I thought it was being replaced with Islam with its own set of myths and superstitions...like Christianity. Science is the pursuit of truth, it only conflicts with religion when religion clings to traditions that are based in faith. Like the earth is only 10 or 12 thousand years old and such things. Science is not in the game to disprove religion, but religion has no love of any truth but their own.
I was referring to religion in this country and the bad science that has become religion. The climate change fake science, fanatical political theory as well as economic grounded on wishful thinking. Faith based but called science. Where is the science of man?
Islam also suffers from a group that believes that the creator of the universe needs them to fulfill his wishes by destroying. Instead they destroy Islam. Where is science? Nowhere.
All the great religions attempt to fill that void and they all enjoin jihad among their followers which is the inner search and struggle to know oneself and overcome the petty desires and impulses that leads to the chaos so prevalent. To become one with divinity.
