It's nonsense to say that Cosmos
is advocating that science should become a religion. It's simply pointing out that scientific thought is not inimical to religious thought in the way that Creationists dishonestly claim it is. The main reason there's so much resistance in America to teaching basic, competent science in our schools is because of that gross misconception that science is the enemy of religion. In fact, science is neither an attack on religion nor an endorsement of religion. It's not about religion any more than dance is about baking. Science is about science.
