No its not. People don't believe in religion anymore. They are all breaking their own religions rules. But honestly, science: theres no point when you could literally just say"because God wanted to". God has done all this and people are studying why. Like seriously!? But anyways science is not a religion.
Science IN MY OPINION cannot be religion because religion dictates that you follow a certain set of rules. To devote your life in the belief and have complete and total faith in something that you truly believe is true. The belief in religion is unchangeable. To try and change something in religion has brought forth the worst wars in human history.
Science is about progress. Where being wrong is encouraged to bring forth new knowledge. The embrace of mistakes and learning from them. Producing new facts, realizations and improvements towards a better future. Yes, it also brings bad things to the worlds such as deadly weapons and such. But science to its credit, has brought us all what we have today.
Science is open to change. Religion isn't and won't ever do so. That's the big differential factor in my opinion.
No, it is not a religion in any way. It's not based on faith and tradition. If a scientific idea is proved false, they give it up, they don't try to incorporate it into the new discovery. Science is looking for the truth in nature.
A religion is a set of beliefs about or organized worship of a deity. It is a supernatural concept based on "faith", not evidence.
Science is the methodological study of the natural world. It only deals with that which is objective, verifiable, testable, and falsifiable. This is the opposite of religion. It's conclusions are always backed up by solid, peer reviewed evidence, and open to re-interpretation if new evidence arises- again, the opposite of religion.
It's as old as awareness, people have been asking how, and why, since the beginning. Man invented gods to explain the unexplainable, and people being ignorant, due to lack of education, accepted the idea. The free thinkers were punished for their ideas of alternative explanations. And for thousands of years, would be scientists were silenced. A group of people believing in a certain thing could be called a religion of sorts, it doesn't have to be a belief in a God, or Gods. Einstein, considered himself a religious man, although he did not believe in a personal god, but a non caring,non judge mental , non interfering god, more like god is all of us, god is nature and everything it contains. Spinoza's God, with the 1st cause being information , which always existed. Because nothing can exist, without the information that allows it. Even a creator must be preceded by information. This applies to singularities, big bangs, universes , and life itself.
No, not at all. Religion includes a set of beliefs, principles, and morals. Usually has something to do with the supernatural - which by definition, completely contradicts science, which only concerns the NATURAL (i.e. real) world. Science teaches us HOW the natural universe works but it doesn't give us humans orders on how to live. Evolution is the farthest concept from religion there is and it's based completely on facts. Evolution is good for nature, but it makes for a lousy structure for intelligent human beings to base their entire lives around. 'Survival of the fittest' sounds extremely unpleasant (it's like capitalism on steroids) so I'm glad evolution is the farthest possible thing from religion.
No, science is not a new religion. Science has been around since the beginning of time. You can even find it combined in many religious belief systems. Put in simpler terms, science is just the study of the structure and behavior of the physical world. Nothing new.
No. No. No. I think both science and religion requires faith. Theory is not fact. I think that it takes more faith to believe we are here by chance, and not God. Actually the mathematically possibility of us being here by chance is, 1*10 to the 41 thousandth power. A quote from Issac Newton; "He who thinks half - heartedly will not believe in God; but he who really thinks has to believe in God."
When science explains the unknown it becomes scientific fact not religious faith, but science explains the mystical forces religion values. Religion wants you to have faith, science wants you to have facts. Religion dissolves with knowledge only because we don't connect the two subjects. Science doesn't disprove religion but demystifies the unknown.
No, Science is not a new religion. Even though millions of people today strongly believe in God, they know him, trust him, and have a personal relationship with him. They are grateful to science for the deeper insight it has given them into God’s “invisible qualities.” (Romans 1:20) However, they have found their faith deepened even more by studying the book that contains a record of God’s dealings with mankind, the Bible.
