I think science and religion are about as closely related as fishing and stone cutting.
Science is about finding out and figuring out without preconceptions. Explaining the world and how it works according to what the material evidence indicates --and only what it indicates no matter what-- is the business of science.
Religion is under no obligation to explain anything. Religion is about relationship, and a personal relationship, with whatever may or may not be there at the point where being and nothingness meet. Religion is a leap of faith, but it is hardly the only one in life. Currency is always a matter of faith, and so is our daily conviction that everyone else beyond ourselves is not a robot. Neither the value of currency nor the my-neighbors-are-not-robots idea are demonstrable or provable.
