Science VS Religion

Science and religion offer explanations for the workings of the universe. People have no doubt argued for or against the superiority of one or the other approach for a long time. Here I present my take on the matter.

Scientific method cannot be used to argue the validity of scientific method without circularly appealing apriori to its own validity.

And in any case most religions are apriori unmovable by the force of reason as a consequence of their own construction.

Either of these statements can be used to argue that the debate is dead in the water before it begins, yet more fundamentally:

Without using a consistent axiomatic mathematical framework within which to argue, the game is nothing but rhetoric: since there exist no axioms of ultimate truth ``written into the stars by God'' the statements of the arguers are not axiomatically reducable and are therefore ultimately empty.
