    Some religions may be, that doesn't mean they all are, however.

    How do you relate science to beliefs about the world and reality? Would you 
say
    science the collection of those beliefs, or the method for developing the 
beliefs?


Science is a way to discover the world, nothing is certain, what you believe now may be shown wrong tomorrow... that's not the case with religion...

So if science is the way, the way to what? Where do the beliefs belong?

I would say a more correct definition of religion is a collection if beliefs, regardless of how you got them.

Another attempt to sweep everybody into the religion bin.


Some may rely on dogmas if old books, others on newer books and articles, but either method, science or stake dogmas can provide the basis of one's world view.

Science never provides the final answer, and so to operate in this world we must act in our own private beliefs.

And religion is always ready to provide a final answer, one never to be questioned, because if it's the right answer then it must always have been right.


That is just my take according to my own definitions. You may define religion as dogma and come to different cinclusions.

I take 'religion' to mean what people refer to when they say they belong to a 
religion.
