Fine, then remove the unproven 'theory' of evolution from science classrooms. I have no problem with it. Thanks.

By the way you emphasized the word 'theory' is sounds like you think that theories are somewhat less than what should be taught. This shows a lack of understanding of how science works. No problem, this is common among creationists. Let me explain it to you.

Nothing in science is based on proof, or proofs, but on statistical analysis of evidence that provides us with a level of confidence that the theory is valid. So, number one, asking for proof is erroneous. Asking for evidence would be correct.

A theory is made up of a number of hypotheses, from one to however many are developed, that have been tested and found to give a high level of confidence. In other words, a theory has already been tested and verified. As you can see this pretty much is counter to your statement about 'unproven theories'.

Then, based on your misunderstanding of scientific theories and proof, ALL scientific theories, not just the Theory of Evolution, must be removed. There is not a single, proven scientific theory in existence. Never has been and never will be. Can you tell me why?

unproven 'theory' of evolution

A theory in science will always be a theory in science no matter how much evidence is accumulated. Thusly, gravitational theory will forever remain a theory.

Perhaps you should consider entering a science classroom before exposing your ignorance about science.

Should we remove all "unproven theor[ies]" from science classrooms (in which case we would remove all theories period, as well as all laws, facts and principles if we remove all "unproven" ideas whatsoever) or just the ones you personally do not like?
