The thing is: scientists don't. They don't claim to know what's "outside" the universe. But out of repeatable observations they have evidence that the laws of physics work the same way here on Earth as they do a hundred thousand light-years away. So at least scientists get a pretty good idea of what's going on in the fish tank, while religion rely their "truth" on a book written by humans a some thousand years ago with no repeatable evidence.

What evidence┐

So, I still feel Science is as blind as religion. By its own admission, the vastness of whats out there is incomprehendable. Therefore, science needs to also accept that there are forces out there that are also incomprehendable/unimaginable.
Science does accept that it knows and sees only little of what is there. It only tries to see a little more step by step while religion claims to have "the truth(TM)". Big difference in my book.
