It's simply the application of observation and experimentation to better understand the world. A caveman finding a round rock, and noticing that the round rock rolls down the hill better than a square pointy rock, would be considered science. So yes, I'm certain we could find some aspect of Heliopolitan religion that would be considered "Scientific".
I completely understand what it means, and I believe I understand what you think it means. I don't think you understand my criticism of what you purport it means. You've turned "science" into something so overly broad to the point to where it has seemingly lost all substantive meaning.
I'm not "anti-science."
We're just going to have to disagree on this.
