How is your chancediditism any better than what you call goddiditism?

Evolution is the opposite of chance. The evolution of living species is the result of the natural laws of physics, chemistry and biology producing complex living organisms. It is inevitable that living species should be produced because they are following the natural laws of the universe that are embedded into the fabric of space-time itself.

Chance is what you get in a casino in Las Vegas. There it is not inevitable that you will win the jackpot. You may go home broke. But by a process of Natural Selection, Evolution will always refine living organisms in a way that those best suited to the environment will survive and reproduce copies of themselves.

Therefore it is not 'Chancediditism' Vs. 'Goddiditism'. Instead it is 'Thenaturallawsofouruniverseism' Vs. 'Godditism'.

And the reason why 'Thenaturallawsofouruniverseism' is more persuasive than 'Goddiditism', is that science has tens of millions of pieces of empirical evidence to substantiate its conclusions. whereas 'Goddiditism' is dependent on faith, independent of evidence to support its conclusion.

Faith is the opposite of science. The scientific method is specifically designed to take faith (and not just religious faith but all kinds of faith) out of its methodology. And the reason that it does that is that it has found that if tested against reality, faith tends to give a poor result when trying to establish the truth about things.
