Well, there is one special characteristic of science which people who say it's just another belief system don't seem to know about. That is that the entire purpose of science is to see what lies BEYOND our beliefs and opinions. There has never before been any attempt to do this. And that is all it does. So to say science is just another belief system, another set of opinions, is to not see it at all.

Emma M Wise Yep. Science is not a belief system: it is a method of investigation.

Stan Burfield Exactly! Interesting idea that science is an extension of nature. To me it looks a lot like evolution itself. Basically, in a very simplified form, evolution tries a lot of things and keeps what works (what survives). Science tries a lot of hypotheses and also keeps what works (what survives testing). In this sense, science is the evolution of knowledge of objective reality.

Stan Burfield Vs religions, which start with something and adamantly stick with it no matter what the testing shows. And the longer they stick with it the more adamant they get.
