This is a good question. What is interesting to me is, some people will read this and in their mind weigh science against God, instead of what the question actually states. The word in question is religion, not God.
Science does not go against God. Quite the opposite, as the more we learn about the basic fabric of reality, the more we understand how our universe is made up of information. This in itself raises all kinds of possibilities and is the main reason I believe in God.
Science led me to God.
All science really is, is a philosophy of testing reality. In this philosophy there are limits to knowledge, and once you pass that limit, that’s where metaphysics steps in. A rigorous scientists will be sketpical of anything which cannot be proven, and as a scientist, that is how it should be. But when that scientist takes off the propeller-topped beanie at the end of the day, and is not testing reality, s/he can sit back, look at the big picture, and allow belief to take over.
Belief that this vast Universe of information may in fact be a giant mind. The Mind of God.
The main conflict between science and religion is not whether or not there is a God, but whether or not the various Holy Books are literal accounts of history. Science and God co-exist quite well, but science and the Bible do not.
