Why are religious people learning?

Why are religious people learning? It has been a question worrying me for a long time. We know the fact that science and religions are totally against each other, maybe not totally but most of the time. However, it appears to be that all religious people are studying science, which is astonishing because what they have been doing is basically trying to find a way to protest their religions. Christianity, for example, the bible says that God creates the world in 7 days, hopefully I were correct, giving lives to all species including humans, us. In contrast, scientists have scientifically proven that Earth, the planet we are living one, was formed around 4.6 billion years ago, and all livings things we have seen today, according to Darwinism, were due to evolution. These facts contradict each other. But, why would religious people study science that obviously contradicts their beliefs. It seems very interesting to me.

The Holy Bible and science are not contradictory to each other, in fact science supports the Holy Bible. God gives us wisdom to discover and uncover truths and that is science. God did not give us everything right away. From the leaves that God sewed for Adam and Eve, now we have clothing, etc. It is very much different if we say evolution. Evolution is a religion, not science. This is the religion of those who do not believe in God. Naturally, as evolution is a religion which is opposed to God, evolution and the Holy Bible contradict each other and it is impossible for them to unify.

I don't consider Evolution is a religion but a belief, and people should realize the differences between them. If science does support the Bible, why is the earth and all the creatures and lives in this world not created in 7 days but billion years according to Bible? In addition, I don't know about other religions, but one thing I have found offensive according to my Christian friends is that the Bible says that one who does not follow Christianity will not go to the heaven, hopefully this have not been incorrectly interpreted. To me, this statement shows the arrogance and its discrimination against other people or religions who are not Christian.

Can the Bible agree with science? To answer this question, one must first know what science is. Science is man's fragmentary knowledge toward the laws of God's perfect creation and sets this as theorem and record. Therefore, in actuality, the Bible fully matches with science, because the Creator of the universe is God and the author of the Bible is also God. How can God's words and God's works in the universe not match? before using science to examine the Bible, one must first have a requirement: that every kind of knowledge in the Bible can only be mutual proof with the assured and unchanging theorems in science, one cannot use the general inference and theory to criticize the Bible. Because whether inference and theory are reasonable is uncertain, how can one use unsettled cases in science to assess the absolutely true Bible?

If so, I think that God explains everything according to your saying, so there is no need for us to learn and discover due to the fact that all the science is created by God, and supposedly what we, the people, have been doing for centuries is just told by God. But, astonishingly, God told Darwin to uncover the truths said in the Bible.
