    Teaching someone science is not in any stretch of the imagination indoctrination. But that you think so is very scary.

    That makes no sense. You appear to be attempting to make science into a religion.

    Hmm? i don't see how you came to that conclusion, but for the record no that is not my intent. I would rather science be less dogmatic on some subjects and religion to do what it does, without dogma too of course.

    Dogma is what religion is. By using the term "dogma," you imply religion.

    Ok.


    But it is not dogmatic to begin with.

    Your reasoning is beyond reproach though others may come to a different conclusion.

    Now we understand each other. Look my question doesn't have anything to do with religion, just how science has some features as religion of dogma. But I have to go anyway. Good night.
