Are Divine Science, Religious Science, Science of Mind, Mental Science, Jewish Science and Holy Science associated with Christian Science?

No. Divine Science, Religious Science, Science of Mind, Mental Science, Jewish Science and Holy Science are all quite different from Christian Science. Divine Science is basically another term for New Thought, or the study and testing of Universal Spiritual Principles and then the application of said principles in a consistent practice. Divine Science has been written about around the globe and does not deny the use of medicine or other such nonsense. Although Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, wrote a book called: Rudimentary Divine Science in 1881, she opposed the use of medicine preferring to focus exclusively on her form of prayer which includes denials of the condition.

Science of Mind is simply a term that describes a type of approach to New Thought principles. Religious Science is a term that is used around the world, to describe the systematic study and application of Spiritual Practices. Swami Yukteswar wrote a popular book in the 19th Century named: Holy Science. This book was very important to Paramahansa Yogananda whose student Roy Eugene Davis went on to create his own New Thought approach.

The key difference between Divine Science, Religious Science, Science of Mind, Mental Science, Jewish Science and Holy Science versus Christian Science is that New Thought remains "open at the top" meaning that there is no belief in a "final revelation".

A key New Thought principle is that any person can become a revealer of Divine principle and that there will never be a final prophet or revelation. One of the foundations of New Thought is the principle of Spiritual Evolution which is eternal and therefore unending.

This contrasts with Christian Science which holds that Mary Baker Eddy had a special and final revelation. During her lifetime Eddy spent an inordinate amount of energy fighting New Thought, in particular focusing on various New Thought leaders who spent some time studying with her at one point or another.
