Is Evolution a Religion?

David Gibbs III, the lawyer that represented Terry Schialvo's family and friends has written a legal memo in which he argues that by using evolution as the only method of explaining biological diversity, there is no room for alternative "philosophical" perspectives. Philosophical?? He is quoted as saying:

"Making this gigantic jump moves the evolutionary hypothesis from the realm of science into a philosophical faith-based belief system," Gibbs writes in the five-page memo, which he sent to the state Board of Education last month. "It has fallen into the same trap of which science has accused religion. It posits its entire interpretive rationale on something which is unobservable and untested."

Unobservable? Untested? Yeah, that'll fly. Another example of a well-meaning Christian in WAY over his head.
