Theory: a coherent group of general propositions used as principles of explanation for a class of phenomena

Fact: a truth known by actual experience or observation; something known to be true

That is why evolution is a theory and not a fact.



That's why evolution is a fact - it is known to be true by observation. Also, humans have used it for millenia - selective breeding is evolution in which the selection is made by people instead of nature. If evolution didn`t exist, selective breeding wouldn`t work.

The theory of evolution is a theory to explain how the fact of evolution works. The theory of evolution is not evolution itself.

(damnit, got cut off)
It's funny that some people find comfort in "rules" like that... If there is no ultimatum, no form of eternal punishment, they might not have morals.
I heard one devout Christian argue that he truly believed people would not know it is wrong to murder a person unless they read the bible, believed in God, etc. It was actually from that documentary by Bill Maher.
BUT ANYWAY. Evolution is true. Duh.

As for my last post on this thread:

Theory: a coherent group of general propositions used as principles of explanation for a class of phenomena

Fact: a truth known by actual experience or observation; something known to be true

That is why evolution is a theory and not a fact. As I said before, being a theory does not diminish it. Sure, the fossil record shows it to be viable. But the fossil record isn't complete, and won`t be completed within our lifetimes. As I said previously, maybe there`s data that could disprove evolution as we know it, but I am not holding my breath on that one.
