My thinking has never changed I just got better at it.
My reality never changed I just became more observant of it's ways.
I can test the scientific principles that govern our reality, we all can. A so called scientist could tell me that grass feeds on electricity and all
other foliage on earth is primarily green because they feed on these "electrophytes" that decomposed grass gives off. Therefore grass is the key to
all life, because without grass, all land based ecosystems would collapse.
I'd then tell him/her that they are trying to feed me verbal poo, or I could show them the science behind photosynthesis. Fossil records and good
science that shows that this thesis is utter bollocks
People willing to believe anything seldom ever do any critical thinking.
As for religions? I don't see how science has discredited them at all. It isn't the job of scientists to discredit religion, any scientist doing so
probably has a bitter experience in the past with religion, maybe they are just malicious?
The job of science is to test, test then test some more, most of the time good science is about declaring the obvious in a very slow and painful way.
You call it an age of disbelief, I call it the end of the age of sacredness. Because nothing is sacred anymore, not even God.
God cannot be shown to not exist anymore than I can definitively prove I exist. I cannot leave my box, I can't get into the other... Illusions don't
make you delusional, you just didn't witness it in the wider context.
So with that all said, keep testing, keep observing and keep learning, on whatever side of the aisle you find yourself on.
Oh and don't preach your "gospel" as if your understanding has ascended you into a greater being than another, we're all still human last I checked
