Many people think that one has to believe in evolution to be a scientist but this is not true. Modern science was founded by people who believed that God created the universe.
If everything happened by random chance, then everything would be random so you could not study it. But, the universe shows a lot of order. Where did all this order come from?
Faith is not contrary to science. Christians have faith (supported by a lot of evidence) that God exists and that He created the universe. Atheists have faith too. They have to have faith that everything happened by chance and that there is no God. If our Christian faith is misguided, we lose nothing, because random chance cannot hold a grudge.
However, if the atheists are wrong, then they have offended the Creator by not giving Him credit for his creation. They will lose everything.
