Feel free to discuss any specifics that you like.
I've been giving some thought to this, your question. Thanks for posing it.
I suspect that most Christians do not find any conflict with most science. Rather, most Christians disagree with a very few particular tenets of science. After all, most Christians drive automobiles, which result from the sciences of chemistry and metallurgy, or use computers, which derive from electronics, mathematics, and so on. I'm pretty sure that most Christians are not flat earthers, nor do they believe in the geocentric universe.
I suspect that many Christians are not comfortable with a very few pieces of science. For example, the age of the earth, which many fundamentalists still believe to be between 6,000 and 10,000 years old, in definite contradiction to the 4.5 billion years that geology and physics indicate, or evolution, however one might define that term.
I look forward to reading the comments of others in response.
