Both theories/beliefs can not be proven. Why argue one against the other anyway?
University Laboratory of Physiology, Oxford, UK.
Language developed for communication, to facilitate learning the use of tools and weapons, to plan hunting and defence, to develop a "theory of mind" and the tools of thought, and to attract and keep a mate. The adaptations required took place over many millions of years. The first important one was left-sided specialisation of the neural apparatus controlling involuntary emotional vocalisations that began more than 200 million years ago. The next was the development in primates of "mirror neurones" in the pre-motor cortex some 45 million years ago. These enabled the imitation and voluntary control of previously involuntary manual gestures and vocalisations. The third important adaptation was the descent of the larynx, 100,000 years ago, which greatly increased the phonological range of vocalisations that could be made. Thus, language did not develop all at once as suggested by Chomsky, but evolved gradually building upon adaptations originally meeting quite different needs.

Lets say that you had no insight on god/religion. You were never taught by your parents, a preacher , through school or through a book about there being a god or religion. Would you still beleive in creationism or a god for that matter? What other hard evidence would you have if you eliminated all that was drilled into your head from youth about creationism?
science definitely is NOT a religious belief.
A belief is something that you think to be true even when there is an absence of proof whereas science is something you believe to be true ONLY if you have proof.

Because if people only got sicker and sicker the species wouldn't survive.
Just take a look at everything around you. the way things work together to support life. the way the giraffes neck works so it doesnt pass out after bending over to drink from the pool of water. the way the woodpecker can open and close its eyes in between pecks, the way the bombardier beetle uses chemicals to produce controlled explosions as its defense. the way certain animals know how to do certain things or know where to go without learning. the way the human eye is designed. the use of the human tail-bone and its importance.
if you take a look at everything in this world, and you think about how it is designed, you will come to the conclusion that is was designed, not just chance and evolution.
