I think everyone needs a lesson in what a theory actually is. A theory is a scientific hypothesis that is substantiated by evidence. There are very few true facts. There is more evidence to support evolution than to support the theory of gravity, yet people don't float out into space. I think it's a lack of understanding that is driving this entire issue.
