Figuring God into the world of science is a nebulous task. What happens when observers of the fact-based natural world must come to terms with the faith-based spirituality of the mystical world?
Over the centuries, scientists' opinions have varied—from a reconciliation of the two to a complete rejection of one or the other. These days, many scientists span a middle ground—admitting the possibility of an omnipotent force, but refusing to assert one exists because, well, "we just don't know."
Below are science and religion quotes from 20 top scientists, ranging from the founding fathers of science to modern researchers who chose to speak out about their religious beliefs.'

This is a wonderful article...please see the link below to see all of the statements about God made by these famous scientists..some old, some new.
And, here is a bit of important information from The Urantia Book about the effort to reconcile the seemingly unbridgeable gap between science and religion:
3:6.3 All religious philosophy, sooner or later, arrives at the concept of unified universe rule, of one God. Universe causes cannot be lower than universe effects. The source of the streams of universe life and of the cosmic mind must be above the levels of their manifestation. The human mind cannot be consistently explained in terms of the lower orders of existence. Man’s mind can be truly comprehended only by recognizing the reality of higher orders of thought and purposive will. Man as a moral being is inexplicable unless the reality of the Universal Father is acknowledged.
So, we see that it is not really a case of either religion OR science...it is more a case of reconciling these seeming opposites by means of PHILOSOPHY, which easily bridges that gap.
