    1. The author argues that there is no clear scientific proof of God’s non-existence, otherwise it would have been studied at schools. Moreover, many cosmological scientific concepts look as if they had been copied from the Bible. Zhurinskaya points out that currently many quasi-scientific charlatan narratives produced by sects try to construct a synthesis of science and religion. Another problem is that many scientists reject spirituality and do not believe in the existence of the human soul.

      The author suggests that the disregard of the scientific community toward humanities in Russia is caused by the decades long dominance of Marxism over any scientific knowledge. Thus the scientific community is suspicious of any philosophical concept that could potentially influence scientific research. Consequently religion becomes suspicious as well. The author considers this situation to be unjustified. In the end of the 1980s, Soviet society thought that the removal of Marxism as the dominant ideology and philosophy would put things it their natural order. This idea, however, was deeply wrong. According to Zhurinskaya, the harmful effect of Marxism over Russian society continues to this day and only religion can help sort out serious problems in the social and scientific life of the country. Thus, she concludes, the integration of religion into scientific spheres should not be feared.
