The history of science shows that the modern scientific method arose in the context of the Christian worldview of 16th-18th century Europe by scientists who in very large percentage were Christians. Their view of one supreme God held that God is a rational, orderly, omnipresent God in full control of nature, and purposing his creation to serve man and God's glory. This founds the consistency, dependability, of God's "laws" (or ongoing action of providence). And their Biblical view of man was man made in God's likeness such that man is rational like God, and can "think God's thoughts after Him," thus discovering truth about the world of nature, created from God's mind. Thus it is worth doing science. The modern scientific method developed in the context of this worldview, not in ancient Greece (though they had math and some astronomy), Rome, nor in Buddhist, Hindu nor Islamic countries.
