Science didn't kill God as you can't kill someone who doesn't actually exist

If God exists, science is impotent to do any damage. It can erode faith, discredit religion, but can't really impact an omnipotent being.

On the flip side, if God does not exist, science can hardly kill a nonexistent being.

Science didn't kill god. Science wounded god. But there are plenty of believers. Still a majority of believers in most places. I don't think that god will last though. Two, maybe three generations and (obvious) religions will become a minority. I suspect new religion-like structures will take their place though, or political ideologies will be enshrined in new religious ideas. And it's entirely possible that as we near the technological singularity, the rate of advancement and growth will become so hard for unmodified humans to comprehend that religions or religion-like structures will appear to make more sense and become more popular, even if they will lack any ability to apply power over whatever whirlwinding deus ex machina we create.
