: I think it is safe to say that there is no conclusive evidence : either way about the exist of God. Science has no rock hard : evidence about there not being a Creator (although what used : to be considered God's work has been proven as being physical : phenomenon); Religion has no hard evidence that there is a : one true creator (although 90% of the human population believes : in a God through faith).

: So with this lack of evidence both ways, isn't it first : prudent to search for an unbiased answer with hard evidence?

: And if this is so, is it right to profess religious faith while : there is this lack of evidence?

I guess we have to believe something while searching, even if we qualify that belief by saying that we do not know everything and thus are continuing to explore and discover. Science is littered with people who, through carefull consideration, came to believe something that they could not totally prove at the time and due to hositle reactions around them, gave it up, only to later find that their belief was backed up by hard evidence. If science has not been able to disprove the exsistance of "God" then it is possible, no matter how much we might dislike it, that science might turn out to prove it.
