Oh, I care about science. I find it fascinating for its own sake, and I also recognize the amazing contributions that scientific knowledge can make toward improving our quality of life. Biology, including the theory of evolution, is no exception.
But if you want to convince me to give up atheism and believe in your religion, don’t waste your breath trying to argue against evolution. It’s not even because you’re wrong — although I think you are. Mountains of evidence in favor of evolution have been accumulated, and the scientific consensus is clear. You’re not going to convince me by claiming that there aren’t any transitional fossils, or that the eye is too complex to have evolved. You’re always welcome to try to defend positions I think are mistaken, though. I’m normally interested in the perspectives of people who have reached different conclusions than I have.
On the topic of theism versus atheism, though, the real point is that evolution doesn’t matter. You might as well have come up to me and said, “So you’re an atheist, eh? Well, have you considered… blueberry pie?” It’s just completely irrelevant. Even if you somehow succeeded in showing that the theory of evolution is totally, utterly wrong in every aspect, you wouldn’t come close to providing a smidgen of evidence for the existence of some supernatural being. It’s not as though there are only two alternatives, evolution and belief in god/s. There are any number of other naturalistic hypotheses we could make. And in my experience, people arguing against evolution are rarely arguing for simple deism; they typically jump from “the bacterial flagellum is irreducibly complex!” to “Jesus is the son of God and he died for our sins, according to all the particular dogmatic stipulations of my sub-denomination of Christianity and the specific translation of the Bible that I prefer.” It’s a breathtakingly blatant non sequitur.
My atheism does not depend on my belief that the theory of evolution is true. If you want to convince me that your god exists, it’s not enough to argue against random concepts I happen to believe. You have to offer some positive argumentation that actually supports your side.
