I don't agree with this at all, but I think the whole "it is religious" thing is based on the fact that so many people claim they think evolution
is right but do not actually know what evolution is. So, in essence they are putting "faith" in something just like the religious people do.
You need to understand science as a whole, to understand what scientific method in order to understand there is no such thing as "faith" in
There is so much information out there, that a person can never know everything at once. There is simply too much information. Different fields are
getting more and more specialised every day, which creates even more information.
For understanding evolution, big bang theory or even computer science fully, it would take years of learning for the average person, if not more, as
there are multiple fields combined which create the scientific theories and facts (in science, when something has reached the status of theory, it is
already near to being a fact and has very significant evidence to support it behind it).
If you understood the method how everything in science is derived and proven, you would understand my point. This is not faith that I am putting into
different scientific largely recognised theories, I simply trust the method how everything is derived. At the end every technology and item we buy is
there thanks to science.The same method is used, whether it comes to computers, radios, TVs, cars, the same method has put a man to air, even to
space, just as it has been used for gaining evidence for evolution.
Just one paper (even when peer-reviewed) can be a fake, but sooner or later everything like that will be debunked, as that is what science is about,
finding out how the world around us works. When there is something vast majority of some very smart people from all around the world, out of many work
with these day to day, recognise and are not able to debunk (if evolution could be debunked, it would have done already, I can guarantee you), why do
you think someone who spent a few hours in Youtube or read just one book could debunk something like that easily...
You need to understand the method behind scientific theories, then you would understand the reason why it is not a faith, when people who do not
understand these fully, agree with them. They do not put faith in the theory, they KNOW the method which derived it was trustworthy, as at the end
every time you turn your computer on or drive a car or even walk around in some mall, you put the trust in the science behind it, as otherwise the car
might explode, mall collapse or the computer catch fire. It is the engineers behind these items, that created such complex systems using scientific
method to create these.
