    As theory when used in terms such as theory of gravity, theory of Evolution etc... indicates that said idea has been thoroughly tested and attained the highest level advancement can reach, it is false to say it is unproven.

    Here's some stuff for you to deny frantically. Evolution the phenomenon is an observable fact. Species have changed over time. Slightly over the short term, hugely over the long term. The modern synthesis theory is the scientific model which explains that fact and predicts new findings. So far it has not been wrong even once. We find new fossils and new living species frequently, but they're always just as predicted by the theory. Until we start finding species, living or dead, that defy the theory, the theory holds. So it is not "proven", though no theory is ever proven, but it is also not disproven, and has remained so for a very long time. Which is more than can be said for the would-be competitors of the modern synthesis theory, most of which fall at that first hurdle by denying the observable fact of evolution.
