1. I do not think that either side of the issue has definate 100% proof, and reguardless on what side of the fence you are on requires some ever so small amount of faith in your side of the arguement.

This is true, but it is also true of ANY scientific theory. It is not the realm of Science to "prove" anything. That is reserved for Mathematics. All that science can do is support a theory with enough evidence so that it reaches the point where it can be accepted as fact. The Theory of Evolution is one of those. Also it is important to realize that there is no "Theory of Creationism" and even if the TOE (Theory of Evolution) is shown to be flawed, it doesn't confirm Creationism.

If I personally am going to pick a side and use faith, my faith goes to God a creationism.

One of the things that people generally fail to understand is that the TOE says NOTHING about the existence/non-existence of god(s). There are a great number of people that are able to accept the TOE and still worship their god without any problem. This isn't a "either/or" situation.
