On science and religion

Undertaking an exercise of representation at micro-, and macro-physical levels, where n-dimensional string theory (n > 10) turns everything into swarming energies, makes one think of the day modern science will be looked on very much the same way religion is today.

Hasn't religion held predictive and explanatory powers? Haven't religion's metaphors piled on top of each other, giving way to newer and more faithful representations meant to rescue religion from increasing contradictions? Not unlike science, where, for example, swarming energies came on top of swarming probabilities.

What a bemusing scene would make for the contemporary scientist to see some citizen of the 3-rd millennium looking back on our science...
