A Photon Is Simply Electric Field Of Accelerating Charge.

And this field with all its properties mathematicaly follows from equation describing electric field of stationary charge - when you make a charge to move with acceleration and use special relativity to describe what should non-moving observer detect. Same as magnetic field "emerges" simply as a relativistic part of electric field when electric charge moves by observer with constant velocity (without acceleration).

There is no faith needed to detect electric or magnetic field, or a photon - any proper device can measure it.

In contrast to physical phenomena, god is undetectable, unmeasurable, uninfluencing anything, unpredictable, undescribable, even undefinable. It does not turn a needle of a compass as magnetic field does, or leaves a bunch of dark Ag atoms where it hits a photographic plate (as a photon does).
