Science and religion can certainly coexist. The only time you'll ever hear me protest is when religion is presented as competition to science in regards to explaining the physics of the universe.
I don't believe that science is competing with religion. I tend to mock those who believe so (and I've done plenty of that around here)... at the same time I'm aware that it has also contributed to the scientific zeitgeist.
