I think you'll find, KAoH, that it's that word "believe" that is the sticking point. Followers of religion choose to "believe" (in often preposterous things) whilst scientists are, or are not, convinced by evidence.

As I've often said to Pete, religious faith is the fervent and unquestioning belief in something invisible for the existence of which there's no evidence - the very antithesis of science. That's why the two can't be reconciled.
