Everything that exists falls into one of three groups: What we know; what we know that we don't know; and what we don't know that we don't know. Philosophy and theology should point us towards truth. Science should confirm and prove truth. The two aren't mutually exclusive.

The "scientific" atheism that is fashionable these days is a religion unto itself: It closes the realm of discussion to just what is evident; it is openly hostile to anything that isn't tangible or concrete; and it rejects millenia of thought and debate, much of which is ultimately validated by science anyway.
