Philosophy and Science

I was just reading an article on “Freshly Pressed” discussing how some philosophers argue that philosophy is a branch of science.  On the contrary, I would argue that science is merely a branch or extension of philosophy.

Einstein said Science, Art, and Religion are all part of the same tree.

I would like to think of spirituality as the trunk, art as one big branch, philosophy as another and then math and science making up all the smaller stems and twigs.
Also, I prefer the word spirituality over religion now because religion sounds too dogmatic from so much past aggression. Too much dogmatism destroys true art and science and turns spirituality into something that divides rather than unites.
