This is exactly not true. Science DOES NOT tell electrons to orbit nuclei - electrons do it even without science. If you disagree, think: electrons were orbiting even before Shroedinger, evolution was well and alive before Darwin, we were a galaxy of billios stars before astronomy, the Earth was a sphere before Columbus (or even greeks).

The difference is that all this stuff was there regardless our guesses, sciences, religions, etc. and well before them.

So science STATES facts, then analyses them and provides LOGICAL (=mathematical) explanation which then is used for predictions (and in most cases predicts very well unless you did not account for something).

At the same time religion DENIES facts, does NOT analyse, makes predictions which are mostly INCORRECT, because they are based on initially incorrect assumption (about governing role of God).

That is exactly why science is so much useful than religion: it is logical (=mathematical), correctly predicts things and does not have room for assumptions/speculations contradicting observed facts.
