Philosophy is known to be the investigation of different things based on facts and the way that life actually is. There are times when people may be able to create assumptions based on the facts that they have learned but they will not label things as real “facts” when they are unable to find proof of those facts.

Religion is usually the belief of a higher being that is in charge of monitoring the things that are happening to everyone. The higher being provides opportunities to people but people would still need to decide what they are going to do with those opportunities. There are times when these two do not mix because the “proof” related to religion can sometimes not be backed up by facts.

Religion is a belief in a higher power and the worship and obedience of it, while philosophy challenges the very notion of a supreme being or a higher power. Religions discipline people through a set of rules and codes of conduct. Religion encompasses practices and customs, whereas philosophy is all about metaphysics. Religion also presents rewards and punishments.

An example of this is the unwavering Christian belief that if you follow God, you go to heaven, and if you don't give yourself up to him, you go to hell. On the other hand, philosophy, searches, and questions to arrive at the correct logical conclusions. Religions insist on the performance of rituals. Philosophy is about the realization of the ultimate truth.
