Technology or Religion: Annual Debate at SJRS, Kondadaba
By Br M.H. Wilson (Archdiocese of Hyderabad)
Hyderabad, Dec. 15. Technology and Religion, both are needed and a greater complementarity is to be ensured for a better living. This was perhaps the winning argument (or proposal) of the Annual Debate held at St. John`s Regional Seminary, Kondadaba on December 14, 2010. The College witnessed a lively volley of arguments to and from peppered by few triggers by Fr. Anthony Puthussery, the Moderator, on the theme `Technology and Religion are Complementary`.
The eight speakers of the day, representing a growth group each were well prepared with their talks and set in motion the arguments during the 50 minutes floor discussion. The presence of Fr. Anthony as the Moderator proved to be a great help in directing the flow of the debate. He rightly clarified terms, rephrased questions, tickled deeper reflection, and offered valuable insights all along. Though the focus of the discussion stayed mostly on the technological front, the validity of the arguments could not be denied.

The strongest argument of the team against the motion was that God was being replaced by modern advanced technology and that technology is a greater distraction than aid in evangelization. Those for the motion strongly argued that Technology and Religion have a common origin, goal and their difference in the method of reaching the goal, only endorses the complementarity.

Fr. Rinoy Joseph, in his concluding remarks pointed out that in and through the whole procedure there were more proposals than opponents. He complimented the students for taking an active part and encouraged them to continue reading, reflecting and challenging one another in line with the theme of the debate.

Prof. Ratnasekhar and Br. Vincent Castilino were the judges - the team which argued against the motion were eventually declared winners. Fr. Wilson Jose, the Principal was the main brain, hands and legs behind the whole programme, with a little help from the Rainbow Group.
