Science is not a belief

It is contradictory to believe in science, because there is a difference between belief and science.

Science is actually a method that can just dismiss assumptions that aren’t true (ie, falsify them, see Karl Popper), whereas belief instead seeks to verify that assumptions are true.

It means that belief in science contradicts the method of science, instead accepting the method of belief. Belief in science thus actually invalidates science (also as a belief) in the moment it emerges.
