If evolution is a religion, which I assert it is, then why is it not given the same treatment as other religions?


If pigs can fly, which I assert they can, then why are they not issued with aircraft identification numbers?

One reason that I can think of is that the assertion is false. As far as I know, the religious parts of evolution, if there are any, are not taught in science classes, the same as the religious parts of other religions are not taught in science classes. So what's the problem?

Pigs can fly. Just not naturally.


And evolution is a religion in the same sense, an artificial one. You can catapult a pig into the air in a trajectory that superficially resembles "flight" and you can twist evolution into a caricature that superficially resembles a religion. Is that your best argument that evoluion "is" a religion?
