Aren't you among those who maintain that science cannot confirm anything?<quoted text>
Accepting evolution is not faith based. No faith is required. It is evidence based. It is based upon the scientific method which has earned respect from its past results.
Religion on the other hand is the opposite of that. There is no correlation between being religious and being good. In fact statistics indicate the opposite is true. More likely to go to prison, there is no doubt about that one, it is huge, more likely to get divorced if you are religious. Probably also more out of wedlock births and abortions among the religious too. Those stats are a little harder to find, but it only makes logical sense.
Regarding religion, you provide no data, but I happen to think you are datalessly correct, at least for the most part, on this one. I have virtually no respect for religion as the world generally knows and practices it. The religion of the Bible is another matter, not practiced by almost all of those professing a relationship to it. In fact, the Bible itself has disdain for what the world generally knows as religion (Revelation 18).
