Except unlike what priests say, you can actually take what a scientist says and try to do it yourself. If you can replicate results, then there's no need for faith in what they say, is there? Priests seem more like they're happy to let you think they have some different grasp on a mystery that you can't, because you haven't been to divinity school and they have. You can't take what they say and check it. If a scientist says "Gravitational effect of mass in space is X and therefore, light bends according to gravity, which means that time is affected by gravity," there's a follow up that says "and you can check it for yourself by using these tools, this formula, that experiment, right in your own house."
Your statement seems a bit of a false equivalency.
