    Non Overlapping Magisteria doesn’t work. Religion makes statements about the nature of reality; that (a) god(s)(dess)(es) exist, that the universe was created in a specific way, that the universe is a certain age, that humans have a soul, that various supernatural phenomena occur. All of those things fall under the purview of science.
