Such attacks currently being waged against Science (mostly in medical care) are:
Anti-Abortion, Anti-Vaccination, Anti-Contraception, Anti-Transfusion, Anti-Evolution (Creationism) and others which pop up from time to time.
All these attacks have been based on Unsubstantiated Faith, not Substantiated trials and verifiable evidences.
Science is based on the continual prodding and probing of reality for verified responses and information. If a hypothesis (unverified) is made, it has to undergo rigorous testing to ever become a Theory, it is then forever doomed to be re-tested as all it's evidence needs to be replicated and reassessed.
Christianity, on the other hand, lives on extremely Blind Faith, concerning miraculous deeds of a man who preached over 2000 years ago that no contemporary evidence can be found for.
Since there is no contemporary evidence that Jesus performed a single miracle, nor was resurrected, it leaves Christianity completely Unsubstantiated by evidence.
A further broken link in Christianity and indeed all Judaic religions is that it is now deemed that the "Book Of Exodus" is fraudulent and the Exodus event never occurred.
Making Christianity even less substantiated.
For an unsubstantiated system of knowledge (Christianity) to attack a substantiated system of knowledge (Science) is entirely ludicrous.
The unsubstantiated system of knowledge should always be Ignored.
Governing and Medical bodies should always simply ignore Unsubstantiated Faith, attacks against Science.
Long story short, their hypocrits sometimes and just about every argument they present can be flipped back on them showing the lack of standard and abundance of imbalance. If Christians wish to be so "pure" and "faithful" then they should realize they're toeing the devotion line when they entertain any idea that is gentile-life-influences and sin in hatred toward opposition. Boom.
Science is a method of discovering how nature and the universe works. It is secular and does not hold any positions to be unchangeable or unchangeable. If you want your claims to be deemed true simply provide evidence. When scientist make claims like the Earth is billions of years old it isn't to offend any particular faith. They are presenting facts and making assumptions on those facts. Most American scientists are Christian who happen to agree with most scientists around the world regardless of faith.
If there was a flood 4.000 years ago a Shinto Buddhist scientist from Japan should find evidence for it. His religion doesn't make a claim to the age of the Earth. If Hindu scientists finds out that the the Universe is only 6,000 years old he wouldn't reject it on religious beliefs. If an Atheist archaeologist were to discover Noah's Ark, he would be rich instantly. Science has nothing to do with faith unless people make statements that fall within the realm of science. You can even use science to prove your beliefs, however, to be fair if the evidence shows you are wrong. It's time to form a new hypothesis.
It is easy for one to oppose what they do not support, but most logical people would be open to new ideas and more scientifically established theories. So why do some Christians attack science just because it disagrees with their faith? The likely answer would be that after a life of belief in "God", it would be incomprehensible to many Christians to think outside the box, and accept a more likely explanation for their existence, amongst other topics. However, it is easy to label those who oppose science as illogical, as some may have rooted beliefs in Christianity and their life may revolve around religion. That is why I accept people for their personal beliefs, but I hate it when some more aggressive religious believers attack science with no real basis for their arguments.

Science has always been about not knowing the answer and always working towards new questions, religion takes the stance that they already have the answers and there trying to cherry pick the evidence to assume it's in their favor. However in reality if science isn't in ones favor, they should doubt their views.
My issue with religion is that some people don't just stand for their faith and express their belief, they want to throw it at people of different views and basically tell anyone of different view point that they're wrong. Christians have been found to be consistant in their bashing. That may seem to be a stereotype but it's what you hear most about. No. Christians should not attack science because it disagrees with their belief. SCIENCE CAN BE PROVEN. To take word over proof is quite common in christianinty and I don't see as to how it's okay to take away the right of education because of right of religion.
I say let the cult's have a try because people of science like Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins have debates with Christians all the time.But the bad thing is,Is that people of "faith" can't deal with fact from having been forced to believe as a kid or just don't have the mental wellbeing to see the point's of reality.So my conclusion is that if science can judge religion,religion can try really hard to judge science.
