    Religion claims it is not a science. However it tries to explain the same phenomenom as science does. And therefore it must be a science. However it repeatedly gets the answer wrong so religion is just bad science.
    I would call it a pseudo science at best. an Art is probably a more accurate description.
    To get the answer for the way the world and universe works we can't look at religion as it is just a load of ****.

    Religion is a science in what this is the only part of it:

    God is omnipotent.

    But God uses science right? Or the knowledge. So science isn't a belief it is a tool of religion. Rather a tool to live.

    occam's razor.

    "the simplest explanation is usually the correct one"
    Perhaps the best tool to determining the truth.

    Look at variation of species
    Is it more likely that an all powerful being that we can't observe created the entire universe and each individual species and variety. and then planted false fossils to test our faith.
    Or evolution a neat scientific theory that shows howvariation can occur.

    Also Darwins theory can be tested and observed. God can not.

    Religion doesnt work.

    So because it attempts to explain the same phenomena as science, it is a science? That doesn't make sense to me.

    Also, as a side note, getting something repeatedly wrong doesn't make a field pseudoscience. Bad methodology and general nonsense makes a field pseudoscience.
    Whence comes this logic: no evidence = false?
