Abstract
Religion and religious practices have existed throughout the human history and persist today in every corner of the world. Explaining religion is a serious problem for any evolutionary account of human thought and society. In most societies religion is a prime motivator of both individual and collective behavior. Most of the people live in the conflict because of their different religions, especially, the plural context of Indonesia. This context may bring conflicts. This article gives the alternative ideology and perspectives to find the universality value of religion. The alternative ideology and perspectives is about the religion evolution. Evolution of the religion is meaningful to bridge the understanding of different religions. Main idea of this concept represents the understanding of their different religion. Discipline of ethology which means “the biology of behavior” has been used to studying religion. Ethology has approached the study of religion by using the theory of evolution by natural selection of Charles Darwin. By using Darwinian Theory it will help them to understand and accept religion that finally it becomes accepted as a science and religion. The ethology is endeavoring to understand one important aspect of religion that deals with religious behavior.
