Do realize it's called "faith" for a reason.

Religion is called "faith." Why? Because there's no real evidence that God exists. There is a lot of circumstantial evidence.

Furthermore, although religious people may "prove" that evolution isn't real through various arguments (You weren't there, etc.), that DOES NOT mean god exists. Even if evolution wasn't real, how does that prove the existence of God? It could be the Flying Spaghetti Monster for all we know.

So in the future, do treat religion as what it is. Faith. Not fact.

Are you saying that evolution requires faith and is not fact?

There is a certain amount of faith.

However, we have scientific evidence that evolution happened, through fossils, birds with different traits, etc. Just "You weren't there" proves nothing.

On the other hand, there is no real evidence for the existence of God except for circumstance.

I guess I was a bit thrown off a bit by this comment:

But if God reveals Himself to an individual, why would that individual not consider the existence of God as fact?
