It is my religion; always expanding, always discovering, forever wondering.
If anyone else have something to share when it comes to science, please do. ^

NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft has entered a new region between our solar system and interstellar space. Data obtained from Voyager over the last year reveal this new region to be a kind of cosmic purgatory.

Thanks to nuclear technology, those Voyager's has been doing more than ever imagined. Impressive!

I am a science. Well training to be a science. Wasn't ever my dream to be a science but it's respectable and enjoyable- even though I will end up as an urban planning in the long run.

i know this thread is not made for this sort of discussion but science can't be considered a religion..
a prerequisite for religion is blind faith.. and science is void of such drastic leaps

but maybe you meant it in a different way.. like affiliating yourself with the scientific community etc.

anyways

"science is my religion" is like saying:
"religion is scientific"

both of the above are aren't exaggerations but paradoxical statements.. so hopefully you can understand my confusion
anyways no one cares so whatever..

Ok let me put it this way then.
Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.
