    Science decries religion for not being scientific. Religion complains that it never said it was scientific.

    Big f'ing surprise.

    They are fundamentally different things so using one the language of one to evaluate the other is pointless.

    Science has lots to say about religion - sociologically, physiologically, economically, etc. But none of that matters to the concept of religion because religion isn't a scientific theory for the religious.

    That is the point - it is something different, outside of science.

    And if you can't cope with anything being outside of science you will always see religion as people making a scientific mistake.
