It's more so a fact because we know more about the mechanics behind Evolution than we do for Gravity (which is also accompanied by a Theory if you decided to skip some prior posts).
So, a Hypothesis is certainly not what we are dealing with when it comes to Evolution, but nice try. If you are going to use Scientific Terms, lets use them according to what the Scientists dictate, shall we?
Oh wait a minute. I need an Emoticon to be taken seriously.
There we go!

Weird how you proved me wrong on the verses thing. I mean, before Germ Theory and modern medicine, it was commonly accepted that Demons caused Illnesses... how on Earth could I and the Church leaders of the past get it SO wrong? Dang it.That was Catholic dogma not scripture so if you are going to use biblical terms then you must do so as the bible dictates
Look. I didn't write your Bible. And in fact, there have been more recent Translations because the Kings James Version wasn't exactly spot on. So what if something crept into it that shouldn't have been there? Like the verses about Unicorns and Cockatrices? In the New Standard Revised Edition, maybe it takes care of the whole Demons causing illness thing like when it got rid of faulty translations involving those mythical creatures.
Now please, can I "run" away into a personal message with you? I don't want to become guilty of the very thing I just assured TexasRN I wasn't going to do... even though I'm not bashing the Religion, just making note of a verse.I can care what the English translations say I can read the Greek manuscripts. You cannot make a doctrine based on the English version and the point is you said the bible claimed illness was caused by demons. That is not true. Illness was caused by sin entering into the world and from that point on mankind began to die in the flesh. You posted scripture and were refuted soundly and no you make excuses. Just admit you are wrong and have no clue because your faith is in the scientific method and not the creator.
If thats not your interpretation of those verses, thats fine, but thats why we have so many sects of Christianity, because no one can seem to agree on a lot of it.It is not my interpretation it is called rules of grammar. Spend so more time in English class and less in science class. The rules are same in English as well.

Last but not least, Ardipithicus is fully intact. Why don't you do a more recent check than 8 years ago? You know what else happened recently? They discovered thanks to sequencing Mitochondrial DNA that Neanderthals have not contributed to the Gene pool of the modern Human population. Can you guess what that means?! It's a whole other "Human" race complete with it's own awesome features, like increased bone density, more muscle mass, and larger brains that modern Humans have! What do you know?! Evolution caused two "Human" types of Species to Evolve somewhat separately... but our Ancestors the Cro-Magnons outcompeted the Neanderthals for Territory and food because they were more social and better adapted to the warming climate.My gosh how much propaganda kool aid do you drink everyday. Also adaption is not what were are talking about, stop trying to skirt the issue

Oh, and uh... I provided the websites, now you go research. Try it for once. It's pretty fun.
You provided general websites but not direct quotes also they need to be from peer reviewed publication and not a random website or a popular magazine because those have low to no standards of integrity.. So until you can do that you are full of it. My other responses are in red above.
