How do I respond to "isn't it true it's just a theory"? about evolution.
Aug 7, 2011

I tend to refer to subjects with the assumption evolution is an accepted fact just as much as I refer to airplanes with the assumption gravity is a fact..

but one time my christian friend asked me "but isn't it true it's just a theory?"

ugh. I don't know how to respond to this. If I say yes, they'll feel confirmed in their feeling that it's just a guess and nonsense. If I say no I'd be lying since it's technically a scientific theory.
