Facts are those persistent things that both sides can use. Such as the Earth is spherical. Even Flattie Hollie was proven wrong in this forum. She had to go to Jimmy for more ammo. In fact, your atheist scientist, Neil deGrasse Tyson was wrong about how far back flat Earth-ness had been -- The Medieval Flat Earth .indent]
15 Answers to Creationist Nonsense

[.....]Opponents of evolution want to make a place for creationism by tearing down real science, but their arguments don't hold upwww.scientificamerican.com
1. Evolution is only a theory. It is not a fact or a scientific law.
Many people learned in Elementary School that a theory falls in the middle of a hierarchy of certainty -- above a mere hypothesis but below a law.
Scientists do NOT use the terms that way, however.
According to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), a Scientific theory is "a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that can incorporate facts, laws, inferences, and tested hypotheses." No amount of validation changes a theory into a law, which is a descriptive generalization about nature.
So when scientists talk about the theory of evolution -- or the atomic theory or the theory of relativity, for that matter -- they are NOT expressing reservations about its truth.
In addition to the theory of evolution, meaning the idea of descent with modification, one may also speak of the Fact of evolution."..."
Face it. There are no facts in evolution such as descent with modification. Nothing is observable.
What you should do with the evos here is discuss things with them and find OBSERVABLE evidence. Back up your "descent with modification." Then you'd have a better argument. But that takes brain work and you're too dumb for that.
