Gee, honestly, I don't even see science and religion as dealing with the same set of questions at all. Science is just the study of how the physical world works. It doesn't really strive to answer why (you know. the general sort of why), in fact I fail to see how it ever could. there could be a teapot orbiting the sun. and the question of a god is a totally different sort of question anyways, so the teapot argument is pretty silly.
