← The Fact of and Facts About Evolution

SteveN's Avatar Jump to comment 17 by SteveN

Just to emphasis Neodarwinian's point, evolution is both a fact and a theory in the same way that we have the 'fact' of gravitational effect and a 'theory' (albeit rather weak) of how it operates. I suspect that even if there had never been a Darwin or a Wallace and nobody else in the intervening 150 years had come up with their 'dangerous idea', we would still have the overwhelming evidence for the fact of evolution but no solid theory of the mechanism.
