science as a priesthood

Rough sketch of a rough idea:

As an outgrowth of the Victorian age & their faith in science and technology, today science is seen as a voice of truth, if not the voice of truth, because of its ability to explain our origins etc.

Thus the strong movement in religion to have God somehow explain everything. Only recently have people tried to read the first chapters of Genesis as a literal text.

This is an attempt to return religion to its rightful place, but is rather the wrong method for doing so. Religion cannot beat science in the domain of science, not without perverting it. Religion has another domain.

Which modern society seems to downplay.

Perhaps society is too left-brain? Mcgilchrist.
