    Problem is that religion makes claims about the world and the universe. Science makes claims about the world and the universe. Eventually there is going to be conflict.

    If it has dogma which cannot be challenged, preists who are incharge of such dogma, set ways of thinking etc... then it's a religion. Look at global warming.

    So I could believe in God, but as long as I don't attend a dogmatic church I'm not religious?

    Satanism is just another sect of Christianity. Why are the "though police" Satanists?

    Science is the art of knowing, and so I see no reason that those who do believe in God should reject it. What kid of God would give us the keys to discovering the workings of creation and then demand we don't use them?

    I'd argue there's no conflict only if you take science as fact and consider everything that contradicts facts in the bible to be "metaphorical". Both science and religion make claims about the consistency and history of the universe, and they can't both be right. You can't take both literally.

    Now a days we see a whole range of interpetations of the old myths. A lot of people try to fit what we now know into these old myths and say it's compatable. To do this they have to move away from a literal definition of these myths. The compatability of religion and science is dependent on the flexibility of the interpeter. Those who want the old myths to be true and have meaning are quite flexible indeed.
    This! Exactly what I was trying to explain above. Religion and science are only compatible if you make your religious interpretations highly maleable to fit the facts and evidence science has to offer. In the strictest since most of the world religions, and all of the Abrahamaic religions are completely incompatible with science at face value.
