Abstract
A recent incident has made religious scholars raise embarrassing questions: What should we say of OM Shinlikyo, especially its distinctive intention and concrete actions to kill unidentified public indiscriminately? Which theoy can we rely on, among those of the major stream of science of religion, for our judgment on such an urgent and real issue? To our best knowledge, it is almost impossible to find any particular theory or academic achievements that can be applied to our judgment on such a gloomy crime committed in the name of religion. Some would argue that academism is supposed to be value free and beyond such a practical application. However, it is also true that a sound system of knowledge is supposed to furnish certain theoretical devices by which sound judgments can be made on such undeniably destructive events.
