Science vs relegion? Science as relegion?
“Science at its best is an open-minded method of inquiry, not a belief system.”
“Bad religion is arrogant, self-righteous, dogmatic and intolerant. And so is bad science. But unlike religious fundamentalists, scientific fundamentalists do not realize that their opinions are based on faith. They think they know the truth.”
“In both religion and science, some people are dishonest, exploitative, incompetent and exhibit other human failings.”
“For more than 200 years, materialists have promised that science will eventually explain everything in terms of physics and chemistry. Believers are sustained by the faith that scientific discoveries will justify their beliefs.”
“The sciences are being held back by assumptions that have hardened into dogmas, maintained by powerful taboos. I believe that the sciences will be regenerated when they are set free.””Most of nature is inherently chaotic. It’s not rigidly determined in the old sense. It’s not rigidly predictable.””I think that the ‘laws of nature’ are also prone to evolve; I think they are more like habits than laws.”
