Is it safe to say the scientific community would slam all religions as cults: “myth—persistent, persuasive and unrealistic” and that Ray Franz and the associated cult accusations are outdated considering that religion is slowly being dissolved by the scientific community?
I don't think it's safe to assume that the scientific community would have one consistent opinion on religion in general or on any given religion in particular. It really would depend upon the discipline that is offering the opinion.
There is nothing wrong with creationism as a religious belief. Creationism is sharply criticized when its proponents attempt to present it as a science.
