What’s Science Got to Do with It?

What exactly is the relationship between science and atheism?

Answer: There is none proven.
I gather this from the following words in the post.

1. “If I broaden “science” to include all stem fields, then I can find some atheists as well as a whole lot of practicing Christians, more Jews and at least one Wiccan with a degree in mathematics.”
2. “But all in all most of the atheists I know are not only not scientists, but they don’t even have an interest in it. Clearly, not only is an interest in science insufficient to turn you into an atheist, being an atheist does not imply an interest in science.”
3. “One reason I was always appreciative of the presence of Christopher Hitchens among those individuals who received attention for taking a public stance on atheism a few years ago is he had no connection to the scientific community.”
4. “Not believing is the absence of a state and needs no reason.”
