Evolution

It turns out that the scientific community is actually in agreement that life has evolved.

Some things I have learned in my studying...

The word "theory" has different meanings between scientists and regular people. It is normally understood to be some sort of "guess" or "hunch" based on a little bit of evidence, but a "theory" as a scientist understands it, actually connotes the highest level of understanding of the natural world. Evolution is not just a "theory" as in "guess" or "hunch" but is backed by loads of proof and evidence, and scientists have as much confidence in the theory of evolution as they do in the most basic scientific knowledge, such as gravity, thermodynamics, heliocentrism, etc. 

Make of it what you will. However, I do not deem it right to put religion and science "side by side" in your mind. It is my opinion that you should accept one or the other, or reconcile the two together, which "reconciling" materialistic evolutionists laugh at, but so it goes. But let's be educated and understand that evolution is science, and as such, it has a right to be taught in public schools. Science is not out to disprove the existence of God. Science simply seeks to explain the natural world.
