Excerpt from Religion of Science

The work of The Open Court Publishing Company, appears to be of purely theoretical importance, but it pursues, nevertheless, an eminently practical aim, which, briefly expressed, is to propound, develop, and establish the Religion of Science.

The present booklet aims to sketch the isagogics of the Religion of Science, intending to serve as an introduction to it, to prevent misconceptions, and to impart general information concerning its principles and scope.

In order to establish the Religion of Science it is by no means necessary to abolish the old religions, but only to purify them and develop their higher possibilities, so that their mythologies shall be changed into strictly scientific conceptions. It is intended to preserve of the old religions all that is true and good, but to purify their faith by rejecting superstitions and irrational elements, and to discard, unrelentingly, their errors.

The churches of to-day still pursue a policy which closes their doors to those who dare to think for themselves. Thus, the scientist and the philosopher will most likely shake their heads at the idea of broadening the established religions and developing them into the Religion of Science, where our religious views are based upon that one revelation alone which is found in nature, and which will stand upon scientifically provable truth. But the undertaking is not quite as hopeless as it at first appears.
