Hi Luis,

I think you are some smart guy!

"Some folks need religion, and some don't."
Okay, you're right...'n' so 'm I!
IMHO, everyone uses religion...just that some religions are quite worldly and don't mention the names of well-known Deities. Religion is the group mentality on selected issues, which creates a mini-paradigm.
Some who need it don't have it and some who have it don't need it, and trice tersa!

"Science does not work from the assumption that absolute objectivity is possible, and so I think the basis of your objection is misconstrued."

Always trying to catch Mikey misconstruing...but this time...
If Christianity (to pick any religion) is made from what "Christians" have done then
science is what "scientists have done. Many scientists HAVE worked from the assumption that absolute objectivity is possible...unless you are picking an oblique definition of "absolute objectivity."

There's nothing wrong with trying to overturn what I say!

Mikey
