McCain and Segal capture the difference between science-based and dogma-based belief systems as follows:

"One way of contrasting science and dogma is to say that a scientist accepts facts as a given and belief systems as tentative, whereas a dogmatist accepts the belief systems as given; facts are irrelevant." [1]
