And I'm convinced that the infamous "faith without works is dead" is actually a deliberate reversal of a "works without faith are dead" slogan (hinted at in Hebrews), which actually makes more sense as a spirit/body metaphor.

I have to agree the way we have been controlled and Science pretends to be the answers to everything when reality is it probably only showcases 5% of what the universe is all about.
One day they claim you need two doses of Covid19 vaccine to be fully protected and the other one claim the complete opposite when it fits their agenda. "Science" they say.

Religion has been a double edged sword; abused by authoritarians and utilized for good by humanitarians. Too often used as justification for killing and enslaving others and just as often bringing unity, peace and a social order to it's adherents. Much of our greatest art, music and architecture owes it's existence to religious motivation. Even the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are based on biblical principles.
What we are seeing today is the abandonment of religion as rules for social cohesion which is why there is little to no resistance to tyranny and a blind acceptance of scientism as an explanation for the mysterious.
