Religious people belive that God created the universe. It is also evident that He did not explain to man how it worked. Science is finding it out. So religious people should have all interest in knowing what science says of this universe, check it against their traditional conceptions, and make necessary adjustements. So science has a lot to do for religion.
The reverse should also happen, that is, the discovery of the universe laws should bring scientist closer to God.
In the real world, instead, we see that science an religion tend to be hostile of each other. I think, in part, this is a product of traditional religion holding stounchly to untennable positions.

Creationism and evolutionism should not be mutually excluding.
