WHOA! Talk about parochial. I guess Roger hasn't heard of the
Quran, the Tao, the Eightfold Way, Dianetics, Wicca, the Torah,...
The interesting thing is that wars are fought over divine TRUTHs, be
not over scientific knowledge.
It is the same, as you can see through history. Just that scientific
knowledge impose itself in the shorter run than fundamental knowledge.
Science is just an attitude of modesty, religion is the belief that,
not science, but what science tries to handle, makes sense, and it
motivates (fundamental) research.
Of course humans, and even nature, perverts science and religion all
the time for reason of dishonest selfish special local short term
interests. That's part of life.
