You also tend to believe things based solely upon scientific authority. Perhaps you are not interested in knowing why certain theories are true, or how they can be proven, but simply trust the research of the scientists. This is probably the way the majority of people receive their scientific knowledge. It is not at all uncommon, and it is thoroughly better than trusting the likes of people who produce non peer-reviewed research on Intelligent Design which no sane biologists support. However, should you wish to truly understand evolution, it would help to know exactly how it is proven and how it could be potentially falsified. It is proven by the large array of facts we have observed that fit the framework, such as the presence of vestigial organs and structural excesses, the order of organisms found in the fossil record, and the similarities between biological parts of descendants and ancestors. Obviously, were we to find facts which falsified these predictions of evolution, the theory would be in trouble. Finding a fossilized mammal in the precambrian, for instance, would thoroughly falsify the theory, because the nearest possible ancestor of mammals, on an evolutionary view, would exist millions of years into the future. Furthermore, if we found no similarities between species, genetic or otherwise, we could reason that they were not descended from each other.
Of course, you should be proud of yourself for not succumbing to the dangers of Intelligent Design. Even though you tend to view science as a dogmatic, absolutely certain enterprise, you are at least wary enough to realize when something is blatantly non-scientific, as is the case with Intelligent Design. In comparison to you, creationists and the supporters of Intelligent Design have a much worse grasp on the scientific method, and use their flawed ideas of science to produce "theories" which cannot be tested or proven in anyway.
