A lot of problems come from the general public misunderstanding what
scientists mean by "a theory." It does not mean a guess, or a conjecture, or
one possible explanation among many. It means the best possible explanation
based on all the available evidence. Therefore we have the "theory of
evolution" as well as the "theory of gravity."
