This paper and concomitant presentation begin with a brief discussion of the past, the present and the potential of the paradigm of science. Upfront are a few assumptions and definitions of such controversial terms as paradigm, science, faith and religion. Among the rhetorical questions posited and explored are – What exactly is wrong with the paradigm of science? What caused it? Who caused it? How was it caused and most importantly how to fix it if it is fixable at all? A prima facie case is made that it may be fixable, if at all and if and only if, erroneous knowledge is corrected or purged especially if it originated from such icons of science as Aristotle, Galileo, Newton, Darwin and Einstein. Other methods of fixing the paradigm include LCM (Lowest Common Multiple) and HCF (Highest Common Factor) of what is harmonious in knowledge pigeon-holed or even straight jacketed into compartments.Errors in both science and religion can be ameliorated if not obviated by application of empirical scientific methods to faith and religious concepts and best practices to science, which is further illustrated by a faith science ladder. The paramount impact and the nexus of the science paradigm is then discussed on a variety of dicta inter alia, Ockham’s razor, irreducible complexity, simplicity of the universe and non-existent vestigial organs of the universe, if there be any for which the use has not yet been ascertained by the shifting science paradigm.
