Science is the wrench and Philosophy is the piano. You can't play beautiful music on a wrench and you can't play a piano that's out of tune. The narrower tool serves the greater tool. The wrench tunes the piano.
When people try to turn science into a philosophy of life, they are trying to play music on a wrench. I explain this in a heated debate on Facebook ...
To recognize purpose in the universe is good philosophy, but bad science - for science can not measure purpose - and science can only deal with things that can be measured.
This is why Materialistic Darwinism is poisonous; it's philosophy masquerading as science.So is Intellectual Design.Darwinism denies God; ID affirms God - but both get in the way of science.
Both, in other words, are trying to play a sonata on a wrench.
