One is a science, based on evidence, and the other is a system of beliefs based on faiths.
Now stop fighting.
I think you solved the problem (of course not).
Science makes assumptions, integrates them into a theory, and considers the theory a foundation for scientific discovery. Unfortunately, as we have
seen innumerable times, things that do not fit the theory, or scientists that do not adhere to the theory, are thrown out.
Religion tells us where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going. In the case of Christianity, it relies on historical written records
that are subject to the exegesis of scholars.

They are both religions IMHO.
Science is the religion of the State, which needs science to advance the power of the State over other States. For example, science was emphasized in
our schools after Sputnik crossed our skies and told us we were no longer #1. President Eisenhower then signed into law greater budget allowances for
science in the schools. The State religion pressed evolution into the textbooks at a rate never before seen, literally 10 times more "education"
about it. Not more than a few years after his presidency, abortion laws were passed after we discovered that we were mere animals, we live by
survival of the fittest, that there is no God. Now we were able to pass laws for abortion with little or no consideration for any God or respect for
our mere animal life. Finally, we became able to manage our families by killing our unborn for the sake of our own personal progress, which
collectively improves the progress of the State.
Is this the appropriate religion for us, or could it be that a religion based on consideration and love for others may be better?
