It is also widely accepted by people of all religions worldwide simply because the evidence is overwhelming and undeniable.

I find it frightening that parents can dictate and limit a child’s education based on nothing but their personal faith in goddidit by magic out of nothing.
How are these children going to get on in the word should for example they arrive at a job interview keen and ready to go but confused about what is fact and what is faith.
