Religious cult as lab experiment?

19 10 2007

Emile Durkheim in Les formes elementaires de la vie religieuse, Conclusion, said:

” …we so claim that religious beliefs have their fundaments in a specific experience whose demonstrative value is not less than that one of lab experiments…”

I also started considering the other way around, that from a lab experiment could emerge a kind of religious feeling. 

My idea of considering scientific experiment as a kind of liturgy is supported by Durkheim, I found out.

I may video record a lab experiment and a mess, like cristian one, and try to underline the common features they have.
