Evidence shows gradual increases in shell thickness over several million years within a number of mollusc fossil species preserved in sediments along the west shore of the Chesapeake Bay. This increased thickness was an evolutionary response to shell-drilling predation by carnivorous moonsnails. Such changes in fossils through time provide strong support for evolution. Evolution is the best scientific explanation for the sequence of fossils found in the world's sedimentary rocks. In this essay, the author, a committed Christian married to an ordained Presbyterian minister, reflects on science, faith, creationism in general, and the intelligent design controversy in particular. She discusses the differences between science and religion, reveals why creationism and intelligent design are religion rather than science, and explains how she reconciles her research and teaching on evolution with her faith.

Keywords:   evolution, intelligent design, science, faith, creationism, religion, moonsnails
