I recently read someone’s claim [as borrowed from Stephen Jay Gould] that evolution is both a fact and a theory. The article concluded by saying:
“No evolutionary scientist questions whether evolution (in any of the senses mentioned) occurs and has occurred. The actual scientific debate is over how evolution occurs, not whether it occurs. “
Note the straw man: “No evolutionary scientists…,” implying that there are no other sort of scientists [i.e.– creation scientists] or that there are no other sort of scientists which may be taken seriously.
Of course no evolutionary scientist doubts whether evolution occured, just as no creation scientist doubts whether creation occurred [we only debate how it occurred: theistic evolution, ex nihilo, et cetera].
Clever dodge, but simply stating that evolution is both fact and theory at the same time doesn’t make it so.
