Science does not support atheism or theism. It is a process which is used to examine things which can be examined. Material things.

It is not used to show the fact of existence, but to examine the fact of existence.

In this, science can be used to provide some evidence as to how things on earth came to be but cannot be used to determine whether these things happened through a mindless process or a mindful process.

Thus it cannot support theism or atheism because it cannot show conclusively that the process was or was not a mindful one.

The evidence which comes to light through the process of science can be interpreted either way. The atheist can interpret the evidence as being a mindless process… because the implication of an intelligent creator behind the process = “GOD” and atheism by default is not having any belief in “GODs” … and the theist can interpret the same evidence as being a mindful process, because the theist by default has belief in “GOD(s)” – an intelligent designer or for that matter, a group of intelligent designers.

Science itself is just a process and thus is not something that has an opinion either way. Opinions either way derive from those who interpret the same evidence in a different way.

Science also is not capable of being used to determine what is or isn’t ‘the truthful religion’, even if there actually was one.

Science does not support atheism or theism. It is a process which is used to examine things which can be examined. Material things.

Thanks for poising believers and non-believers equally.
As one agrees science does not provide a refuge to Atheism, and the like. Atheism is just a position of indecision having roots neither in Science nor in Religion. All the basics of the truthful Religion, the six Articles of faith* together with five pillars of observance are beyond the observable material science. The truthful founders of all revealed religions and particularly the founder of the Truthful Religion never spoke anything against Science, as a branch of knowledge, or the scientists. They did not want to hamper its progress so they left it open to be dealt with on material observation (belonging to the “seen” realm/s). Religions’ stress is on the “unseen realm/s”:

[2:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
[2:2] Alif Lam Mim.
[2:4] Who believe in the unseen and observe Prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them;
[2:5] And who believe in that which has been revealed to thee, and that which was revealed before thee, and they have firm faith in what is yet to come
[2:6] It is they who follow the guidance of their Lord and it is they who shall prosper

*Six Articles of Faith
• Unity of God
• His Angels
• His Books
• His Prophets
• The Last Day
• Divine Decree
**Five Pillars of Islam (for its observance)
• Kalima
• Prayer
• Fasting
• Zakaat
• Hajj
