The reverse is most assuredly not true.  There are a godzillion questions for which we once had a religious answer, for which we now have a more comprehensive scientific answer.

Put this side by side with the utter lack of scientific answers replaced by religious ones and there is a big king-kong-sized, as-obvious-as-a-volcanic-eruption-seen-from-inside-the-caldera conclusion to be drawn here.  I don't think I have to spell it out to anyone *here*.

we used to treat climate as a scientific subject, and global warming as a measured effect.

The myth that there is a controversy has since gained considerable traction.

Science once advocated for human eugenics, including the forced sterilization of the mentally or physically handicapped.  Religion objected.

Science argued that some races were less intelligent by virtue of various physical traits.  Religion dissented.

Science experimented on human subjects who were poor, or of a particular racial group, without their consent.   Religion objected.

Science advocated for, created, and continues to create weapons of mass destruction.   Religion objects.

It is interesting to me, however, to observe these atheist myths. ;-)

@Professor Robert, 

You have some valid points, bar the last one. Many religious do not reject to the use of weapons in general.  Most proponents of the NRA are of what religious stance? You guessed Christians. Many world leaders are pro-war and have NO problem ordering their national defence to use weapons of mass destruction. 

So religion doesn't really reject that at all, as a matter of fact I could find plenty of biblical quotes supporting mass destruction and obliteration. 

Such as:

Judges 5:31

"So may all your enemies perish, O LORD! But may they who love you be like the sun when it rises in its strength."
