Religions are based upon BELIEF. That which we can perceive, using observation does not belong to Religion, but rather to Science. Science and the scientific method deals neither with things which we can not observe. nor with things which are not reproducible. For something to be scientific it must be both observable, and reproducible.
Thus the domain of science and the domain of religion are clearly set, and mutually exclusive. However, as we progress more things fall into science, as we have more and better observations, and thus these are are removed from speculation and religion.
Religion and politics also do not mix. Allowing either to get mixed into the other is always a recipe for disaster. This mixture of belief which can not be proven with behavioral rules which all are observable is a sure way to restrict freedom, close options for beneficial and productive behavior, and worse restrict behavior to stagnant and UNREAL patters. If you cannot prove it, then you must not try to control it until you know what you are doing. The odds of being wrong are MUCH greater than of being right.
