agreed. However, I think it is the author's intention to argue semantics about the term "Faith". He will likely argue that the definition of "Faith" includes one that describes it as "A strongly held belief" and therefore will try and equivocate an acceptance of evolution to "Faith" in God. That's why I asked for his definition since the biblical definition doesn't fit his premise so it would be self defeating in that sense.
If, however, he is trying to go down the route of arguing based on the vaguest definition possible, then you can attack his religious beliefs as being as refined as a child's belief in the tooth fairy. You can make the case that every "belief", including the flying spaghetti monster, a holy tea kettle, etc.... has the same value as his belief in God. Thus every belief must be protected with the same legal/social standing as religious beliefs.
at this point, to deny evolution is a matter of blind faith or simple ignorance.
it is on the same level of denying man made climate change or a spherical earth.
please define faith in this context. Are you using the biblical definition of faith or the oxford dictionary version?
mouth to anus with 4 limbs that may change external appearance but have identical nearly internal structures and mechanisms.
the species are all very similar. whether it is a boned fin, a wing, or a hand the bone structure is identical: 1 bone, 2 bone, many wrist bones, 5 sets of finger bones.
Google image some xrays.
our brains seek out differences but the similarities are mindblowing if you look for them, like the universal mouth to anus configuration of all animals above cephalopods which broke off very very early.
