it is true that RELIGION is an opium. there were thousands wars were during 5000 years fought to establish  peace. every war was new and hoping that will establish ed peace. science is like the Indian parliament, EVERY TIME CHANCES OF AMENDMENTS. today’s technology changed in tomorrow. several chances of inventions and development but the principles of philosophies are unaffected. if they say that there are 24 AVTAARS, TEERTHANKARS, 5 SINS, 4 KASHAYAS, and any principle, they are at present not changed. so in my view philosophies are  important to establish the peace in the society, in family and in we respect the opinion of others and follow the teachings of philosophies.religion creates disturbances in individual, family , society and nation to nation.
