Many times the world has come in conflict between religious reasoning and the scientific reasoning. Though each have their own pros and cons, eventually, one would weigh heavier than the other.
In my opinion, religious reasoning is always adjacent with God, and the fact that it is the good or the better good. They can give hope (even false hope), a philosophical meaning to almost everything and an easier way of how things are to be. In the event of a miss fortune, reflections and prayer would always seem to optimize the believer and encourage oneself to keep calm, carry on continue doing good.
But in contrast to the scientific or artistic belief, religious and moral reasoning fail to prove the evident truth. In contradiction to the scientific belief of the existence of a supreme being erases the first rule of a religion of the existence of a God. There is no argument to know which is good or which is bad, but to do the bad in order for the abrupt good or for ones welfare.
The scientific process of reason would focus on the present. What we understand about the world and make the universe smaller as we continue to understand it. But the knowledge of no afterlife or no meaning would often terrify the believer. This, without doubt, is the inevitable and probably the reason for the belief of a god.
