You have to understand the 'crowd' they cater too. There are many scientists who are Christian, but there are many more who are very anti-religious
in general. They consider it a type of prejudice to their science if they allow any type of belief to cloud their outcome, yet they fail to see that
becomes a religion itself and has the same effect.
I grew up knowing someone who was a scientists, and actually ended up becoming a pastor, teacher, and a writer who deals with the religious
implications of many scientific findings.
Anyway, you'll find this stuff written about, but not in the hardcore science community.
Let me give you some examples of how science, archeology, and religion do peacefully coexist.
Sodom and Gomorrah (the five cities of the plains):
Originally thought to be only a story.
They have since found several of these cities. The area, which now will not support any amount of human life, was found to support these five large
cities. At least two of them appear to have been destroyed at nearly the same time, and in a manner that seems consistent with the writings of the
bible (possibly earthquake and fire). People were found dead, frozen, in a similar fashion to the bodies found Pompeii.
Sodom and Gomorrah
Again once thought to be a story.
Since then we have discovered that an asteroid impacted a shallow bit of ocean that was once in Iraq. This dates exactly to the time of the supposed
flood, around 3000bc. The flash-boiling of the ocean, as well as the tsunamis created by this would fit the descriptions giving in writings such as
the Bible and Epic of Gilgamesh. While the bible states that the entire 'world' would have been effected, the bible often refers to the 'known
world' as the entire 'world'.
Umm Al Binni Lake
Science has since found that by mutating a single gene, sort of like setting a 'flag' in a computer program, can more then double the lifespan of
roundworms. They have some roundworms that they have extended the lifespans to the human equivalent of 500years old.
Anyway, that is just a few examples for you to look further into yourself.
