.. that a god(s) created the universe is a hypothesis, not a theory ..<quoted text>
So true. In reality all a "theory" is is someones "best guess according to what they've been presented with". And so they "believe" what they've been presented with. Or simply put, they "believe" said "theory".
But of course they'll deny that it's "a belief" till they're blue in the face.
If it were a fact it would no longer be a theory. Pretty simple stuff really.**PORTIONS DELETED**
.. if western educators accepted your claim as theory, it would be part of every school's scientific curriculum. This is exactly what Intelligent Design advocates tried to do. They failed because ID is not a theory, only a hypothesis ..
.. words are important. Changing their meaning to fit one's personal agenda hinders the acquisition of knowledge and an understanding of the world we live in ..
