THE NEED OF DEVELOPING A SCIENTIFIC ATTITUDE
Scientific attitude is a logical way of thinking clearly, reasonably without any disturbance or prejudice. Do you think it’s necessary? Yes, it is important because illogical thinking can create problems in our life. So better we think wisely.
Science teaches us to think correctly. Scientific attitude means not accepting any such fact which does not have any proof. Never accept a statement unless we are given the proof of it. Though we were told that the earth is round, we didn’t believe the fact. Galileo gave us many proofs also. So let’s understand one thingthat never comes to conclusions at once. Understand and verify every small thing. It the nature of human psychology that how easily we believe in rumors and gossips. And I can say many of us are responsible for doing this. Now-a-days a rumor which says the world will end in 2012 has spread worldwide. And people have already started committing suicides. This madness shows that how fast we get carried away by rumors.
When you have scientific attitude, you should not believe in superstitions or black magic types of things. Always believe in your own capacity to think and act wisely. For example if a student does not do well in his exams, then heshould be the one to blame himself and not his luck or stars. Some people believe in superstitions such as wearing a lucky locket or a chain may prove useful to them. But this is utter rubbish. Always carry a scientific attitude in mind and move on.
In the earlier days people did not have that much knowledge and were declared superstitious. But today now we know better. We are aware of the fact there is nothing like ghosts or something. It is a fear that has acquired place in the minds of the people.
Today we are living in the age of science, we should not believe in these things which spread like rumors. Having faith in such things can be a obstruction to our progress. We should develop a attitude which is quite scientific and logical. This is what is more important. So let’s be modern and carry a good, logical way of thinking with a scientific attitude and move on in life.

Our problems are nothing but our superstitious mind. Mind had been so much influenced since ages with age old traditional believe system. Religious persons are so much scared, fear they have that, if this is not done god may not be happy and so on. They don't understand, god never wants such attitudes. In stead of, devotion, faith, trust and BHAKTI is important. Such people always forget that their fear may cause damages to many innocent minds. Why fear God, God is love.
Religious minded people are suffering from spiritual poverty. Some hold religion so strongly that their rigidity of religious felling, some time looks like, as if individual is suffering from a disease of mental ailment. Rigidity of religion divides people, community and nation. Where as spirituality unites minds, people of any religion, cast community and nations. This demands a greater understanding of religion and spirituality. No way could be developed as to how could, change of attitude be possible. At lest for peace with in disturbed self, communities and nations for, with ultimate aim of world peace understanding of facts and truth is important.
Preconceived opinions or ideas with out any authentic logic, people are born and growing with such ancient’s thoughts.
An irrational fear of unknown, mysterious, religious practices is creating all the problems with in ones mind. Superstitions are nothing but an unscientific ideas, thoughts which is unadulterated believes one grow with and practice during one's life time. These go on with generations with out knowing the reasons behind.
Solutions are there, we are improving very slowly. We need scientific temper, scientific attitudes along with knowledge. At least knowledge would help a person to find out reasons behind such thoughts. In spite of so much awareness of Education, still there are so many people who lack proper knowledge and logic of science. Is it not surprising that one has to give his life for, because he was fighting scientifically against superstition and religious believe systems. It is very sad that DR.NARENDRA DABHOLKAR has to die, an unfortunate death.
Nation very much is in need of such people. Do we ever have RAJA RAMMOHON ROY, ISHARCHANDRA VIDHYASAGAR who fought against the religious traditional superstitious bad practices? They fought against CHILD MARRIAGE, SATHIDHA PRATHA, burning of married girls along with their dead husbands. Education for all genders, the girl child, and most important one is WIDOW MARRIAGE. Iswarchandra Vidyasgar married his son with a widow. Could we ever have such people who have love for their religion with scientific temper and attitude in their mind? Education in science needs more boost up along with other studies. Even one should have to know the science and its logic behind.
Through scientific education, science has to penetrate societies and communities to get rid from age old traditional superstitions from the religious God fearing people. All have to understand that spirituality brings unity of minds where as religion or religious rigidity divides minds, minds of people.
SAMI VIVEKHANANDA felt that, "He repeatedly told us to throw away all preconceived ideas and reason for ourselves before believing in any thing. He talked about experimental verification, in Astronomy or chemistry for example, as illustrations for methods to follow before drawing our conclusions even in spiritual matters. He also argued tirelessly that messages from Vedanta were not in conflict with the tents of modern science. But he insisted that we should not believe in his arguments blindly, as like VEDVAKYA."
