I'm sorry, I missed that (was it earlier in this thread?). Could you
mention a few of religion's successes in describing the physical world again?

scientific world views (i.e., propose geological theories based on a
literal interpretation of Genesis). As long as religion sticks to poetry
and ethics, science is not a challenge to such outlooks.
