when Christians and Muslims accept that, upon review of evidence, their beliefs in their deities are NOT justified and therefore the claims made by their respective religious texts should not be accepted as absolute truth...

... then I will accept the comparison between religion and science.

Dogma is purely cultural stemming from the systems in place. As each system we have...

Religion which requires faith, this faith comes in large from accepting ideas on authority on little or no evidence.

Science requires evidence. If an authority makes a claim without evidence it is shown to be false or not accepted through scientific scruity.

Dogma is much more easily created by acceptance of authority without evidence.

Science says to question it and encourages change.
Religion doesn't.
Its that simple.
