If You Can't Explain the Origin of Life Then Why Don't You Just Believe in God?

A question thrown out often in debate between Christians and atheists is “If you can’t explain the origin of the universe and the origin of life then why don’t you just believe in God?” It is often followed up with, “Doesn’t it make more sense to believe in God because all those questions are answered in the Bible. All science has is theories but the Bible has the Truth.” I have answered this question so frequently that I decided to write an article about why the lack of a complete, exact and perfect explanations of the origin of life and the universe do not make it seem logical for me to just believe in God instead of seeking the real answers.

You can read the article here. Please leave a comment (on the article) to help me get a discussion going.

"Doesn’t it make more sense to believe in God because all those questions are answered in the Bible."
Even if we didn't have heavily tested empirical models (theories) that gave us better answers, the bible doesn't give good answers, it isn't even internally consistent, I could use my brain to come up with better explanations that do not involve gods.

We don't believe if god because we have the freedom to refuse any information on unsubstantial evidence.

Does debating creationists work at all? It appears to me, sometimes, that what happens is that we're picking off the religous people who are susceptible to logic, meaning each generation of debaters will be more impervious to reason than the last... Will the creationists reach terminal stupidity soon? My poor, aching brain cells sure hope so.
