Is atheism predicated partially on the belief in evolution and the current prevailing views of science.

If so, then such a belief is subject to drastic changes as discoveries and theories

 have recently arose that shatter the paradigm that is the foundation of such a belief:

Discoveries keep pushing back the inception of civilization, indefinitely back in time

Evidence of coastal civilizations existing during the ice age are arising in now inundated coastal region due to rising seas.

The concept of a missing link is no longer postulated as a bush of hominids lineages walked  the earth. With what was once considered ancestors, actually being contemporary with postulated descendants. A bush of hominids actually existed as recently as 30,0000 B.C.E.

Though theories of evolution abound no working scientific model exists for the emergence of life.

Our very existence is interwoven with the anthropic principle. As such this has required scientist to postulate the multiverse to explain how the anthropic principle is mindlessly satisfied by nature. However this just substitutes one unfalsifiable believe for another.

In truth, Darwin's world has been shattered and the truth has become intractable. Even as we cope with dark matter and energy. Terms that falsely connote that we have defined them, when in fact they are no more apparent than God. As such new scientific theories continue to emerge based on the inadequacy of the standard model. This will continue into infinitum since, as God there is no means to detect these alleged entities with scientific instrumentation.

Free will is a bear.

No, it's a myth.

Free will doesn't involve rules or commandments - once those enter the scene, one is then given only two choices, much like a computer. Free will involves completely free choice to go in any direction.

RE: "it is a testament of faith as seeing the invisible" - more imaginary friends.

Mark Twain said it best,

"Faith is believin' what you know ain't so."

What if faith means attaching hope or optimism to following an ideal or set of beliefs. The belief that living X way of life is inherently optimistic.

Faith isn't a belief. It's an assumption.

I'm living the dream.

Sorry, Michael, you are in a dream, and if it were me having these thoughts, it would be a frigging nightmare.

Nurse, come quickly, Michael is out of bed again.

Might I suggest restraints?

Mmmmm - that could actually be fun :)
