I Don't "Believe" in Evolution

How pathetic is it that the English language uses the same word, "believe," to describe both religious leaps of faith and acknowledgement of the explanatory and predictive value of scientific theories? "Believe" in the Nicaean creed ("I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth...") serves an entirely different purpose than in "I believe in evolution."

It is precisely this ambiguity that people like Bruce Chapman of the Discovery Institute seek to exploit with their sophistry.
