      I personally don’t believe in God (I’m Atheist) but it’s not because I think it’s all science.

      Science and religion do not need to be mutually exclusive, and really shouldn’t be. Science can only explain the observable universe and everything in it, and at the end of the day, science isn’t able to explain absolutely everything (yet!)
      Humans benefit from spirituality regardless, and religion can help to take care of this part of life. At the end of the day, religion is a deeply personal thing (as it should be), while science merely allows us to understand the world around us. There’s no reason why it can’t coexist. As it is, there are several very religious scientists, and a few scientific priests, a great example being https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Consolmagno
