Good drawing and propaganda design (though using an outdated picture as representation of evolution) but it doesn't really address the other half of the theme, because part of the reason science IS awesome is that it doesn't require belief. Could reference supporting with evidence instead. As a grad student, still hoping to see a print with this cool idea!
IMHO, the reference to how science is amazing is more implicit than explicit, but I've always found evolution to be the epitome of how amazing science is: serendipity, combined with deductive reasoning and close examination of evidence, resulted in an unexpected discovery that changed the way many look at the very meaning of life. That's pretty cool!
Aside from Ramy's shirt, I disagree (in a nuanced way) that science doesn't require belief. For example, I've seen only a fraction of the fossil record with my own eyes, but I believe that the rest exists. I've not seen the evidence for the Higgs boson, but I believe that it exists. I've definitely not seen the Krebs cycle in action with my own eyes. If someone walks into my office and is capable of picture matching and object identification, but produces agrammatical speech, I might diagnose damage to Broca's area because I believe that the posterior inferior frontal gyrus contains a portion of brain critical for expressive language. (To be fair, someone else can verify this based on MRI, but even then, I'm reliant on a belief in imaging and the science behind neuroradiology, because I definitely can't read MRIs!)
