Though the mission of science is to explore and explain. It doesn't disapprove the existence of religion, it simply hasn't found a way to explain it yet. It's mainly the way how people take the explanations, hence why some big religious groups hate science because, let's be honest, science is a jerk but a good kind of jerk.

Well, yeah, it hasn't disproved the existence of religion cause religion exists. But I understand what you meant.

Science is only a jerk because it questions what people believe in. I'd much rather have prominant sciencetific exploration in society, then the idiocy we call religion. Now I'm not saying I hate those that practice religion, I just disapprove of them. Religion will do nothing but hold the human race back. I mean hell, this isn't the 1800's anymore. We don't need a way to soothe ourselves when death is imminent, and really for every good action that is done through religion, quadruple that are terrible actions, justified by someone's religion. On top of that, people have greatly altered it from being a moral compass, to, like I said, a justification for their horrible actions. "I'm murdering all these children not because I want to, but because God is telling me to, and his will is almighty" as an example.

TL;DR: The human race needs to move on from religion, as it's preventing our growth as a species. Imagine where we would be if the dark ages of science had never occurred.

Though I understand how you want to bring out your point, I am obliged to give another perspective into your argument.   
You see, science would've never come to exist if religion would have never been present.   
Science makes you think "why?", "how?" and "what if?". Religion is the perfect basis for those questions. One good example in fact is how Galileo Galilei found out that Earth was round. He questioned back in his time, why everyone thought the Earth is flat? How can it be flat? What if it isn't flat? Of course religion is notorious for trying to counter the thesi of science, but every time that has happened humanity found a way to go around that and in the end religion allowed them, though a bit too late.   
TL;DR: Religion and science have been sharing a working symbiosis, and the one can't live without the other. Though that's a personal point of view, I understand if there are counter arguments against this.

Yes, religion was brought on to answer questions people could yet not understand. Humans have evolved to be curious, so it was only natural for our ancestors to come up with explanations that seemed reasonable to them. But as science has progressed, we've found out more and more, and religion no longer plays part in the discovery and further understanding of things. It's obsolete, and does nothing but hold us back now.

I somehow completely neglected that idea and thought that anon meant that overall it has been useless.
Pardon my misreading, I am agreeing on this thesis then.
