Then show me a statement that theory is defined as 100% certainty.

If not, then you are foolish looking.

And it's one of our most messed up theories. totally incomplete. we can't even get it to jibe from classical to quantum physics (big to small for you, xxooxx)

still it works good enough for nasa to use our gravitational culculations to land a used up probe on a spinning, tumbling asteroid...freakin' amazing incomplete theory, that ol' bugger gravity!

You confuse the "LAW" of gravity, with the "THEORY" of gravity, which are totally two different concepts.

Or maybe, what you read or heard were said by men trying to influence others into going certain political ways... so they made up things.

Have you really consider all thing?
Politicians are all liars? Is that your point?

I agree.

Obama is just Bush. This is his fourth term. Not a dime's worth of difference...

The same is true of church politics. The New Testament is made up of many competing propaganda works. Written long after Jesus death. None of it based on reality.

"no theory is 100% certain"

Isn't that what I just said?

So what your point? Somebody told you that,(with no doubt, a political agenda in mind) so you believed them LOL!

But the words stand on their own merit...this is how you tell the difference.

We have no theories that are 100% certain, do we?

Correct. Theories attempt to explain facts. They do not become facts.

We all know gravity exists. So do evolution and the big bang. There is still debate amongst physicists about how/why gravity works.

So it is still a theory.

In fact...if evolution was 100% certain, it would be called the "law of evolution", and not the "theory of evolution".

No. A theory is an idea about how something which is a fact (for example evolution) works. If someone comes up with a new understanding of how it works that is a new theory (about how the same fact works).
