal. Humans are spiritual beings. Humanism takes an initial premise that people are most relevant. Not biodiversity or animals rights. That’s anthropocentric.

Contrast to humanism where objects have value, but sacred status reserved for animals and humans. I rather like humanism as it is the first religion which made us human from animal. I only believe in humanism. If we are human, we should be respectful of each other we should be responsible for the animals and nature.

The question of meaning/purpose- why does humanity exist? Why do I exist?

Humanism sees humanity as a highly evolved animal and through reason can conclude that man has the moral responsibility to give meaning and value to her or his life. Man’s value and purpose are seen in his or her ability to leave a positive impact on others and the world around them.

How would your selected worldview answer this question?

I describe the meaning and purpose of humanity and why it exist.

Compare and contrast this with the biblical worldview would answer this question?

Humanism, as an inferior worldview, must borrow from the beliefs and narrative of evangelical Christianity. In the meaning of humanism, we never were humans. For what prime purpose shall be to help each other.

Once you find the truth purpose and meaning to live and not self-satisfaction humanism and pleasing things, only then you can be happy. Men and women were creating meaning together to give our life purpose. Purpose and meaning can come from different places.

The question of morality- what is meant by right and wrong? Should I live?

Relativism rejects the idea of absolute truth and some things that are true at all times and all places. Relativism teaches that truth is dependent upon the individual or society and changes what right today is and may be wrong tomorrow.

How would your selected worldview answer this question?

I write about what right from wrong.

Compare and contrast this with how the biblical worldview answer this question?

Humanism wants humanity to reject God instead turn towards, humans made God named relativism right and wrong. Their no truth or good and evil man become a self-righteous general unwillingness to follow authority.

Humanism is flawed; there are like no standards individuals concepts of right and wrong vary in credibility. Religion shows you what’s good and bad humanism leads us to this nonsense everyone has their thoughts. But according to liberalism and humanism in general, there’s no objective good and evil, and it’s just what you think.

The question of Destiny- is there life after death? What will happen to me when I die?

When a person dies the material stops functioning as it did, and the process of decomposition begins to take place. Only what one has done to impact the lives of others and the world around them lives on.

How would your selected worldview answer this question?

Choose the impact and what it means when a person dies.

Compare and contrast this with how the biblical worldview would answer this question?

Humanism teaches that death is the ultimate end humanism says there this and this life only. They don’t believe in life after death. Humanism is a religion that says when they die they return to dust, the end when I die I go back to him, the beginning.
