  1. The question doesn't make sense. If you do not pay attention to the fact that these are peculiar forms of social consciousness, then there are no similarities or differences between philosophy and religion. You might as well look for similarities and differences between a good dinner and an opera production.

    Philosophy (from Greek, love of wisdom) is a way of knowing the world around us, an attempt to find answers to the main questions of the universe and existence. In a narrow sense, it is a science with the broadest subject area, the “science of sciences”. There is also a section called religious philosophy.

    Religion (from Latin – restoration of communication) is a system of views based on the belief “in the realization of the expected and confidence in the invisible.” Religion is aimed at showing a person the path to his Creator and does not set itself the task of explaining the world around him. There is an aphorism attributed to Galileo: “The Holy Spirit teaches us how to get to heaven, but not how it is arranged.”

    Of course, a person can not without having questions about his faith. But these are different questions, they are spiritual questions, and to find answers to them, there is a scientific discipline called theology (theology), which examines texts and explains their meanings.

    Questions of life and death are philosophical questions and are often dealt with in religious philosophy. To answer briefly, in the tradition of Russian religious philosophy, death and immortality of a person are considered as his fate, that is, through death, immortality is achieved.

  2. Philosophy is a distortion or agreement with the truth.Orthodoxy does not call for agreeing or distorting the truth, it calls for accepting the truth, and the truth is Christ.By distorting the truth, a person distorts only himself. Philosophers have different views on death. And Orthodoxy simply explains that death is the door leading to God and to the last Judgment.

  3. Such a question can only be posed by a person whose ” Soul and Mind are not in harmony.” Behind which you can see an atheistic upbringing.

    Philosophy is a special form of cognition of the world that develops a system of knowledge about the most general characteristics, extremely generalizing concepts and fundamental principles of reality (being) and cognition, human being, and the relationship between man and the world.

    Plato (428/427-348/347 BC) – an outstanding Greek philosopher, known for his famous dialogues, as well as the Academy established in Athens-the prototype of the world's first university.

    The universal soul (Greek: ψυχὴ τοϋ κόσμου, Lat. anima mundi, German. Weltseele) – in philosophy, the single inner nature of the world, thought of as the Supreme living being (God), with aspirations, ideas and feelings. Many philosophical doctrines, which derived the unity of the world from the eternal realm of being ideal or intelligible, recognized, however, the Universal soul, which lives in all phenomena, as a subordinate principle, perceiving and realizing in the sense domain and in the temporal process the highest ideal unity, which eternally resides in the absolute beginning. This view of the Universal Soul was expounded in Plato's Timaeus and then became one of the main points in the philosophy of Plato and the Neo-Platonists.

  4. Philosophy – I think about the world order

    Mythology – voOBRA(Z)I create the world order in the image and likeness of myself

    Religion-I believe in the world order through idols, idols, rituals and priests, building a prison in the image and likeness of my personality, the table under which I crawled in my family, hiding from Life.

    Darsana-I see how the world works.

  5. The similarity is that both here and there basic fundamental concepts are considered, such as life and death, good and evil, etc.but the difference is that philosophy is a science, so its goal is to search for truth, and religion does not search for truth, because it already knows it. More precisely, it pretends to know. 🙂

    And another difference is that people engage in philosophy selflessly, while religion is aimed at siphoning money from gullible citizens.

  6. Yes, in fact, Religion is an object of faith philosophy is an explanation of the very essence of the object of faith That's all those there are even concepts such as” Christian Philosophy “or” Buddhist Philosophy ” etc. There are many of them…

  7. What does the problem of death mean? Death is not a problem,but a solution to problems,all problems.Death for philosophy is a reason to philosophize about the transience of life, and for religion-a reason to earn a funeral service, etc.😁

  8. The similarity is that both philosophy and religion have passed by the Teachings of Christ – the science of God and Man.

    First, we need to return Christ – Andoey Glebovich Davyd to his historical place-

    Birth 6660 summer (1152) Vladimir

    Care 1296 Aachen.

    And then people will understand where to look for the Teaching of Christ.

    Neither philosophy nor religion knows what Death is.

    What is the Second Death according to Christ?

  9. Religion is the experience of the basic human ” peak experience “(insight), or communication with the Noosphere. Philosophy is the verbalization of a given experience and its exegesis. Here the common destiny of philosophy is revealed – to be an interpreter between all forms of spirituality (religion, science, art, morality). a servant of several masters, so to speak. This role of philosophy makes it the mistress of its masters. Without it, they will find neither a common language nor a way to connect with the carriers of these forms of spirituality-with people. The unique position of philosophy makes it a general methodology of cognition. As for the problem of death, the position of religion and philosophy is the same, although it is expressed in different ways. In religion-a trope, a myth, and in philosophy-a logos according to the formula “from myth to logos”. The first is expressed by the Paschal formula “Death is equal to death”, and the second is the understanding that death is an existential anchor that allows the process of universal spiritual evolution to take place.

  10. Philosophers can be materialists.
    And materialists can be religious (for the sake of a good position in society or profit).
    But God is neither philosophical conversations nor religiosity (religions brought evil to people and wars).
    Most “believers” are quite satisfied in their religiosity with references to the word God in one or another human language. But God — in reality-is not just a symbol, but He is a fully living Organism on a universal scale!
    And-people should learn to understand what is meant by the word – GOD.
    The word God refers primarily to the Primordial Universal Consciousness that exists in the deepest, most primordial, subtlest layer of multidimensional space. The Primordial Consciousness is God the Father,
    This Primordial Consciousness is one for the entire universe and, accordingly, for all its living creatures, including all people on planet Earth.
    In different earthly languages, people call Him differently: God the Father, Jehovah, Allah, Ishvara, Tao, etc. He is the God of the Jewish prophets, of Jesus Christ, of Muhammad, of the faithful in China, India, and other countries where there is a correct understanding of Him. And only human ignorance leads to the opinion that, since the “names” are different,then the Gods are different…
    God has become a “Competitor” for many religious organizations, because He can “win over” their “flock”. Who, then, will support all those who feed from the churches? So, for example, some people frighten their parishioners: “Everything that comes from the East is from the devil!”, ” If you are not with us — you will go to hell!”…
    But Jesus Christ was incarnated in the” Middle East ” — in Judea. Krishna, Babaji, and Sathya Sai are also from the East. So God is “from the East”?
    Such Orthodoxy, which is preached in our country, came to us from Byzantium. Its principle is to drum in the idea of the total sinfulness and insignificance of each person from the “laity”, the “salvation” of prayers for his salvation on the part of the priests, who” for you” pray so hard and get so tired of it that they should be thanked for it with money and everything else.
    How many Christians have loving hearts? Is it possible that even ordinary everyday experience does not point to the uselessness of the rites of the churches?
    There are of course exceptions, but there are very few such people. But here is the main question: did Orthodoxy make them so? If “yes”, then why is there so little in it like them: just.. . one or two for the whole city or village?
    The majority of the population has never understood anything of Christ's Teaching, although they consider themselves true believers; perhaps the majority of them do.
    Christ taught: Do not curse! Don't hate it!�Instead, say goodbye, bless, and love! And the Russian Orthodox do nothing but curse and hate — nations, religions, specific people.
    Although there are many good Orthodox people who seek the Truth.
    And it is precisely among those who rely only on the” salvation ” of the rite that statements about the unknowability of God have appeared…
    I would like to draw your attention to the fact that neither Jesus Christ nor any of the other Divine Teachers taught people rites. Ritualism was invented by the people themselves. And it can turn out to be a “trap” for those who really could start their own serious efforts on the Path to God.

    And how many atrocities and murders have passed through churches, and here are some examples:
    Wars between Orthodox and Catholics, “crusades”, mass exterminations of “Old Believers”, “Jewish pogroms”, hatred of all non-Orthodox Christians cultivated even now in Russian Orthodoxy…
    From the priests “fed” and the police, and various officials, and mayors. And the priests drew money and “nature” from the people-for” washing away sins”, for various ” trebs”…
    As soon as someone stopped going to church on Sundays, it immediately became a danger signal for priests and all their acolytes for their well-being. Such people were immediately subjected to police reprisals. Cases of mass murders of families of “sectarians” by mobs of such “faithful”are described.
    “Departure from Orthodoxy” was criminally prosecuted.
    … Does all this sound at least in some small way like Christianity? No, not at all!

    It is bad when faith becomes a state religion and active participation in it promises power over people and material benefits.
    How the New Testament was compiled: it also included works that were not at all Christian: the epistle of Jude and the Apocalypse, and also included passages from the epistles of the moralizing Paul, and not the Teachings of Jesus Christ at all.
    And, for example, one of the most valuable Gospels — the Gospel of Philip — was not included, because it could not be understood by those “aggressive”, and it exposed their deceit and spiritual failure.
    At the same early “councils”, the evolutionary part of Jesus ' Teaching was “forbidden”, and now the meaning of the creation of the material world, the incarnation of people and animals into physical bodies by the Creator, is understood
    – all this was beyond interpretation.
    The result was, in particular, that for two thousand years from the earthly Incarnation of Jesus, “Christian ” theologians have not been able to explain to themselves and others the meaning of human life. But it is precisely from this point that the entire methodology of spiritual work should be built…
    Moreover, as a result of the ignorance of those “aggressive” ones, it happened that the words of Jesus Christ, where He spoke about God the Father, were not included in the New Testament. And it turned out that the description of God the Father is not found in the entire Bible! But what kind of religion can there be without a description of God?!
    Vladimir — the main “baptist” of Russia, he, too, like his ancestors, became a bloodthirsty robber. Having become acquainted with how the church operates in Byzantium and having seen the benefits of such a statement of things in enslaving others to him personally, Vladimir decides to “baptize Russia” in the faith of that wildly perverted pseudo-Christian sect that existed at that time in the Roman Empire. After all, the” advantages “of the new faith for the evil ruler were obvious: with its help, it was possible to completely suppress the free-thinking of people, to subordinate their will to themselves through the mediation of”priests”.
    After all, it is so easy to secure both power and money by declaring yourself an intermediary between people and God. All you have to do is put on your “priestly” clothes and solemnly declare: behold, I have the power to ask God for your well-being, I have the right to absolve you of your sins, come to me, pay money, of course, otherwise … – you will burn forever in the fire of hell!… As if God is some kind of machine that you need to put a token in to make it work!.. And a lot of people believe them. And pays money!..

    In Christianity, which also recognizes the immortality of the human spirit, the doctrine of reincarnation existed until 553, when it was rejected at the Second Council of Constantinople.

    Each person builds his own destiny with his own decisions of ethical significance and corresponding actions. Depending on this, the practical Steward of fate-the Holy Spirit (Brahman) – will choose everyone's place of birth, parents, body for incarnation, illness, will bring them together with certain people-good and evil, smart and stupid-etc.

    In particular, if a person commits any unjustified evil to any being, then he thereby programs similar situations in his life, in his fate-now finding himself as a victim.

    Conversely, good thoughts, emotions, and actions form “good karma” – the law of forming destinies.

    This is how God teaches people not to commit unkind acts, but, on the contrary, to sympathize with the pain of others, to help everyone in all good things.

    I will repeat once again: by causing pain to others, we program it into our own destinies, by stealing now, we build our destinies so that we will be robbed, and so on.

    Moreover, the “law of karma” extends its effect to a time frame that exceeds only one earthly life. This is why, in particular, sick children are born.

    It turns out that with each new incarnation of a person, not the whole soul is embodied in the body, but, first of all, that part that requires correction, correction. And the best, that is, what was grown by everyone against the background of the emotion of true subtlest love, is saved by God for preservation in a certain “piggy bank” — kundalini. Although a person does not remember past incarnations, but the vices inherent in his soul remain, they must be eliminated, the meaning of life is to get rid of these vices and build up positive qualities in himself: love, wisdom, strength — the three qualities of God. We are born to become divine.

    Our human task here is to develop ourselves — as a soul, consciousness — sufficiently to pass the path from Creation to the Creator.

    Also, by giving us certain diseases, God suggests that we undertake a rudimentary study of the anatomy and physiology of our body.
    Behind all our pain, we need to see the guiding Hand of God, Who — through it-wants to show us something that we need to change in ourselves.

    Life on Earth is not a True Life, it is just a fairly short training course, an opportunity to become better.

    It is very important to finally understand that we are not material bodies! After all, this knowledge is absent in the mentality of even those masses of people who consider themselves believers!

    And to cry or grieve over someone's “death” is to protest against the Will of God. The theme “Why did you leave me?!” is a manifestation of your own stupid selfishness.

    After all, a good person has guaranteed himself a good fate “in the other world”, it's good for him there! Why protest against it?

  11. Philosophy is the science of the universal laws of nature, society, and thought. Religion is a belief in the otherworldly. What they have in common is that they help us to know the world. The difference is that philosophy as a science knows the world in concepts, and religion in myths and legends. Philosophy considers death to be the inevitable end of life, since nothing is eternal. Religion considers death to be a transition to another state.

  12. Similarity. Both religion and philosophy (as a science) are ways of understanding the world. Differences. Religion is a belief in supernatural forces, which from the point of view of philosophy is objective idealism. It comprehends the world in myths. Philosophy is the science of the universal laws of nature, society, and thought. It comprehends the world in terms of concepts, it is the highest form of comprehension. At the same time, idealism (objective and subjective) and materialism also take place in philosophy. That is, the religious form of understanding the world is an element of philosophy.

  13. Philosophy and religion are twins, they are inseparable.Philosophy gave birth to religion. Religion decided to make money on it.For religion, DEATH is a great manipulation and a good earnest.For a philosopher, life and death are a single whole. With respect.
