Many on ATS put there trust in what scientists say, without doing the actual research themselves. They may read an article but do not experience it themselves.
It comes down to, who do we put our trust in, or who do we put our faith in?

I don't look for explanations of natural events in my relationship, any more than you'd look to your mother or wife for a reason that trees have leaves or apples fall when you cut their stems.
Well, I have no idea what that was supposed to mean.
the more that I opened myself up to exploring and learning, the more I found evidence of God
And which evidence would this be?
That doesn't even begin to make sense, but I presume that you have a point. Kindly restate it, and I'll be happy to respond.
My apologies then. I was trying to explain the idea of someone that is unaware of how evolution, or anything really, works and attributes it to something such as God whereas someone that has a good understanding of the subject knows that not only is that wrong, but even if we didn't have evidence to the contrary, that simply implying God did it is not a reasonable explanation and has no basis.
I'd like to hear your evidence for God though.
I still find using this "faith in scientists" argument rather silly. This is what an education is for, to understand things.
Experts publish their studies for the public to see, after a peer review
