    I get that there is an almost religious dogmatism in some parts of science, and if that is the aspect you are referring to, then I don’t disagree, but your statements without context come across as a religious person who begrudgingly accepts that science can be right about certain things but view the whole thing with perhaps an unreasonable skepticism. I’m not saying you actually do, but that’s how those comments come off wtihout additional context.

    Someone saying “I believe in science.” could mean that they blindly believe whatever someone in a white coat says, but could also mean they believe that the scientific method is the ultimate tool of truth discovery, or someone who believes that science, collectively, is able to eventually root out incorrect information via reproducible studies. It’s an ambiguous saying.
