Do you believe in algebra?

Among the many great tributes and comments on Darwin’s 200th birthday, I particularly liked Alex Palazzo’s suggestion on The Daily Transcript:

Stop asking people if they “believe in evolution”. Every time I hear some dumb ass politician or right wing theological nut say “I don’t believe in evolution”, it makes me cringe. Evolution is not some magical mystical process that you take on faith. Do you ever hear the question “do you believe in algebra?” Instead pose the question “do you understand how evolution works?”
