Well Science has a mean left hook but Christianity has a great uppercut when your not focusing.

I am having questions about things i have learned through my study of science. I have faith, i believe the bible to be the word of god and the truth. But where do things proven by science fall in?

Evolution has yet to be proven, but we have fossils and bones so we know dinosaurs existed. Also, we know the earth to be millions of years old, yet the account of Genesis to the present day is many years short of this.
I am not looking so much for non-believers too debunct the bible and derail my conversion, although non-believers opinions are welcome. I am fully prepared to believe the bible word for word, at the behest of science. After all, the alternative is unacceptable! I suppose what i am looking for here is members opinions of how science and the bible co-exist, if indeed they can.
1 Peter 3:15-18
But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord.
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.
But do this with gentleness and respect,
keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.
It is better, if it is God's will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.
For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.

If you worship god than you deny your faith of christianity, if you worship jesus than you are denying god over person called jesus.
Clearly some groups have too much capital tied into christianity to have to worship a god. It's about job security and cornering the market on a belief. Consider the source, preaching to a bunch of illiterate surf. It is obvious.
Mat 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and [he] to whomsoever the Son will reveal [him].
Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Jhn 3:35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
Jhn 5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
Jhn 5:23 That all [men] should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
Jhn 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
Jhn 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
Jhn 5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
Jhn 5:27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
Jhn 13:3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
Jhn 17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
Jhn 17:10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
1Cr 15:24 Then [cometh] the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
Eph 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
Phl 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
Phl 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth;
Phl 2:11 And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Hbr 2:8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing [that is] not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.
Jhn 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

God is perfect in every way. Man has no excuse for his rebellion against God, and the entire Adamic race has been condemned because of it. God's law doesn't change because we don't like it.
The scripture I cited talks about how a person's conscience knows right from wrong and says that if we don't know God by the law yet do the law anyway from a clean conscience, we obey the law.
Jesus died for the sin of the entire world. The sin of the world is forgiven.
All a person need do now is either accept it or reject it.
By his will we have been sanctified once for all through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ.
"This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws in their hearts and will write them on their minds," and, "I will never again remember their sins and their lawless deeds."
Aborigionies who never heard the name of Jesus will be judged for what they do know, but it is important to note that they also were not presented with the oppurtunity to reject Christ as well.
For at just the right time, while we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
Then let's do.
This is why we should let God be the judge of the heart in the end.
An Aborigonie who never heard of Jesus has a better chance at eternal life than those who have heard of Him and rejected Him. The only way to God is through Jesus Christ.
Consequently, just as one offense resulted in condemnation for everyone, so one act of righteousness results in justification and life for everyone.
