I think it takes just as much faith to believe in evolution as it does to believe in the biblical text of God creating the universe and life.
If you are not educated in the science of evolution... then sure it does.
If you are and you realize that you can see it around you everyday, then it's not that difficult to fathom.
So Rich were you educated in the science of evolution? Do you see it around you everyday?
Could you explain that a little more Rich? What can you see and realize about evolution around you everyday?
My comments were with the idea of what some call the scientific method. The idea of advancing knowledge through formulating a question collecting data through observation and experimenting then testing an answer by those things. The same observations and experimenting should be able to be produced by others. It is sometimes shortened by saying what is observable repeatable.
I clearly see God's handiwork all of the time on a daily basis and I don't think that you need to be educated in the bible to do so.
I have a public education k -12 and graduated with a B.S. from NCSU in the school of Forrest Resources.(many biology and zoology classes) So I have been educated in the science of evolution in as far as it was taught in those institutions. Did you mean a more specific course of study?
"We must bear in mind that just because neo-Darwinian evolution is the most plausible
naturalistic explanation of origins, we should not assume that it is necessarily true.... In
retrospect, it seems as though Darwinists have been less concerned with the scientific question
of accurately explaining the empirical data of natural history, and more concerned with the
religious or philosophical question of explaining the design found in nature without a designer.
Darwin's general theory of evolution may, in the final analysis, be little more than an
unwarranted extrapolation from microevolution based more upon philosophy than fact. The
problem is that Darwinism continues to distort natural science."

"The philosophy of evolution is based upon assumptions that cannot be scientifically verified...http://honradeus.com/argumentCenter/joo ... format=pdf
Whatever evidence can be assembled for evolution is both limited and circumstantial in nature."
- G.A. Kerkut, biochemistry professor at the University of Southampton: (cited in _Biology_,
Keith Graham et al, p.363)
So here are people educated at least in some degree about evolution who might disagree with your statement that if you were educated about evolution you would see it around you everyday.
I understand that most, probably the vast majority of people educated in evolution believe it. But in what way can you see it around you everyday I don't understand.
