How could science be reductionist? Science is the art of making 
hypotheses enough clear so as to make them doubtable and eventually 

No scientist will ever say there is a primitive physical universe or an 
ultimate God, or anything like that. All theories are hypothetical, 
including "grandmother's one when asserting that the sun will rise 
tomorrow. The roots of our confidence in such or such theories are 
complex matter.

Don't confuse science with the human approximation of it. Something 
quite interesting per se, also, but which develops itself.
Lobian approximations of it are also rich of surprise, about "oneself".

"Science" or better, the scientific attitude, invites us to listen to 
what the machine can say and dream of, nowadays. How could such an 
invitation be reductionist?

I would say science is modesty. It is what makes faith necessary and 

With comp, when science or reason grows polynomially (in a trip from G 
to G* for example), then faith "has to" grow super-exponentially.
