Nobody "believes" in science. The entire point of logically describing and
explaining the world via the means of science is to get as close to "the
truth" as you can. Accepting the results of scientists is unlike religion
not a matter of absolute truth. It is a matter of realizing that for every
given time the scientific answer accepted by the community is the closest
one to "the truth" that we have. Understanding this is key to having a
stable worldview while still being open-minded. The entire point of science
is to constantly question the validity of your theories.
