Theology is the science that governs all other sciences. I liked the movie "Contact" because there was science and there was religion, both supposedly dedicated to truth, or searching for truth.
Frankly, in both religion and science, I see hypocrisy and deceit. It doesn't matter what a person believes it is honesty that matters the most. Why should any of us think we are absolutely right when the reality is ... who among us have talked with God... or seen the splitting of an atom.
Comprehending the universe and its beauty and order the idea of a BIG Bang making it all happen seems an idea that only the mentally impaired would accept. (No big deal... some religious ideas are equally obnoxious to me.) That and the scriptures with their knowledge (which I would label "The Wisdom of the Ancients"), and my personal experiences (death is not the end... this I know for myself) tells me God (and I do not think of Him/them in the normal sense) is the true benchmark for us to go by.
Science, in it's true sense, is absolutely invigorating in the knowledge it brings. In fact without true scientific principles God and religion cannot be really be fathomed even in the smallest sense.
