Are phones capable of reading my emotions? Is my mind a computer or a machine? Are words a person’s thoughts? Will the universe be all like me? Is there actually a god? Is life itself a computer program, an “immortal, intelligent being,” or is it an illusion? And just what is existence anyway, and what are we doing talking about it, all of us? In the midst of this metaphysical and existential flux, there is also a new science which is developing in a highly technological manner, and with a distinctly Christian message, to take on the role of a religion and a philosophy. In this way, one might also say that many aspects of the scientific, technological, and personal progress of the world are becoming intimately related and related to our religious aspirations. It is becoming harder and harder to separate the scientific development of society from, and ultimately from, religion.
And, perhaps more radically, it is becoming harder and harder to separate religion from science. Perhaps the world must be put into the perspective of the scientific method itself: the process of observation and experimentation; not simply the outcome.

If we put these two things together with the other parts of religion and philosophy, we arrive at the idea of science, but then it gets even more frightening and frighteningly real.
The religious, philosophical, and scientific progress of the modern age is one of scientific discovery, invention, and knowledge. In other words, scientific progress is a process of discovering new knowledge, and so the religious, philosophical, and scientific progress of today is in fact part of an exponential scientific development, a growth curve in which we will eventually surpass the religious, philosophical, and scientific progress of the Middle Ages, by the year 2015 to be precise. This is indeed a religious, philosophical, and scientific reality.
A World-Class Religion?
If science, technology, and technology are part of the history of our civilization, then science is a religion too. Science is a religion because scientific knowledge is the most complete and reliable knowledge; knowledge of which, in the long run, no religion can be complete or trustworthy without knowledge of the truth. The scientific method is the most reliable, the most successful, and the most useful means of knowing the truth. But science does not exist in a vacuum. At every moment in our history, religions try to live, to breathe, and live as best as they can for their time and for
