Science is already a god to many atheists who dont understand science.

ANd, don't forget the link of the source in which you copied and pasted the material.

Funny, how you actually rarely ever say anything, but your copy/paste skills are extraordinary.

So theology, which is useless, won't shut up even when it's wrong, and encourages people not to question the demonstrably false, wishes to criticise science, which only speaks on what it has tested, is far from useless, and encourages people to test everything?

And that is how atheism can become a new religion with science as its god.
And today we've learned that Bronto:
i) thinks atheism isn't presently a religion; and
ii) who already worships a god that does nothing and doesn't even speak, condemns anyone in future, for doing as he does today. :p

Science is already a god to many atheists who dont understand science.

You don't understand science, don't understand atheists, don't understand what worship entails and don't understand what a god is.

Spectacular success then.
