- Organisms have offspring.
- Offspring share some traits from the parents and differ from one and other.
- Some differences help the offspring to have more of their own offspring.
- Over generations some traits spread throughout a population while others do not.
- Some entity, that is usually called god, created the universe and all that is in it.
- Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
- You are here for a reason.
When I look at natural selection and evolution I see a mountain range of evidence both in the historical record and in the lab and field today. What I do not see is any information about the existence or lack of a god. Because god is not described by the system cannot be taken to mean that god doesn't exist or is uninvolved. If I study how a faucet works by the washer being squeezed into place to stop the water flow, I may not talk about the municipal water authority. There may be one and it may deliver water to that faucet. There may not be one and the faucet may be attached to a bucket full of rain water. Its outside of my focus.
Science tends to be pragmatic and focus on what can be proved even if it may take some effort. When science leaves god out of it, it is not an attack, it is recognition that science isn't the right tool to explore this aspect of the human experience. Evolution describes a mechanism nothing more. If there is randomness or a god behind it, it is outside of the realm to which the natural selection is focused.
Given this situation, why and how could science threaten faith? It would seems akin to addition or subtraction threatening faith?
