The difference

To be on the same level as science 2 independent religions had to have started a few thousand years ago on both ends of the world and write essentially the same book with at least a few divine proclamations that are EXACTLY the same.
Even today if a muslim would write down a vision of god and it could be verified that a christian writes down the exact same vision (with no links between them) there would be at least something to study and a solitary little feather in the evidence cap of believer.

Scientists on the other hand do this regularly, most large advances (evolution see Alfred Russel Wallace) were discovered independently, the first discoverer or the more media savvy discoverer gets full credit but it does not mean that others did not come to the same conclusion without knowing that the discovery had already been made.
