Logic and reason must always start with assumptions, and the assumptions behind science are, at their root, religious assumptions. Our core beliefs not only determine how we expect the universe to work; they also and just as importantly supply the motivation for the science we do, and indeed they determine why we as individuals choose to be scientists. This interplay, including the role of faith (and God) can be seen in how science developed in the medieval universities, during the Reformation, and even into the 20th century with the revolutions in modern physics.
