Is Belief in God a (Scientific) Hypothesis?

Abstract [en]

Beliefs are acquired, revised or rejected in both science and religion. In science this primarily occurs when scientists propose hypotheses, test them against available evidence, and then come to a verdict about which one among the rival hypotheses is best justified. The question I want to address in this essay is whether we should proceed in the same way in religion – either because this is actually the way things are done already, or because it is the way things should be done, no matter what the current practice is.
