Scientific Theories and Religious Dogmas

No scientific theory is set in stone, since scientific theories are explanations of natural phenomena in the here and now using extant knowledge which changes with time, hence causing theories to become redundant.

Not so religion which is set in stone and can thus never change. New data makes a deity obsolete? Never!

Trouble starts to brew when the religious start to engage in science, for then the thinking patterns associated with religion are imported into the scientific sphere.
