In his multiple writings, Aramesh Doostdar asserts that religious culture is in contrast with thinking. In his view, religious insight of believers is full of evidences and certainties. In addition, sense of duty against God, captures the mind of believers so their thought is not free. Doostdar thinks that western human has progressed because he has released his thought from the chain of religion so he could overcome the nature and the problems of life. Eastern human's effort for development is bootless unless he learn the way of thinking from western human. Thus to rise of progress, effect of religious culture must disappears from the mind of eastern human like western human did. This article views this argument with a critical perspective and elucidates its violation according to historical facts. Study of effect of eastern philosophy and science on western thought and review of some western scientists opinion about importance of Islamic sciences and its impact on formation of the new world, is some of the critics on Doostdar's view.
