5 Myths about Science

Myth #1: Science gives us more certain knowledge than philosophy or theology.
Myth #2: It is never rational to go against the views of the overwhelming percentage of experts in an area of science.
Myth #3: The success of science shows that other fields like philosophy and theology do not provide us with knowledge of reality.
Myth #4: The advances in neuroscience have shown that consciousness is merely physical states in the brain and that there is no need to postulate a spooky thing like a soul.
Myth #5: The church doesn’t need to teach parishioners about science; its job is to focus on the spiritual and moral lives of people.
