Science (done right) is evidence-based and provides control, religion is faith-based and provides an illusion of control.
Science = derives conclusions from gathered data
Religion = makes conclusions, then gathers data to back them up
Otoh, 'science fail' is pretty similar to religion.
A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '
Religion should in theory be centered around scientific findings, and also be able to adapt its opinions accordingly. Otherwise, they will pretend to enjoy their (fake) explanations of a poorly-designed dream world rather than opening their eyes and seeing the creation as it really is to envision its coming transformations.
Basically, if someone or something proves you wrong, or at least provides important information that could potentially point away from your original assumptions, it's best to let it expand your awareness and not cause you to hide in the magician's theatre.
Still, religions have often asked very penetrating questions about the fundamental foundations of everything, but they just go about answering them the wrong way.
