Why Science Is Not Religion

Science is based on doubt.

Religion is based on faith.

Prompted by the discussion at The Volokh Conspiracy.

Then there is scientism which amounts to faith in science. We know scientism is not a scientific position, because science never knows anything. All science can say is "this is the best answer we have so far".

You should take a look at Paul Tillich for his understanding as Doubt as a VITAL component of Faith!
