The insufficient belief that true objectivity is accessible to creaturely perception.
A diverting passtime and a device of great utility, but not a self-contained means of reaching final truth.

A subset of metaphysics, which is in turn a subset of philosophy.
Philosophy is the question, revelation is its answer.

Thus, Science is only an element of a much larger dialog; it is not a self fulfilling statement, as the common understanding posits.
Mythopoeic thought
Scientific thought
...I wonder what's coming next?

"Science has failed our world
Potent element of human existence
Letting the reigns go to the unfolding
Is faith..."

"I don't get it man...it's too much science."

New age religion fervently worshipped by atheists. Science is the messiah, beset on all sides by unbelievers who threaten to undermine it's entire existence. In short, science is being crucified. The second coming of the science messiah will visit perfection and worldly paradise here on earth. Global climate cataclysm will be reversed at the same time as developing an infinite energy source to support unending economic growth, we will cure cancer, bio-engineer life forms to do our bidding, the purpose of the universe will be explained and computers will solve the halting problem in a few CPU cycles.
"Motion is governed by newtons laws. It's a fact of science."

"Statements in religious texts are hypotheses. Science should use theory and experimentation to falsify or corroborate them."

a religion that is in it's early stages that supports many of the dubious conclusions of the Judaeo Christian society in which it is practiced, such as the doctrine of original sin (genetics), the possibility of obtaining an absolute truth, the removal of the merchants from the temple (coming soon to a cinema near you) etc.
It's bible is in an incomprehensible language and is not widely distributed as printing hasn't yet been invented.
Is often used to limit freedom of choice but in the correct hands can be a good thing.
discuss stem cell research as a science.

A unique type of Religion.

Originally, science was the systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation.

However, nowadays, it's filled with mindless follower sheep - just like all religions, however many science sheep are often "hardcore atheists" who look down on other religions, but on the other side of the note, often don't understand science.

I am a proud Agnostic who is open to the concept of religion, but not entirely convinced, before someone thinks I'm some Christian preacher.
Theist: I love God, he's amazing, he helped me with my life.

Science sheep/atheist: hahahah. you're a mindless, religious person who believes in god. Adam and Eve never started the world, you idiot.
An explosion called the Big Bang did!

Theist: Oh, really? What caused that explosion, then, seeing as you're a scientific expert and all?

Science sheep/atheist: Uhm.............. *walks away*

A religion which elevates state ran education institutions to GOD status.

This effectively destroys individuality and one's ability to question authority.

Your very attempts to dissent are orchestrated by and controlled by the state and directed towards their goals.
Faith is the catalyst of science.
