Religion - a cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith.
A good friend of mine asked me the other day how I can just blindly accept something, (God,) that cannot be proven. First I told him that a firmly believe that the existence of God can be, and has been proven. Then I told him, "I think it's funny that people are so quick to criticize Christians for accepting things by faith, but those same people will so quickly accept evolution as fact."
"When people visit a museum they are confronted by bits and pieces of bones and other fossils neatly arranged in glass cases. These are often accompanied by pictures representing an artist's impression of what the animals and plants could have looked like in their natural environment. Remember, no one dug up the picture, just the fossils. And these fossils exist in the present. For example, in Tasmania there is a sandstone bed containing millions of pieces of bones, most of which are no larger than the end of your thumb. The evolutionists have placed a picture at one particular excavation so that tourists can see how the animals and plants lived in the region "millions of years ago." You can stare at those pieces of bones for as long as you like, but you will never see the picture the scientists have drawn. The picture is their story of their own preconceived bias, and that, ultimately, is all it ever can be."
The fact is that the entire THEORY of evolution is built upon unstable science and thoughts about what scientists think MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED. They have found bones that they think MIGHT support the theory, but every time they find another set, it is later proven to be either fake, or mis-understood.
To believe in evolution is to blindly accept, (by faith,) stories from mere men. At least my religion involves the acceptance of one who is bigger than I could ever be. Given the choice between the words of God, and the words of men, I'll take God's word any day.
