I think that they will never coexist, because there are too many difficulties.
For example, people who believe in God they don't trust to the scientists. There is no scientific facts in the Bible, we can see only legends.
Religion is a simple thing- you can believe or not believe. This is it. If we mix it up with science, we'll see the end of religion.

Sam, I'm interested in your polling data that support your claim that people who believe on God fail to trust scientists. I know quite a few scientists, including myself, who believe in God. As we render unto Caesar, we render unto science to rational understanding of the natural world.
It is not belief in God that rejects science, it is the isms that attempt to claim all realms from liberalism and conservatism that reject vaccines, communism of Lysenko, etc.
