If one took something so seriously then they wouldnt attempt to critically examine it, because its religion not science.

Please do not fall into the trap that religious claims = claims that get a free pass from examination. The major religions make very specific claims about reality, and are not averse to using scientific evidence when they think it is in their favor. It is only when evidence goes against those claims that the tired arguments about religion being completely separate from evidence, reason, and critical analysis get wheeled out.

Religion has always been a closed belief system, however if you criticise a certain part of it I'm sure that religion will have an acceptable comeback

How can a comeback be acceptable if it comes from a closed system that admits no contradicting evidence?

as it is still learning things already known by religion.

What is science still learning that religion already knew? Do tell.
