Well, just what do you call a theory then? Until proven in empirical experiments, that is.
Evolution is how we homo sapiens came into existence in our current form in 2012. Scientific fact. No doubt, no debate. It is an acknowledged scientific fact on the same level as gravity.
And most of the same people think that people on earth are only about 5000 years old and dinosaurs are a fraud that never existed.
If you want to believe, have faith that God works in mysterious ways etc. thats your personal belief and thought process. Nothing wrong with that. You have a right to believe anything you want, but, its not Science. And I never understood why couldn't evolution have been God's plan?
Irrelevant to my point. It's a straw man. I wasn't arguing if it was science or not. I said we don't need mo stinkin' Science Committee or any litmus test in govt. The latter is exactly what you are advocating.
Science, if anything, needs to be free from govt.
