Science is Religious!

Over at Duane's mind (one of the blogs we watch) I caught the post: Can Science Disprove God?.

I liked Duane's post that headbutted the very idea, and well done to IMO.

But there's more.

Science depends upon religion. That is, science depends on our initial belief structure, or our 'religion', our religious inclination as to what we think is real and how we understand and respond to what we think is real, and will therefore produce real knowledge.

So Dawkins, whose first belief is a sort of unarticulated and internally contradictory materialism will naturally not find anything outside of his first belief in his take on science. That's not news. What is news is that his first belief will not produce the science he espouses. History has shown us that: it took classic Christian theism to produce a world view that was congenial to the development of modern science. Toss that out and you will eventually toss out the modern science that relies upon it.

Thanks for the HT Eric!

I was just thinking that your last paragraph reminds me of Kuhn's book classic work 'The Structure of Scientific Revolutions', of which I have only had a cursory flick since it arrived in the mail from Amazon last month, and came recommended to me by Andrew Kukilovsky.

I think that will shed more light on the subject also, and am looking forward to the read.

Cheers!
