Well theres plenty of non christian roots of science, the Greeks did science, So did the Chinese, and certainly the Egyptians did. Euclid wrote his book on Geometry too,,,
It goes on and on.

(Dogs earn the title of "man's best friend", Muslims hate dogs,,add that up.)
The key term is "ROOTS" of science. Yes, other cultures share ROOTS of science. Not science fully realized which occurred only within the Christian West. The full realization of the science required a Christian cosmology.
Notice that as the Christian cosmos fades culturally, what has happened to science? It has gotten caught up in the winds of postmodern relativism. Like a plant needs soil, science needs Christianity. Science cannot exist without it, or perhaps some other equivalent cosmology that has not yet existed...but I doubt it.
