You should read more about what the scientific method is about. Science is based upon evidence, not beliefs.<quoted text>
All other science is based on beliefs, not fact about what happened billions of years ago, but what is believed happened,and most of the evolutionary stuff, that people must take by faith, is pretty much farther put then just.about any crazy religous stuff.
Religion, on the other hand, is not based on evidence, at least not on the objectively measured and reproducible sort required to conduct science. Religion is based on faith. Faith by definition is the continued act of acceptance of an idea without evidence.
Its not a question so much of which box which enterprise should fit in. Its a question of which method is appropriate for each subject matter. The God concept, by nature, is not amenable to scientific method. Evolutionary and other historical processes, on the other hand, are.
Science can deepen ones religious faith. However, faith does little to contribute to the enterprise of science other than on a motivational level. Faith has nothing to offer on the substantial level due to its inability to meet the rules of evidence standard that is necessary to conduct science.
A religious person can be a scientist as long as they follow the scientific rules of inquiry.
