Well the reason why I give the Science vs Science promotors vs Science fans such a hard time is precisely for the same reason Gabe. What you said is true yet not only for religions but for any group with an ideology methodology stories and heroes, leaders and fans. I’ve been witnessing the development of a new religion on the world scene during my lifetime and it’s at a primitive stage but it’s growing. It’s not Science but it’s heroes are. It’s not Reason but it borrows from it. It has its own historical accounts of humanity that are distinct from that of historians and have been getting a greater and greater voice in society. The next generation or two will be an interesting one.
