Why do religious people require evidence for science, but for your religion all your require is faith?

I find the hypocrisy of this kind of weird. So religious people require evidence for scientific claims, which is good. You should require it, strive to understand it. But when you get an explanation simple enough for a high school freshman to understand it you refuse to accept it, not because you can disprove it... show more I find the hypocrisy of this kind of weird. So religious people require evidence for scientific claims, which is good. You should require it, strive to understand it. But when you get an explanation simple enough for a high school freshman to understand it you refuse to accept it, not because you can disprove it but because it must be wrong or else your chosen religion is wrong.

But where is the evidence for your religion? That you never question. That you simple accept on faith. Just like that. Take other religions for instance. When it comes to other religions you need primary sources for the existence of their prophets, your require evidence for their so called miracles and you take nothing at face value. Ironically you become quite atheistic towards other religions. But when it comes to your religion all you need is faith.

I'm sure you will say that you have evidence. But if you really did there wouldn't be hundreds of religions on the planet. Feelings, speaking to yourself, your personal experience in a dream, someone's near death experience or using your holy book to prove your religion is not evidence.

So why is that? Why do you need evidence for evolution, age of the Earth, size of the universe but you require only faith for your religion?
