There is such a thing as the preponderance of the evidence. If evolution is correct in general then there should be predictable consequences. One can test to see whether those predictions can be confirmed. So far, they have been.

From a reasonable perspective, yes, but we are dealing with faith, a school of thought that can apply reason at its discretion and whim.

My favorite religious concept of all time is damnation and salvation. Can't ever be proved or disproved, but what a great cattle prod it is.
