Scientism?

I’m working on a couple longish posts, but in the meantime, I’ll post something that I’m sure the entire science focused part of the blogosphere is putting up, but I think it is especially cogent here.

Science worship? Don't be stupid, you moron!For the full comic, go to Tree Lobsters. The same goes for evolution.

Science (and any scientific theory, for that matter) are tools that help us understand the world around us. You don’t worship science any more than you worship a hammer. Science helps us understand how humans fit into the world, now we interact with nature. It is the “poetry of reality.”
