EAST AND WEST, WHERE IS THE BOUNDARY?
That the Christian religious tradition is not necessarily scientific or rational is well known to everyone. The ongoing battle between science and religion, or church and state in the West, cannot be missed by any thoughtful person. The rejection of the authority of the Church was necessary for the development of science in the first place. 

Many Western religious groups today still promote a literal Biblical idea of creation that the world is only six thousand year old, which is a total denial of the evidence of science. On the other hand, the Hindu and Buddhist account of the origin of the universe, with multi-billion year cycles of creation and destruction, is much more in harmony with modern science, though these Eastern religions were not originally looked to as anything rational by the Western mind.

The Western scientific background  moreover originates from the pre-Christian Greeks. Yet in terms of religion the ancient Greeks-as all the pre-Christian peoples of Europe-had a religion like the oriental or the Hindu and were Pagans.
