I was just pondering the above question when you hear people accusing non believers of having science as their religion. A patently ridiculous notion but I think it would be amusing to list our gods (heroes) and how the list is constantly growing or being eliminated as we learn more.
And is there a single book or even one pure science example?
So many heroes that we could be accused of worshipping or should that be honouring?
Aristotle,Socrates,Newton,Dawkins, Darwin, Hiitchens, Leakey,Tobias, Hawking,Einstein,Copernicus,Galileo, Curie,Higgs,Sagan, etc, etc, etc
This doesn't even come close to scratching the surface in my very un-educated reading and understanding.
I think it does however illustrate fully the ridiculous notion that religion is a science.
Each of the great minds above is being built upon all the time and quite often refuted completely as we discover more.
Compare that to Christianity or Islam whichare based on one book which is supposedly irrefutable.
I think that this is quite an amusing response to anybody who does suggest that religion is a science. What do you guys think?
