And humans evolved from apelike ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other, yet to be discovered.

A theory is never a Fact. A theory is a conclusion based on a series of facts. If it were a fact it would never be called a theory.

You all are having a nice pissing match but the absolutes thrown around in here are amazing.
1. Reading comprehension fail.
2. See #1.
3. Is gravity a fact?
