    For a long time, science and religion have always battled against each other. For example, the topic of evolution in science contradicts how the world was simply made by God. As far as the Muslim world goes, religion has rapidly taken over their identity and overall way of living life. So the decline of science in the Muslim world is not really all that sup rising as religion has taken over life’s aspects. The Muslim world has increasingly adopted religion as their perspective on life, which can clearly reject the more logical, opposed to the blind faith of religion, perspective of science.
