There are zero competing scientific theories that explain the diversification of life on earth. Evolution is a fact of nature, the Modern Synthesis of Evolution is the theory that explains evolution.<quoted text>
Evolution is just ONE theory. It actually is quite a different realm from that of OTHER theories, that often involve other aspects of the Sceinces, such as PHYSICS.
Why do YOU "deny and dislike " Science "? It is OFTEN, VERY applicable in the "world of musuems" as we know it...even if those applications do NOT constitute the use of the "evolutionary" theory.

Why I find MANY areas of Science to quite interesting-not just one.
There are no other theories. There are ideas, such as Intelligent Design. But they are not theories and serious scientists do not find them to be worth the time of day.
