Gravity is still accepted


In Florida, evolution has been downgraded to a theory. And this is how it will be taught in what passes for schools in the enlightened sovereign state.


But, don't worry. There is a complete separation of church and state in America and religion has little sway in public affairs.

David,

Evolution is a theory.

In science, a theory is a mathematical or logical explanation, or a testable model of the manner of interaction of a set of natural phenomena, capable of predicting future occurrences or observations of the same kind, and capable of being tested through experiment or otherwise falsified through empirical observation.

Evolution is not a theory, it is an observable phenomenon, like gravity. What Wallace, Darwin and others since have constructed and test are theories regarding the mechanisms, such as adaptive radiation, by which evolution happens.
