Title

REPRESENTATION OF RELIGION IN KURT VONNEGUT’S “CAT’S CRADLE”

Abstract

Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cats Cradle” discusses man’s endless effort to convince himself that he understands his existence and life. The essence of both the game and the novel is that man’s search to find purpose and knowledge of his existence is all foma – meaningless lies. contrasts two human concepts, religion, and science, to determine their significance to the world and humanity. Vonnegut describes science as a means of unraveling the truth, and religion as a construct built on lies and deception for the greater good. The thought that science is a tool that is misused by humanity for financial gains and the destruction of the universe, while religion is the pursuit of meaning in life from the lies it has created. This paper attempts to identify the role of religion in a world dominated by science and its discoveries and answers the question how religion could find a place in science.
