I do not percieve the title of this forum to mean a coming together of the idea of god and the reality of scientific knowledge. You seem to think that the idea of god is due some necissary consideration by science, and that there is some automatic relationship between the two. Science strives to find understanding of the universe in small steps, not to assume that god is the alpha meaning or conclusion. We may well find that the idea of god (or god itself) can be explained by science, (many think it already has as I do) but it has never been its goal, rather it has traditionally been to dispell the myths religion has imposed upon our perception when science has evidence to contradict it, and often this has ended in misfortune for the scientist.
