Science and God

Until recently, scientists were largely religious men who wanted to better understand God’s creation. More and more, though, scientists have been rejecting the notion of God.  Why is this?  I don’t think that science and religion are necessarily irreconcilable.

The attitude of the Christian Church certainly plays a part in this.  All throughout history, men with strange ideas about the world that don’t seem to fit with the Bible have been persecuted.  Rather than find a way to resolve the apparent contradiction (which would, incidentally, strengthen the idea that the Bible is God’s Word is Truth), the Church found it easier to disregard the idea as heresy.  Now, with science quickly approaching the point where it can seemingly explain everything, religion is increasingly viewed as unnecessary.
