"Just a Theory"
When believers in creation and believers in evolution argue (or discuss), the conversation often turns to evolution's status as a "theory". It usually goes something like this:
Creationist: "Evolution is just a theory"
Evolutionist: "So is the Theory of Gravity"
But according to this article, there isn't really any agreement in what constitutes a "theory" and even, what separates science from "psuedo-science".
There's more to this discussion that sound-byte slaps. Epistemology and the Philosophy of Science are worth considering too.
