There is a quote in Les Miserables in a section entitled “The Year 1817″ about a scientist who was busy reconciling Mastodons with Moses.

There is a story on Beliefnet about the Shuttle Columbia. All seven astronauts, apparently, were religious to some degree or another. What’s more, they belonged to seven different faiths.
