    Religion is a more specific thing.
    A religion is an organized set of beliefs.

    You could think of a religion being a grouping of pre-established philosophies.

    Science also had an organized set of beliefs.

    Are you talking about axioms? That's a different subject.
    I was not trying to contrast Religion with Science, I was trying to illustrate why Religion isn't a substitute for philosophy, as philosophy is an attribute of religion.

    No, because it sounds vague and complicated.

    I think the truth is simple. I think that the further you go from the truth, the more vague and complicated it gets.

    I think, but I am probable wrong. That knowledge comes from experience, research, thinking and debating.

    A lot of religions want you to be dogmatic.

    I'll allow it


    To be a science, it must first be filtered through the human brain, and must contend with the nets of human philosophy. Therein lies the quandary.

    I don't think she wants to be courted in public. She seems shy. When I'm there it even seems that she is blushing.

    The best part about this post was TS using philosophy to rationalize how science is better than philosophy.

    Boiled down; Philosophy is science(s) of thinking. Exchange science with discipline if you choose.

    There's a reason why so many philosophers were prominent scientists or founded strong science foundations. A long time studying philosophy should net you strong argument skills, internal and external, good eye for bias, so on and so forth.

    It's a discipline(s) that helps with a bunch of intangibles.
