Well, if you can say nothing about prowess of math which we witness and use every time we start a car or turn on radio/TV/cellphone, or visit a doctor, or buy something we like, let's as you suggested, speak about who (or what) is more humble - religion or science. Scientists DO NOT tell nature let alone to people HOW TO BEHAVE or WHAT TO DO. Scientists simply observe how things work and state it in their papers. Religion, in turn, TELLS the nature how to behave: god CREATED the earth, god CREATED human, god GOVERNS processes in our brain, god MIXED languages, god CREATES stars, god PUNISHES bad us and REWARDS good us, god GOVERNS our emotions, god MAKES babies, god KILLS babies (if nesessary), god COMMUNICATES superluminally and at once with ALL intelligent beings in ALL galaxies of Universe, and so on. Let alone that religious leaders TELL people how to behave.

So, who is more humble: a scientist who observes falling apple and logically assumes that there might be a general law behind it, or a priest who says that a human is the center of the Universe and everything in Universe revolves around allmighty God and HAS to obey his ORDERS?
