Secondly your implying that because we search for truth, God exists, which implies that he is truth, which to be completely honest with you is a bit of a weak argument.
Thirdly the scientific laws are just theories, based on a paradigm that we invented for ourselves. Our model of reality gives rise to these theories and laws and if our model of reality, the assumption we make about the functioning of the world, is innaccurate, everything based on it is innaccurate. Which means it's the core beliefs, not the beliefs that arise from them that are important.
Religion and science both arise from assumptions...
About science, I agree that some assumptions of our world is inaccurate. Since we're not all knowning beings, we can only have appromixation to the truth, but we can get closer to it.
If anything, we can see that we can measure the world somewhat objectivly by the results we get. Otherwise, we would not have nukes or computers.
As for god, I never have the need to justify god. Because it is a futile exercise to dispute the existance of god. There are no harm in believing in the existance of god. So....I just believe there is a god.
And so god become incorporated into my belief system. It become fundamental.

Well, I was just stating my beliefs.
