Michael Zimmerman is the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Butler University in Indianapolis. He is also the founder of Evolution Sunday where Christians hold special services to celebrate Charles Darwin's theory of evolution.
To Zimmerman, the biblical account of creation is allegorical. "Creationists fear that if you believe evolution, you're an atheist," he says. But he believes that trying to prove God exists by using the intelligent design argument signifys lack of faith.
"If you have enough faith, you don't need science to prove God exists, and science can't prove this anyway," he says.
That's exactly what religion is, faith in something you can't see or touch, faith in a God that can exist only by people believing that a God exists.
I don't believe in anything much except that we have the ability to take a leap of faith and believe in ourselves.
