Both religion and science are founded on faith — namely, on belief in the existence of something outside the universe, like an unexplained God or an unexplained set of physical laws, maybe even a huge ensemble of unseen universes, too.
Science is built upon the foundation that nature is rational, well it is! Aerodynamics always
work, so now that we've figured it out we can build craft to utilize them to overcome gravity, and these craft work every day of the year because it isn't random, it's rather orderly. Or perhaps not orderly, the word I am looking for is Consistent. It doesn't change it's mind half way through bout the universe mechanics, they remain constant.
With a complete lack of faith I can say that the most logical way for life to variate, that the worlds best and brightest minds all agree has to have occured (and of course IS occuring) is evolution.
Not because I think I know, but because it matchs all the consistent data we have, and no data we find can refute it. So therefore, of ALL options available to me, it is the most accurate choice. Same as I believe in thermodynamics, not out of faith, and I believe in elemental periodicity, not on faith.
"George Bush says he speaks to god every day, and christians love him for it. If George Bush said he spoke to god through his hair dryer, they would think he was mad. I fail to see how the addition of a hair dryer makes it any more absurd."
