What about science makes you not think it's true? What does religion do that science doesn't? What does religion have that science doesn't and makes you trust it more?

A handful of Christian creationists....
Dr. "Fritz" Schaefer
Graham Perdue Professor of Chemistry and the director of the Center for Computational Quantum Chemistry at the University of Georgia. He has been nominated for the Nobel Prize and was recently cited as the third most quoted chemist in the world. "The significance and joy in my science comes in the occasional moments of discovering something new and saying to myself, 'So that's how God did it!' My goal is to understand a little corner of God's plan."
Dr Charlie Townes
Won the Nobel Prize for discovering the maser. One statement he made differs greatly from Hawking's view; he said, "In my view, the question of origin seems to be left unanswered if we explore from a scientific view alone. Thus, I believe there is a need for some religious or metaphysical explanation. I believe in the concept of God and in His existence."
Dr Arthur Schawlow
Another Nobel Prize winner; a professor at Stanford who identifies himself as a Christian. He states, "We are fortunate to have the Bible and especially the New Testament which tells us so much about God in widely accessible human terms."
Dr John Polkinghorn
Nuclear physicist; left his chair of theoretical physics at Cambridge in 1979 and went to seminary to become a minister. Upon completing that, he had a parish church for awhile and now has recently come back to be the President of Queen's College at Cambridge. He states, "I take God very seriously indeed. I am a Christian believer and I believe that God exists and has made Himself known in human terms in Jesus Christ."
Dr David H. Rogstad
Earned a Ph.D. in physics from Caltech before launching his career as a rocket scientist. During his 31 years at Caltech and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Worked on a number of high-profile projects, including the supercomputers used to simulate national defense scenarios dubbed "Star Wars." Also led the technical team credited with saving the Galileo Mission to Jupiter. In addition to publishing more than 20 papers on radio astronomy in scientific journals, was commissioned to co-author and edit Antenna Arraying Techniques in the Deep Space Network (Wiley, 2003). This book is part of the prestigious JPL series that lays a foundation for innovation in deep space navigation and communications. Still serves as a technical consultant to the Lab
Dr Hugh Ross
At age seventeen he was the youngest person yet to serve as director of observations for Vancouver's Royal Astronomical Society. With the help of a provincial scholarship and a National Research Council (NRC) of Canada fellowship, he completed his undergraduate degree in physics (University of British Columbia) and graduate degrees in astronomy (University of Toronto). The NRC also sent him to the United States for postdoctoral studies. At Caltech he researched quasars, some of the most distant and ancient objects in the universe.
Dr Jeffrey Zweerink
From the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) where he still serves (part-time) on the physics and astronomy research faculty. Although science has been a major interest for most of his life, Jeff developed a fascination with gamma rays-messengers from vastly distant black holes and neutron stars-during his graduate studies at Iowa State University, where he earned his Ph.D. in 1997. Conducted research using the STACEE and VERITAS gamma-ray telescopes. Involved in research projects such as the Solar Two Project and the Whipple Collaboration. Has co-authored more than 30 journal articles and numerous conference proceedings.
Dr Benjamin Carson
Grew up in a single parent home with dire poverty, poor grades, and low self-esteem. His mother had a third-grade education. He attended Yale University, and earned a degree in Psychology, then attended the Medical School of the University of Michigan. Today, Ben is a full professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery, and pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and has directed pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center for nearly a quarter of a century. He became the inaugural recipient of a professorship dedicated in his name in May, 2008. He now holds more than 50 honorary degrees, is renowned in the scientific arena, and is still a devout Christian.

Originally Answered: Do these laws of science deny creation itself?
Do you think you messed up by saying him?????? You havent found God yet its fine. All of science and Albert Einstein agrees the universe had a beginning so what are you talking about. The bible said so to because the universe did start at some point. God did it.
Why do scientific, religious denying people deny religion? Personally I think that Science and Religion are only two of the many ways to truth. Believe it or not, scientists just like priests/pastors do get some things wrong. There are a lot of theories and assumptions that could be false coming from both science and religion. Science is just a branch of knowledge, only one of the many ways that we can learn about material and physical things. What about the non-material and non-physical things? In trying to study those, science is a bit limited right now. Science is only out to understand the physical world we live in and everything in it, not prove what's true and what isn't. Technically, science can only prove things to be false by observing and experimenting. Science is objective while religion is subjectve, like our outside enivironment vs our mind, thoughts and feelings. Both are real, none more truer than the other.

"Christians and Mormons all deny the workings of science" You have to now not be aware of very many Mormons or are just extremely ignorant. Each my father and my spouse's father earned their dwelling in scientific fields. My sweetheart's father taught chemistry and physics. My Dad was once an engineer. Once I was once growing up my mothers and fathers had been ordinary subscribers to the national Geographic and preferred Science Magazines. I do know a couple of LDS medical professionals, a geologist, and an professor of Anthropology. We use Holy Books on the grounds that they incorporate the phrase of God.

Why do you deny the one who Created REAL Science ?
I do not trust Religion nor do real Christians
WE TRust God and WE KNow who the Creator is, and IT is HIM we Hold to.
But why do you believe in man made science and not the Real Science God created and the wisdom and knowledge He gives ?

Science is about repeatable observations.
Obviously then, science cannot repeat the origins of universe and life and hence they are beyond the scope of science. That's where natural ends and supernatural takes over.

Originally Answered: Based on Science liberals are more accepting to new social, scientific or religious ideas. Who do you want?
Yep, I knew this already, and here's some more. Note that these studies can't be liberally biased because they're based on the interviewees' own political answers.
As kids, liberals had developed close relationships with peers and were rated by their teachers as self-reliant, energetic, impulsive, and resilient.
[They] are higher on openness, which includes intellectual curiosity, excitement-seeking, novelty, creativity for its own sake, and a craving for stimulation like travel, color, art, music, and literature.
Multiple studies find that liberals are more optimistic. [They] are more likely to like classical music and jazz, conservatives, country music. Liberal men like romantic comedies more than conservative men. Liberal women are more likely than conservative women to enjoy books, poetry, writing in a diary, acting, and playing musical instruments.
Liberals are messier than conservatives, their rooms have more clutter and more color, and they tend to have more travel documents, maps of other countries, and flags from around the world. Liberals have more books, and their books cover a greater variety of topics.
Liberals... are "more likely to see gray areas and reconcile seemingly conflicting information." As a result, liberals like John Kerry, who see many sides to every issue, are portrayed as flip-floppers.
