When I say "truth", I mean "accepted truth". I probably should have been more clear about that.

2) D'Souza is pointing out the absurdity of marketing "truth". By putting up billboards advertising science, the natural assumption is that science somehow feels pressured by the "truth" that religion offers. In today's zeitgeist, "truth" is hardly ever debated. 3) I don't think anyone believes a billboard can completely explain evolution/science. D'Souza is commenting on billboards like "Imagine... no Religion" that offer no invitation to explore further. They are statements presented as truth, when they are still relatively fringe opinions/theories.

1) I feel it is important to point out that the title of the article is "When Science Points To God" and not "Why Science Points To God". D'Souza references an article in Discover Magazine that offers evidence supporting the latter proposition, but D'Souza's article is merely a commentary and the intention is not to offer any addition evidence. That being said, he does offer a summarization of the "fine tuning" argument by stating "...science has for three centuries been showing that man does not occupy a privileged position in the cosmos, and now it seems like he does", but he does not go into very much detail on this or other "proofs".
