Sri Aurobindo's knowledge of Christian theology was rudimentary

In 1989, British Roy, a retired police sergeant and school welfare officer, visited Auroville after the demise of his wife and was approached by Andre Tardeil, who at the time was setting up extended vocal training at New Creation for village youth and needed someone to coordinate the educational efforts there. Half a year later Roy returned and started the long way towards funding and establishing New Creation Bilingual School, now the well running CBSE-accredited Aikiyam School. Further details can be found here.
In the evening of February 29th, Roy (Alistair Wicks) of New Creation passed away in his UK home in the presence of his daughter and son, due to failure of kidneys. He was 92 years old.
Thank you, Roy, for the enormous work you have done for Auroville; you will be remembered with love and gratitude by numerous youth from the village who have found a solid place in society, thanks to you. Our love and sympathy go out to Roy’s son and daughter, and his many adopted pupils here, in particular Tixon and Vanitha, who now run Malarchi.
AVI UK also helps to support the work of Auroville by raising funds for projects in and around Auroville. AVI UK publishes a newsletter for its members twice a year. Download the Newsletter latest issue, No 40, March 2015 or visit the Newsletter Page for back issues.

Thus, why engaging in philosophical thought, if you care for a given religion? Why entering a field in which you will loose anyway, since sooner or later a new development in, say, physics or neurosciences will show that you are at least partly wrong?
