Science without philosophy has no guide (is blind). It researches pointless things rather than what we want to know, like the origin of the universe and how to stop global warming. Philosophy without science has no substance (is empty): As an example, more than 2000 years ago, the Grecian philosopher Democritus came up with the idea of atoms, but it was just an idea without meaning until science developed to support his theory.

We are just in a position to understand what is philosophy and science.Just may be a drop in the ocean. So let us allow the younger with their beliefs.Tomorrow these beliefs may correct.
