I got the same "problem". I consider this a case of "extraordinary
claims require extraordinary proof" - evolution can be studied to a far
greater extent than theological claims. Part of this is that it is a far
more constrained explanation model for observed facts.

Overall, an enjoyable little website. There should really be more sites
like this for other questions (right now I'm reading a book about the
animal rights movement, and it has some interesting examples of how
tricky the issue of deciding what beings have rights and on what basis
is; it would probably make a good "battleground ethics" setup).
