Originally when i started working on vintologi i put it in the "religion" category since at time it was not based on good evidence. Over time however vintologi has become more scientific and categorizing it as a religion is becoming increasingly misleading.

We need a category for belief systems not (yet) based on good evidence but that also have not yet been falsified, these may give ansers to typics usually covered by religion. For example we can try coming up with a scientific theory for consciousness, we can come up with theories about what happened before the big bang (if anything) and we can come up with theories about what will happen to our universe.

We can also come up with theories on what life will look like on other planets and make up all kinds of stories regarding that world.
