To, to jest arcydzieło ;)

Masz naprawdę świetne prace.
This could just be my interpretation, but it seems like the man with the gun--Science, if you will--looks almost sad, or at least solemn: "It didn't have to be this way."

Dobra robota...
I'm honestly surprised that this didn't degrade into religion vs atheism argument.

Especially since it seems that the one that decided to not voice any condemning opinions seem to be the religious side.

I LOVE IT... sorta
Religion and Science are so incompatible, and in the end logic and reason will always triumph over mere superstition.

That's my take on the picture, anyways.
Oddly enough, religion isn't superstition -- Without religion we would not have, to any appreciable degree, philosophy or theology.

Likely we would be far less advanced in:
genetics (the first applied genetics-as-a-science was developed by monks),
medicine (Council of Nicea in 325 AD mandated all cathedrals have/be hospitals),
physics (the idea that the universe is knowable & predictable [because the Creator is not arbitrary] was, and is, a Christian idea [goes back further, but let's not quibble]; many of the founders of Physics were deeply religious. Pascal and Newton, both who have units named after them, considered their more important work to be theological and philosophical),
math (being the only "pure science" wherein you can prove or disprove something has always benefited from religion: namely attempts to prove or disprove God's existence),
and arguably
linguistics (given Christianity's mandate to go to all the Earth and preach the gospel to all men has driven a lot of people into learning languages; that also says nothing about other religions trying to convert others to their religion)

Finally, superstition and religion have very dissimilar definitions:
religion
noun
1. a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
2. a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects: the Christian religion; the Buddhist religion.
3. the body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices: a world council of religions.
4. the life or state of a monk, nun, etc.: to enter religion.
5. the practice of religious beliefs; ritual observance of faith.

superstition
noun
1. a belief or notion, not based on reason or knowledge, in or of the ominous significance of a particular thing, circumstance, occurrence, proceeding, or the like.
2. a system or collection of such beliefs.
3. a custom or act based on such a belief.
4. irrational fear of what is unknown or mysterious, especially in connection with religion.
5. any blindly accepted belief or notion.

Thank you so much :) Nice to have a well thought-out response here - my job has been done for me. Honestly, "Death of faith, birth of fact"? Do your research, people :P
