I strongly think that a person is a coward to be science educated on one side and believe in illogical stories related to God and religion on the other side.
That's not logical. I'm now an agnostic, but the argument that science necessarily rules out God is unscientific. Science studies what is empirical, it does not ask questions about 'why' things ultimately exist as they do. May scientists around the world have religious beliefs and many don't. That's what I'd expect.
The more science education one has, the more understandable it becomes, how an otherwise educated person might also believe in illogical stories without cowardice having anything to do with it. Illogic has been a part of human nature a lot longer than logic has. If there is any mystery, it is that we are capable of any degree of logic at all. On the other hand, we naturally exhibit no shortage of confidence.
I do not therefore think that they are cowards, merely deluded.
Some people, like famously Stephen J. Gould, see religion and science as existing in two separate realms, ( he called them magisteria, ) one in the spiritual or supernatural and the other in the natural. Which is great if there is no overlap and both sides respect the boundary.
But of course religion can never do that, because religion is, by its nature, imperial and has to expand its empire into the natural world, since no mater how much power and knowledge you may have within the, possibly none existent, supernatural world, it profits you not one jot until someone puts a real material coin in your collecting tin. So that while science never ventures out of its realm, religion in order to appear to have something to give, and a way of obtaining something, must by its very nature invade the natural world or make statements about it. While since religion is free of the idea of objective truth, pear review, or even the need to be logically consistent, it is free to make any claims it wishes, which means of course that if you have a claim to make, especially an unpopular or criminal one, religion is where you go to make it.
Science is the study of nature, not super-nature or supernatural. If something is above, beyond or superior to natural capabilities then it is illogical to think that observation of nature(science) would have a controlled view of something above, beyond or superior.
Thus, your assumption of a person with science education in one hand and acceptance of a God thingie in the other hand to be illogical is illogical for you to think such a thing.
