Well said on "actually".

Scientism is serious...as Marios points out, science has nothing to do with atheism/theism.

Theists try to point that out to scientismists, and now I'm trying to do so.

And your manner of response was anticipated, actually...err, in my opinion.

Science deals with learning about reality. The books that describe gods also describe other things about reality that aren't true. We know that these books have inaccuracies because of science. If a book can't get the basics of reality correct, why should we believe what it has to say about it's origins?
