The Faith of the Evolutionist
Many people think that faith is strictly a religious matter and concerns unprovable issues such as angels, heaven and, of course, belief in the creation story. They further feel that belief in evolution is more reasonable, since it is based upon hard and proven facts. But is this true?
Faith is what we add to the evidences we have in order to provide our worldview. The less evidence there is, the more faith we need. Evolutionary scientists often admit that they, too, interpret the world in the context of their faith. Their faith is that everything and everyone got here by means of evolution.
Prof. L. H. Matthews, a well recognized evolutionist, was honored by being asked to write a new introduction for the 1971 edition of Darwin's Origin of Species. In his introduction - speaking of evolution - he admitted, "Most biologists accept it as though it were a proven fact, … although this conviction rests upon circumstantial evidence, it forms a satisfactory faith on which to base our interpretation of nature."
You see, this is nothing more than what Bible believing Christians do when they understand the world in the context of their faith. As Christians, we should not be intimidated into thinking that the faith of the evolutionist is somehow superior to ours for understanding the world!
