Abstract On 22 February , Christchurch New Zealand population , experienced a devastating earthquake, causing extensive damage and killing one hundred and eighty-five people.

The earthquake and aftershocks occurred between the and waves of a longitudinal probability sample conducted in New Zealand, enabling us to examine how a natural disaster of this magnitude affected deeply held commitments and global ratings of personal health, depending on earthquake exposure. We first investigated whether the earthquake-affected were more likely to believe in God. Consistent with the Religious Comfort Hypothesis, religious faith increased among the earthquake-affected, despite an overall decline in religious faith elsewhere.

This result offers the first population-level demonstration that secular people turn to religion at times of natural crisis. Three treatises tr. Jacobs, A. Steinhaeuser and W.

Bayeux: Heimdal, Indeed the Granada Television of England GD 8 confirms that many of the ritual activities relating to yam cultivation in were found to be the same as described by Malinowski in The Trobrianders believe that ignoring the magical rites would endanger their agriculture with such problems as blight, drought, floods, pests, and wild animals.

Malinowski argues that holding of magical rites for the well being of their gardens does not however imply that the Trobrianders attribute all success in gardening to magic. He writes, Magic Science and If you were to suggest to a native that he should make his garden mainly by magic and scamp his work, he would simply smile on your simplicity. He knows as well as you do that there are natural conditions and causes, and by his observations he knows that he is able to control these natural forces by mental and physical effort.

His knowledge is limited, no doubt, but as far as it goes it is sound and proof against mysticism. If the fences are broken down, if the seed is destroyed or has been dried or washed away, he will have recourse not to magic, but to work, guided by knowledge or reason. Malinowski concludes that the native knows that despite all hardwork on his part, at one time or the other his crops do also fail. Rain or sun may not appear at the right time, locusts may eat away the crop.

So to control these influences and these only the Trobrianders take recourse to magic. In other words, one can say that the known set of conditions about weather, soil, plants, pests, sowing, weeding and fencing etc. The unknown and unaccountable set of conditions are coped by them with the help of magic. In addition, Malinowski shows that the sphere of work and the sphere of ritual are also set apart from each other. Every magical rite associated with gardening has a specific name.

The time and place of its performance are clearly specified and separated from the scheme of day-to-day operations of gardening. Work is prohibited at the time of a magical performance.

All magical rites are performed in full knowledge of the people and are mostly attended by all members of the public.

Secondly, although the magician who conducts magical ceremonies is also the person who leads all agricultural operations, his two roles are clearly separated. They are not allowed to overlap or interfere with each other. In his role as a leader of agricultural activities, he fixes the date for starting the gardening work. He scolds a lazy or careless gardener. But he does not, at any time, mix this role with that of the magician.

We will now turn to the second example about canoe-building. Its sides are curved and it is usually propelled by hand-driven paddles. In building their canoes the Trobrianders separate the activities relating to work from those relating to magic.

For building a canoe one must have the extensive knowledge of the material and the principles of stability and hydrodynamics science dealing with the motion of water and the forces acting on solid bodies in water. But they also know that doing this would mean less resistance against strain. They can also give the reasons for keeping a certain width in terms of fractions of the length of their canoes.

They are fully aware of the mechanics of boat making and about what one should do in the event of a storm or why one should keep the outrigger always on the weather side. Malinowski 30 tells us that the terminology about sailing, used by the Trobrianders, is as rich and complex as the one used by modem sailors. It has to be so because otherwise they cannot sail under dangerous conditions in their fragile canoes. Just as with the activities related to yam-cultivation, those related to canoebuilding amply demonstrate that the Trobrianders have an extensive knowledge of what is required for successful sailing.

But here again, Malinowski points out, the Trobrianders are still faced with unaccountable conditions of sudden gales and powerful tides.

This is the point at which magic enters the scene. Magical rites are performed at the time of constructing canoes, again at the beginning and during the course of seaexpeditions. Comparing the Trobrianders with modern sailors, Malinowski 30 writes, If the modern seaman, entrenched in science and reason, provided with all sorts of safety appliances, sailing on steel-built steamers, if even he has a singular tendency to superstition which does not rob him of knowledge or reason, nor make him altogether prelogical can we wonder that his savage colleague, under much more precarious conditions, holds fast to the safety and comfort of magic?

You can make out that Malinowski has given recognition to both the rational outlook to ones surroundings and performance of magical rites for controlling the unaccountable and unforeseen forces of nature.

In the essay on magic, science and religion, he goes on to provide further examples of activities related to fishing, warfare, health and death.

In each case he shows that the primitive people make systematic observations and possess systems of logically coherent knowledge. He also mentions the natives ability to draw diagrammatic maps in sand or dust. This indicates that they have the ability to codify knowledge in formulaic form.

For example, they are aware of various seasons, movements of stars, lunar calendar and on that basis they can plan sea-expedition or warfare. They can even draw diagrams to explain their plans. It is now time for us to complete Check Your Progress 2.In this essay he combines the two levels in a simplistic 32 manner and provides answers to questions pertaining to sociological significance of magic, science religion.
