Religion pre-dates science by tens of thousand of years. A limited number of scientists were involved in the torture-murders at the Nazi camps, There were tens of thousands of slave laborers who perished ar Peenemunde. Also thousands have worked, over the decades, in the biowarfare and nuclear weaponry, which is currently aimed at civilians.

The point is that science is far from total responsibility, and holding scientists to being such great moral authorities is as crazy as holding religious leaders to such great esteem.
