Why does religion always contradict science?

    It does not always.  It is just the concepts that are in line are from a religious point of view not based by evidence but you don’t hear about it because there is no controversy.

    The only exception that comes immediately to mind is the Big Bang which is ironic cause the Big Bang started with religious intentions. 

    A catholic priest George’s lemartier (who was also a mathematician, came up w the concept of the “primordial atom” in which he was looking for the means and method which god created the universe. The hypothesis of the “primordial atom” became later known as the Scientific theory of the Big Bang.

    Science deals in the realm of facts and evidence and strives for accuracy and truth. religion is based on faith with no real effort to strive for accuracy and no real use for the truth if that truth and facts don’t point to their views.

    Science has nothing to do with religion, and religion has nothing to do with science. They deal with entirely different matters. Science deals with measuring that which is made of matter etc, religion deals with discovering that which is spiritual i.e. immaterial. So what does this Q even mean? WHAT religion, and WHAT science?

    It doesn't, not in the slightest.  It's usually not about scientific matters and therefore reflects the scientific ignorance of the time but that's not the same about it contradicting science, which incidentally is of its nature in constant flux.

    Religion doesn't contradict science and science doesn't contradict religion people just like to contradict each other and keep fighting and arguing about anything and everything.  if they aren't fighting over politics it's over science, if it isn't over science is over gender, if it is over gender it's race. People love contradicting each other in order to feel important.  The fact of the matter is that everything is world is interrelated. Everything in this universe is interrelated.

    It doesn’t. Check out the ancient Hindu scriptures and so forth. Understanding of quantum mechanics and other branches of science goes way back

    True religion cannot contradict true science, because truth cannot contradict truth. Jesus Christ founded one Church, said it was to remain one, and promised that one Church "The Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth", and "Whatsoever you bind upon Earth is bound in Heaven", and "He who hears you hears Me". As a result of these divine guarantees of truth, the teaching of that one Church (which includes well over half of all Christians) never conflicts with natural truths revealed by science.

    False premise.  Religion does NOT "always contradict science."

    I don’t think it does - can you give some examples?

    Obviously a lot of ancient religious texts, like those in the Bible, disagree with what we now know and understand but that’s because they originated thousands of years ago and were based on what people believed at the time.

    That is equally true of old scientific, medical and geographical texts.

    It is because western science has an anti-Islamic agenda to discredit the teachings of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). For example; western science claims the earth is a sphere that orbits around the sun. However, we know this teaching is false because the Noble Qur'an and Sunnah are perfectly clear the earth is flat, spread out like a carpet, and the sun ascends to the Throne of Allah before descending into a murky lake of water.
