A focusing question in Science/religion debates

Has science contributed to be improvement of the worship of the true God? 

Maybe in some very qualified sense, I suppose: helping to build sturdier Cathedrals? Developing better pigments for devotional pictures? All these are beside the point. The answer simply speaking is, of course, no.

This makes the science/religion debate a contest between sides that seem to have forgotten what religion consists in, sc. right worship. As soon as one raises the question of worship it’s hard to see how the scientific outlooks is supposed to add or subtract from this. Intercessory prayer might be one avenue, but intercession isn’t the chief act of worship, and even as an act of worship it is made to a God who can not just modify a natural order but also create it, which latter presumably gives him some preference for.
