I couldn't help but register and post after reading through most of this thread.
First, I am amazed at most of the mature discussion regarding such a subject, it is good to see.
Second a little about me. I am Christian, but I also love science (I am a mechanical engineer). I had drifted away from my faith for a time in my life only to be inexplicably drawn back to it, even after earning my degree and expanding my scientific knowledge for many years.
I find in any belief of there being no God, where science rules all, that there is a scientific area that cannot be proven or disproven and can explain God's very possible existence.
Simply put, God can be a being from another dimension. If you think about what that means, supernatural occurances don't become automatically disregarded, the odd need for the world to have religion (even today) is explained. This idea opens up possibilities to things we cannot comprehend, and we may never understand because we do not live in such a higher dimension.
God's interactions could be interpreted into what we see today in religious texts. Even if one does not believe for instance, that the Bible is real, it could have truths in it. Just like any good legend, there is always at least a grain of truth in them.
One can also say (as crazy as this sounds) that God could be a very advanced alien. Maybe there is truth to all of the religions that existed or exist today, they were based off human interactions with aliens lol. It might sound crazy, but the scientific minded would know its incredibly likely aliens exist.
Now this might make our religions seem a little primative, but whos to say, scientific minded or not, atheist or whatever, that God or gods etc, can't or don't exist.
Sorry for my spelling, grammar etc, engineer, not an editor.
Edit:This is a fun read and makes the hamster wheels in my head turn a little.
