Controlling the world
It is often argued that science and religion are enemies, because both seek the truth, yet each finds a different truth.
The fact is that science and religion are allies. Science is interested above all in power. Religion is interested above all in order. Together, they are a winning team.
Science is a very expensive affair, and it has managed to achieve wonders thanks only to the willingness of governments and businesses to channel billions into research and development. Governments and businesses have funded science not out of pure curiosity, but because they believe it can help them gain more power and attain some cherished goals. And who sets these goals? Not science – but religions and ideologies.
Our religious and ideological beliefs are the ultimate source of funding for science, and in return, they get to shape the scientific agenda and to determine what to do with the resulting discoveries.
