The "science is just more different religion" statement doesn't take into account that while science leaves room for the possibility that someone may have gotten something wrong, most mainstream religion follows much more of an Absolute Truth philosophy. Yes, in formulating scientific theories, we hold true, for instance that 2+2=4. However, the reason for such assumption is a mindset of "these are assumptions we have made in order to create an infrastructre to work within" as opposed to "because the word of God is truth." Specifically, while science leaves the possiblity open that such infrastructure may need to change, religion is much slower (if at all) to welcome such changes.
