The recent editorial of The News-Sentinel that was supportive of the recent decision made by the Ball State University president to preclude teaching creation in a science class stated that religion requires faith; science seeks proof.
I can accept that, but let's apply that criterion to evolution. To prove a theory is true, true science requires the facts be testable, repeatable and observable.
I would suggest evolution fails on all three of these criteria.
Strong proponents of the evolution theory understand there is no observational scientific basis for evolution, so they have successfully won in the courtroom, arguing for separation of church and state.
Because they have changed the argument from discussing the merits of creation versus evolution to one of separation of church and state, they have not had to divulge the fact that evolution is also a faith-based view.
