After many a debate, I’ve said that I wish I could choose science as my religion.
That’s not to say science belongs in the same category as faith. The good thing about science is that you don’t need to have faith in it; in fact, it wishes you wouldn’t. It demands skepticism. It says, “Please question me. Please argue with me. Please be as credulous as you can. If you find something about me that isn’t right, let everyone know so that we can fix it.” I want science to count as my religion because of the respect religion gets in our culture.
