Evolution has nothing to do with creation and little to do with atheism, but I can live with atheism being a religion

Ah not meaning to get off topic but to answer your question YES evolution (in its pure taught form) shares one basic fact with creationism. It shares
the fact that SOMETHING CAME FROM NOTHING.
In the creation story God said let there be light, let there be animals, ect.
In the teachings of evolution it says there was a "big bang", the universe was created, planets/systems just compressed together and some basic
elements JUST HAPPENED to mutate to all the living things that exist today.
Seems to me they seem to me on the very basic level they say the same thing.
One says God started it.
One says a random unexplained "bang" happened and all things just "randomly" just happened.
Now a scientist in developing the scientific method showed with a piece of meat in a sealed jar that flies were not "created" out of nothing. Hence
giving us the scientific method.
But evolutionists like yourself would have us believe that while compelling evidence exists of organisms adapting/mutating/changing over time that the
whole thing was started from nothing.
To add to that all life from eggplant to cat to man came from the same basic "soup mixture" and just "happened" to make all things. Thats odds the
vegas bookmakers would not touch.
That is like saying I throw together the contents of my pantry and magically come up with a thanksgiving dinner complete with the spices combining to
make a turkey.
Now in no way am I saying that all evolution is bunk, far from it.
But I just showed that evolution is taking a page from creationists in DIRECT VIOLATION of perhaps the only scientific rule to exist. SOMETHING CANNOT
COME FROM NOTHING.
To add to this argument evolutionists are still calling it a theory (abit a good one) and not come out with a press conference saying "its now a
proven fact". Hence the continued looking for the "missing link"
Seems like a type of continued "religious quest" if I ever heard of one
Now to tie it back to the OP origional thread.
Evolution, athism, ect is a faith/religion by the very basic definition of the word.
There is items in evolution, athism, science, judism, christianity, the great spagetti monster that are taken at face value AKA FAITH with those
practiioners looking to find the truth/facts to back it up.
The only difference is (ex evolution vs christianity) I am willing to keep an open mind and not be offended if someone believes other than I do.
One side aka athiesm feels if they are offended they can tell everyone else to stop whatever that offends them.
So tell me again how the basis of genesis (bible) is different that the first chapter of a book of evolution called the big bang?
