The obscurantism is an attitude which consists in refusing the distribution of the knowledges in all the domains, often for religious pretexts. This is the way Galilee was judged by the inquisition for heresy because he claimed that the Earth was round.

Link Thus the obscurantism is the refusal of the modernity or the intellectual curiosity with as ramparts the religious dogmae. Of course, it is necessary to accept the spirituality of others, but also to remember that the man was able to evolve over the centuries thanks to the technical and scientific progress, more than by the help of the catholic religion for example, which was able only to calm certain warlike heats by establishing peace days. (As God's truce >).

It is distressing, but the obscurantism is not new and it exists from time immemorial. In contrast, the agnostic or the atheist will be more opened to all the conceptions of the Universe as the scientism " because he will look for Cartesian answers to explain the birth of all the forms of life down here.

What the scientism, will you say to me? The scientism asserts that the experimental science is superior to all other forms of interpretation of the world (who the religious shape). The scientism tries "to organize scientifically the humanity", according to the definition of Wikipedia:

This conception of the humanity is fascinating, I suggest you having a small outline. I could extend for a long time there above given that I was brought to treat some of these subjects on of other one sites, but I am going to be relatively synthetic.

The confrontations between the science and the religions are frequent. Certain sulphurous scientists work on a unique model of mathematical equation, a model which would allow to include all the already existing laws of the physics and which would tend to demonstrate that they are any outcomes "of a creator of the Universe". But for the moment, their works are vain and unreliable because these researchers carry generally "a double cap", with the plurality of religious offices and scientific diplomas. Thus they are not credible of the whole in their searches.

Science and religion are never compatible. The scientist is rather one pragmatics, he tries to understand, uses "models, and prefers to stand apart religious and philosophic influences. Often so, he popularizes his theories for the general public, and no matter the provided him with financial means if he reaches his purpose.

This above, Michael Persinger. It is about an American researcher in cognitive neurosciences.It is persuaded that the religious faiths are artificially created by our brain to answer our deepest fears: fear of the death, the need to be reassured, etc.... He has not proved scientifically this hypothesis yet,But he works on it seriously in laboratory.

Somebody who is pragmatic will be interested much more in the science without making him a blind confidence (opposite drift in the ethics are possible in the future). Even the birth of the man can be scientifically explicable. "The curious truth", freed from the religious constraints will like theories as panspermie (earth fertilized Link from the outside, to see here >).

During the experiences of imminent deaths (or NDE for Near death experience), witnesses speak about a frequent vision "of a white tunnel" during the brain death. This vision is often got back in purposes of religious proselytism, but it can simply be understandable by the liberation of a chemical substance (endorphins). This last substance is automatically freed when the brain faces a situation Link of stress. (To know more about it, read here >).

Félix Baumgartner, one of the pioneers of the humanity?

Finally, to enclose this article, I wanted to greet Félix Baumgartner for his jump on more than 38000 meters in height. People as Baumgartner, somewhere, make move back the obscurantism while pushing away the limits of the human being. They can be also seen as pioneers who advance the humanity, and will certainly allow, one day, to save the human race, even if some despondent spirits will always find that it is about a useless wasting of money or of time.
