The great thing about science is that it's true whether you believe it or not.

great thing about religion, is even if its wrong you're never going to know.. so why the **** not believe in something? if a divine creator DID exist then it obviously gave us the intellect that was required to learn science.. considering its an omnipotent being, whose to say it didnt know exactly how things worked on a molecular level? nothing science has discovered has disproved anything of the sort

Leaving your beliefs in science is just like having faith in a religion. Information is both lectured in classes and written in books and we are expected to blindly accept the given info as the truth. But what does it mean for something to be true? Truth is only what you set out to prove for yourself that something is true.

But the science we know could be wrong...

Of course. If sufficient evidence exists to prove it wrong, then it can be considered wrong. And then we'll have to change the textbooks.
"believing in" science isn't accepting the theories without question, it's believing in empirical evidence.
I'm not an atheist either. Science and religion aren't mutually exclusive.

I'm just saying, science is no absolute truth either.

No, of course it isn't. Science is a collection of theories that have sufficient evidence to be considered our best understanding of how the world works. At any moment we could come across better evidence and have to throw away all of that in favor of the more probable theory.
Like how we've rejected the "plum-pudding" model of the atom.

And, of course, there are things that we just have NO IDEA about. Like, dark matter and dark energy. Science knows next to nothing about these phenomena and can't explain them... yet.
It's kind of exciting, really.
