Q u o t e:
It is in fact a greater stretch to look at the world and say there is a god. To say you look out and find a greater power in the air is to say you've ignored the tremendous pain and suffering of people.
As for evidence for evolution? The common theory is that evolution didn't occur through small changes over and over as in Darwin's ideas, it actually occurred through something called punctuated equilibrium. What this means is that a few small cosmetic changes happened now and then but somewhere along the line a great big change happened and completely dissolved the need for small changes. Religious scholars as well as secular scholars seem to agree on this issue.
Does it matter? Darwin's theory if far from complete. It has more flaws than the Bible everyone loves to criticize.
The truth is, Darwin never intended his theory to reject the belief in God. In fact, he advised against it. He understood that there would be some that would use his theory to negate the existence of God and that was never his intention. Darwin also admitted his theory was not the only one and was not flawless.
