Yawn, more circular reasoning, and arguments from authority - you're merely referring to evidence via Francis Bacon's scientific method, so this isn't you having tested or gathered the evidence, or invented the theories of physics yourself, just appealing to the authority of the scientific method. Even during the era in which it originated, Bacon's method (or empericism) wasn't the only school of knowledge, and was opposed by other "secular" theories.There are literally thousands of tons of evidence supporting the theory of evolution, and zero evidence for the existence of God.
Which one do you choose to believe in?
So honestly, I'm getting tired of people being patently ignorant on the history of their own culture. By the same definitions of "evidence" used by Bacon's method, then Charles Darwin doesn't exist - since his existence isn't repeatable or testible in any way, so in practice, no one honestly uses Bacon's method to approximate every type of knowledge in existence - it's apparent that they demand one definition of evidence for God, but not for other things which people believe in on faith, or take for granted - which wouldn't "exist" either within the scope of Bacon's method.
Physical theories are just constructs built from mathematics, so in that regard, they're arguably no different than any other type of constructed theory, to begin with (such as theories of law, government, business, or... music).
