Anyone believe that science has become a religion for some? Anyone believe that science and reason has replaced God for some?
Just curious as to how many really believe this. I don't. But I go to LU and they are trying to teach this to me in my humanities class. This is one of those times I wish I was taking real classes instead of online ones so I could question the professor but oh well.

I think people can make a "religion" out of, or worship anything. I find it hard to conceptualize the idea of science as a religion. Science is the pursuit of knowledge, fact, & truth. So, I could maybe see how for an individual scientist, "science" is that persons"religion" but, on the whole no, I do not see science itself as a relgion unless someone is altering it/ or thier relationship to it. I don't think for the most part science has replaced God. I think, especially for those who don't believe in God (& even for those that do) science answers, or at least attempts to answer questions that religion may not address or give satisfactory answers for. Idk, though, JMO.
