Science or Scientism

When Theoretical Commitments Become Religious Beliefs

Currently, religion is regarded as an irrational superstition by unbelievers and as a religion accepted by blind faith by believers. At the root of this attitude is scientism, the ideology that claims that science alone is the only, or at least the utmost rational way to gain knowledge of reality. Everything else is a mere opinion, and expression of emotions. I show that this damaging perspective is false and irrational. There are many ways to know truth, and the truth of Christianity is among them. It is critical that believers and skeptics alike see the foolishness of scientism, and this booklet will help to reader to realize that.
