9. Kinda sorta.

It has a process for determining the most likely explanation for a given phenomenon. Supernatural explanations are necessarily excluded because there's a height restriction on this ride and they don't meet the bar.

But that's neither here nor there. The point is the superiority of science as a means to understand and make predictions germane to the universe at large has several hundred years of precedent. The inferiority of praying, rolling chicken bones, or standing on one's head for, like, a really long time, has several thousand years of precedent.
