And does his misuse of "fact" forgive your ignorance of "theory"?
All I have said is that he is wrong in calling the theory of evolution a "fact". That is an inaccurate and invalid statement. And it sounds like you agree with me on this point.
Oh no, that is definitely not all that you said.
To wit: Evolution is far from a "fact". It is a theory, no different from scores of other scientific, economic, etc., theories.
You heretofore have expressed a much higher degree of "argumentative integrity". Why are you slipping now?
Let me put it this way. Consider two theories:
Theory 1: Man evolved from the apes over millions of years.
Theory 2: Goverment deficits result in higher real interest rates.
Those are both theories. You can collect evidence to support both. And you can also find evidence to refute both. But neither one is a fact. And no matter how hard anyone tries to spin it, Theory 1 above will always be a theory. It will never be a "fact".
