Scientific vs Religious Pyramid

Author: Mohammed Nazari

Scientific advancement is like a pyramid, as we get more advanced, we have less differences.

Imagine different unskilled people, trying to build one exact specific wooden chair.
Unskilled individuals will have a variety of opinions on what type of wood or screws to use, what part to be cut first, and so on. The difference in opinion is simply due to lack of knowledge, eg there are different wood and screws.

Now if you ask different professional carpenters to build that exact same wooden chair, they will have a lot less differences, simply because they know more about what type of wood or screw to use, or what part to cut first.

Conclusion: scientific advancement narrows down the differences.

This rule applies to all scientific circumstances, no exception.

Religious advancement on the other hand is like a upside down pyramid. As we get more advanced we have more differences.

Islam, it all started as one religion, one God, one prophet. However as the religious leaders got more advanced in their idea, they developed more differences. And now we have multiple different versions and increasingly  different interpretations of Islam. eg Taliban or ISIS version to rather moderated or liberal Muslims. No one approving of the other and at times killing each other.
Christianity, Judaism or any other religion are no different.

While we have radical, moderate and liberal religious beliefs, there is no such a thing as radical, moderate or liberal scientific beliefs. .

Conclusion: religious advancement increases the differences.

When using factual reasoning we can "practically" prove the superiority of one method over the other without hurting one another's identity, while when no "practical" proof is required or applicable, superiority of one method to the other is based on a non factual belief and interpretations.

End result:

More scientific and less religious advancement concludes in harmony, while

Less scientific and more religious advancement concludes in chaos, and history is there to prove it.

While variety in food, music and art is great, variety in value system is dangerous.

PS. All successful businesses, countries, organizations and so on, develop and follow one proven structure and value system.

A Personal Journey (Speech)

Author: Mohammed Nazari

Please find the link to the YouTube videos below

Part 1:

                               Part 2:

  •  It is amazing, when you have a big "goal" in mind, most other big "problems" look like small "challenges"       
  • Education in Canada is more practical than in the east which is more theoretical. After all you can find the theory in books or online, without needing to go to school.

Reasons for my failure as an employee:

1. Higher Canadian standards and sensitivity level  

2. My defensive behavior    

  •  Blaming  your behavior or action does not mean blaming you as a person
  • One for all, All for one

3. Inability to be honest with my own feelings  

  • Pride that has no basis, doesn't allow you to be honest.

4.  Canadian are too polite to be honest   

  •  If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything
  • Read between the lines


  •  Knowledge of higher/different Canadian standards and simply following versus questioning them
  •  Longer orientation
  •  Welcoming comments and asking for further explanation versus defending our self
  • Being honest with our feelings and abilities:

o   Acknowledging your weakness is a sign of honesty and makes you stronger.

  • Asking versus commenting:

o   Don't assume, ask question

o   Don't comment, ask question

o   Don't judge, ask question

o   When in doubt, ask question

o   When you think you know, ask questions to clarify

o Comments are not welcome, questions are

ยท         What kind of question?

1. Open ended and unbiased questions

2. Yes-No questions to clarify

When you have a car problem whom you ask for help? your Doctor, mother or mechanic.

Although this question seems silly, we make this mistake all the time, asking a professional question from people outside of that profession and building opinions.

  • Ask questions from the right person(s). The ones with proven success.


You will learn more from the successful people who can show you how to succeed.

Unsuccessful people can show you how not to fail the way they did.

 While the pathways to success are few, there are multiple pathways to fail.

Which one is easier and more effective to learn?

 Uncle Google and my cousin YouTube can help you with any questions.

Starting my own business

  •  In order to have a good society/business, good structure is more important than good people.
  •  The main sources of work/interpersonal problems are: communication and expectations.
  •  Interpersonal skills are not just talking nicely but much more importantly is to follow a structure and    framework, even if it is not the best structure.
  • Having a poor structure is better than having no structure

I would I would recommend that you ask my uncle and cousin, Google and YouTube, about the following:


  • Active listening
  •  Critical thinking
  • Yes-No question
  • Open ended question
  • how to be honest with oneself


After all My success and happiness depends on your success and happiness.

Let us make life better for all of us.
