Evolution is one of the best supported scientific theories.
Yup; it sure is!

Yes, best supported
. Evolution, at its core, is championed by people who want to escape the eventuality of final accountability for their deeds in this life. Most supporters simply go along for the ride.
However, interpreting evidence with a view toward reinforcing a preconceived theory such as GTOE is very different from allowing the evidence to guide the theory. The same applies to Creation, BTW: at the core, both the Evolutionist and the Creationist hold their views by faith, since our remotest origins are not subject to true observation-, measureability-, and repeatability-based science.
The operative term to remember for evolution is reinforcement syndrome.
