Here is a link, on Discover Magazine's site, to one of the best discussions I have ever seen on the question of whether or not religion and science are compatible. I believe a discussion here of the same thing may be beneficial.
Religion and science, of course, are very different from each other. While science is based on suggesting a hypothesis, then examining the data and rejecting those hypotheses that fail the test, religion makes statements of fact that are not based on any measurable data. But should we just throw out religion? There are many things that science just doesn't know. Could something supernatural happen without science being able to detect it? For example, when you die you don't come back. You are dead. But the Bible says that Jesus came back to life after 3 days. According to science, this cannot be, based on hypotheses that have been tested again and again over time. But could there be another hypothesis that science has missed? Of course not. But faith is a funny thing. the word "supernatural" suggests something not natural, and as such, not in the realm of science.
So what about it? Is science the end all of knowledge, or can some things be explained through faith? In attempting to answer this question, you should realize that you are not going to be able to explain God in terms of science, and just as equally, you are not going to be able to explain science in terms of religion. Both areas are mutually exclusive from each other.
