I don't find this very convincing. Science should be seen as a
genuine vocation, a way of serving God by carrying out the human
commission to neighbor & in nature. Of course the scientist who's a Xn
won't "worship" his/her work in the sense in which only God is to be
worshipped. OTOH, understanding that scientific work is a divine
calling may give provide a more solid motivation for it than the purely
secular scientist has.
