Science should always be expressed in terms of probability and never absolute certainty, amirite?

Science is an explanation of life. Religion is nothing more than really bad science.

Religion isn't really anything like science... So it can't really be a bad version of it. Sure, they're both trying to explain the same things but that doesn't make religion bad science.

Actually it is. People just think its not because they tend to conflict. Religion is just a theory of the world told in story form that had some morals to tag along.

Can you give me a reason why it's seperate? What separates them?

Religion doesn't look at anything and try to figure it out. It's just some set stories that will never change. Science is experiments and actual observations

Which is what makes it bad science. It's untested and can't be tested which makes it bad science. But all ideas trying to explain how something works is Science.

Is analyzing a book and the author's intentions science?

I think we are look at this differently. you're looking at religion as a practice. I'm looking at it as the bible (or other religious books) being ancient science.

By that logic, you could call science "bad religion". Religion has never been the same thing as science. It's like saying that jelly is "bad peanutbutter". Yeah they both have purposes that are pretty close, but that doesn't make them the same.

But they're both food. Just different branches of food. Religion is just another branch of Science and a bad one at that.

Then by that logic why is religion bad science and not science bad religion?

Because good science is unbiased.

No science is unbiased. Every science relies on preset rules, such as newton's laws. Rendering it biased.

Being biased to reality in not biased at all. It's factual. The universe is not required to be in perfect harmony with human ambition. If you ignore some of the facts then you are being biased to produce likeable results.

Ahaha and now we see your flaw. "It's not bias if I agree with it."
There are no facts in this world. Almost everything we thought was a "fact" 200 years ago is laughable now.

And it was never tested. Thus "Bad Science"

that may lead laypeople to come to the wrong impression though, a lot of people have a very poor understanding of probability.
Mathematics on the other hand can be given absolute certainty, Euclid's "The Elements" was written thousands of years ago and is still perfectly relevent today.
