But it’s just a theory!


Evolution is just a theory? Well, so is gravity, and I don't see you jumping out of buildings.

Jokes aside, it's easy to see how people get "theories" and "scientific theories" confused. Conjecture satisfies the former, the latter follows strict rules. So humble and precise are scientists that even the most accepted theory isn't referred to as fact. Of all the reasons why I'm an atheist, that's high on my list.
