as in your "A better criterion distinguishing religion and science is which works better? Which makes predictions that are reliable?"

are predictions enough?

and i don't consider religion or science superior to the other; more like different ways of looking at the same things. and i think BOTH camps know the symbiosis deep down or else they wouldn't take issue one with another.

agree, religion without a single relationship is useless and empty. that is what some people have, a series of rituals that keep them in a comfort zone rather than allow themselves to be edified or motivated more to be brave and seek.

what is your definition of 'religion'? was just thinking that it is quite an ambiguous term, even if used by a person who considers him/herself 'religious'. what do they mean when they say that? i don't call mySELF 'religious'. my 'relationship' is personal, and i suppose if someone knows me well enough to think my actions are a result of it, that's one thing. another person would just figure i was being me. i don't know.
