Clever yet deceptive how you bundle "science" and "evolution" as if they are the same. True science does not attack God since the founders of much of our scientific theory were believers in God and in Creation

Evolution is a hypothetical construct for which there is no corroborating data.

A course in the "Philosophy of Science" will show that evolution is not science but a construct without proof.

i.e. evolution is a religion with less proof than the Bible.

A course in truth will tell you that the Theory of Evolution is all science. The TOE is one of the most magnificent Theories ever discovered. It explains how life changes as the Earth changes over millions of years.

It is science, because there are mountains of scientific data collected over 150 years that all fits into the Theory.

A hypothesis is a testable idea. Scientists do not set out to “prove” hypotheses, but to test them. Often multiple hypotheses are posed to explain phenomena and the goal of research is to eliminate the incorrect ones. Hypotheses come and go by the thousands, but theories often remain to be tested and modified for decades or centuries. In science, theories are never hunches or guesses and to describe evolution as “just a theory” is inappropriate.

“Do you believe in evolution?” is a question often asked of biology teachers by their puzzled students. The answer is, “No, I accept the fact that the Earth is very old and life has changed over billions of years because that is what the evidence tells us.” Science is not about belief—it is about making inferences based on evidence
