    Check it out on

    What is the difference between science and religion
    anyway? I might be discovering warm water all over
    again, but both seem to be based on a set of rules of
    perception that can not be proved within that set, and
    both have a tendency to be exclusive of each other as
    much as different religions are exclusive of each
    other...When I am asking what is the difference, I was
    asking about the structural ones; obviously science
    gives us quite a bit more useful tools and toys then
    religions usualy do...;)
