Using science as a dogma is not different from superstition.

That is completely untrue.

It is completely true. I was not talking about scientists.

There is no room for dogma in science. Science tries to reveal the facts through repeatable observation and experimentation. A good scientist always has to know that any rule or scientific law is always open to question and can be overturned when new evidence is revealed. Any person or scientist has a dogmatic attitude toward scientist is a poor one.

In science a theory becomes a law when the evidence becomes so overwhelming that the chance of it being wrong is extremely small but it never reaches the point where it is 100% certain.

Dogma on the other hand requires no overwhelming evidence but instead is accepted as truth based primarily on faith. Religious and political dogma are 2 prominent examples. This puts dogma purely into the realm of opinion.
