Another way to see the religious bias in present-day science (see previous post) is to look at the way it is used to attack Islam. (Note: specifically science vs Islam, not science vs “religion”.) See my paper on “Islam and Science” Indian Journal of Secularism, 15(2), 2011, pp. 14-29.
For example, consider the claim that Islam is anti-science because it does not believe in “laws of nature” or “laws of physics”. As my paper explains, belief in “laws of nature” is part of the post-Crusade theology of Aquinas; it is no part of science. Newton himself believed that theology and thought that he was a prophet to whom God had revealed those laws. (He also thought he was born on 25 December.) So, here we have a simple situation where science is pro-church but anti-Islam (as in Hawking’s singularities which support the church doctrine of creation against Islam).
It is true that people are still taught “Newton’s laws of physics” in school. But that is bad terminology which spreads church indoctrination. Because colonial education blindly imitates the West, this propaganda is still propagated through science teaching in schools which should have changed that long ago. Newton’s “laws” have proved to be false, and science cannot ever lay claim to any eternal truth. Science only constructs fallible models.
