Science is not particularly well-suited to deal with problems of human existence that have no enduring logical and or factual solution, such as avoiding death, preventing deception, anticipating catastrophes, overcoming loneliness, finding love or ensuring justice.

Religion endures and thrives because it addresses people's deepest emotional yearnings and society's foundational moral needs.
