As for Science destroying Religion. I buy that as being an issue but I see the same problems that Religion has simply to be traversed over to Science. Not be abolished by Science.
Consider the Big Bang as the Atheists' version of Genesis. Consider the way many scholars have begun to explain the Bible to the general public such as Reza Aslan. Look at TV shows such as "Spartacus" and the way their language is contrived in the show. And classically look at Shakespeare's plays in Elizabethan.
Scientists which take the standpoint that the Bible has been disproved is an undereducated view. The growth / evolution of the human psyche has simply evolved and Science has paved the way in the last couple of hundred years or so, by changing our methods of story telling and explaining situations.
We have grown as a collective and created language mechanisms that allow us to explain the very definition of a story or situation directly.
E.G "Joe is a good guy he is very kind and likes to help the homeless". The old school way of telling the story would be "Joe is so kind he gave his own shirt to a homeless person".
Whether Joe actually did give his shirt to a homeless person is not at all relevant. But the story transmutes Joe's character. The entire bible is built based on this comparative process. It is not false. It wasn't created by a bunch of nutters back in the "day" so-to-speak. No, it was created by the people of that time to tell stories in the way they knew how to.
The Big Bang is the direct version. Genesis the medieval version which is example driven using the examples of that time to define its very meaning. In any case, Reza Aslan explains it quite well in one of his interviews.
