The atheists have taken over the cathedral

Or perhaps, the Cro-Magnons have taken over the cave...

The origin of Science and the origin of Religion share a common ancestor. It’s not that science emerges from religion... The common ancestor of religion and science is ignorance.

You can regard the relationship between religion and science, as they evolved separately from this common ancestor, as somewhat like the relationship between Cro-Magnon man, which is us, and the Neanderthals, which is them.
