The primary point I am trying to make is that science has superceded scripture in all areas that involve physical processing, which is a very large portion of ancient scripture. As such, science may be considered to be the equivalent of modern scripture. It is giving us the truth about nature, just as ancient scripture did for the people of that day. Unfortunately, ancient scripture still has such a hold on some people that they would prefer to do away with scientific truth.

Regarding doing it from scratch- there are still really big questions that science has not answered and may never answer. I am willing to use all sources of knowledge to home in on what are the most likely answers to such questions. I am motivated in this regard from my own personal experiences which suggest to me that there is a spiritual aspect to human life that goes beyond what we now recognize to be physical. However, I suspect that as we learn more about such aspects, we will find out that it's all just physics anyway, only the physics of particles that we cannot readily detect. So it's all physics. Only much of the physics is beyond human understanding, mainly because we do not have the data, not because it's too complicated.
