There are some in our world that are skeptical of anything scientific, believing that faith in God and scientific inquiry are opposed to one another. This is an unfortunate approach that limits the faculties of reason and observation that God gave us. The Catholic Church is a major supporter of empirical study.
There are also those on the other end of the spectrum who believe that science is the end-all-be-all of truth, that it is always right and answers every question. This is also an unfortunate approach.
The fact of the matter is an excellent way of understanding the perceivable world, but there are plenty of important things in life that are not perceivable. For that, we must look to history, philosophy, art, and religion to answer other questions and to express other truths.
