Many good points have already been made, so I will just shortly say that science can become "cult-like" when it gathers around certain ideas or leaders.
However there are some aspects of science that are not shared by cults:

- science admits it doesn't know everything, but I've yet to see a cult that doesn't claim to know everything
- science can admit to being wrong, and correct itself, while cults will happily prophesy one apocalypse after another, with a range of bizarre explanations
- hard cash has been committed in the name of science to any psychic or religious guru to demonstrate supernatural powers, and they either refuse to take the challenge, or they have failed.
And they all take cash from their followers, so it's not like they're non-materialistic.

The reason gravity is still a theory is because it cannot be proven and in order for that to be realized. Mankind will have to establish is validity with regards to reality as a whole.

Essentially when mentioned the term "Proof"
in science, especially in relation to such lofty ideals, is questionable.

Only a test of population is proof of anything.

Having said that 125 years ago average life expectancies ran about 48 years old and today it is about 85. 125 years ago many people still believed the earth was flat. While today we are examining a aspect of the cosmic microwave background and observing where it could have made contact with another object.

An object in size similar to the one we reside in and often referred to as the Universe.

Any thoughts?
