TIA BS: Science and Religion (434* d) RE: BS: Science and Religion 12 Jun 09

LH says:

"Many people know relatively little about science, yet they have absolute faith in it...that is, in the latest scientific statements and theories they've heard from the media and popular culture around them. They may be almost completely ignorant of what is actually contained in those theories...and those theories may yet turn out to be utterly wrong...and yet they have absolute faith in it merely because it came authoritatively, through the media, from the world of science."

LH is quite correct. These people absolutely do exist. But they are absolutely not doing science. Furthermore, the existence of persons having uninformed faith in the products of science does not at all imply that science itself relies in any way upon faith. In fact the method of science involves the destruction (by experimentation and measurement) of articles of faith (hypotheses).
