Why debate religion but not science?

After reading more I've learned the debate at Messiah is actually designed to be a series of one-on-one interviews with the media. Wired wrote an interesting article asking why the candidates are willing to discuss issues in a religious context, but not in a scientific one. Hear hear.

We spent the last eight years under a religious zealot. That didn't get us anywhere good. One of the reasons I support Obama is because he is erudite. I hope he won't bow to religious leaders on any issues which are important to me (climate change, stem cell research, peak oil, renewable energy, etc.)
