In the beginning, we knew nothing so the answer was always, God.
Then, we began to ask questions. We prayed but God never replied. So, again we said, the answer is God.
It came to pass one day when a person had a question and, instead of asking God, they decided to conduct a test. The answer, strangely, was not God.
It came to pass that more people asked more questions and did not ask God for the answer. They created tests and experiments and found more answers that did not end with God.
Soon, God no longer made mountains or made babies. God did not cause the stars to shine or apples to fall. More questions and more experiments meant that God was no longer the only answer. It seemed that God was never the answer.
It is here where Science was born, and God, became god.
I think this represents a view that science and religion are somehow 'opposite' to each other, as if advances in one decreases the strength of the other. This works from the premise that religion is dependent on God being the explanation for natural phenomena. But do theists share this premise? Does one's faith in God depend, in some way, on the perceived role of God in the natural world? Or can one still have faith, even if God no longer seems to be involved in the day-to-day running of the universe?
