My belief is that the evolution theory has no absolute facts to support it. Science is based off of knowledge and facts. Why do we continue to teach a theory that has no facts to back it up. If you think it should be taught in schools then give specific examples of facts to support it. Yes, "micro-evolution" happens. We do have different varieties of dogs and different varieties of roses, etc. But there are limits and dogs will never transition into anything but a dog and roses will never transition into anything but a rose, no matter how much time you give it. Also, considering the evolution of the cosmos and the earth, there are no verifiable facts that support the theories. The only explanation is that "given enough time" it could happen. Well that's not a fact, but a belief and should not be taught in schools as if it is a fact.
