Awesome No J.!!!! never did that one.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

When Christians pull out the old "evolution is just a theory" line the response I use is that yes it is, except evolution has 150 years of continual, daily accumulated scientific evidence supporting it, a volume of proof so vast, one person could not review it all in a dozen lifetimes. It would be ridiculous to ask for more "proof" of evolution than we already have; one might as well ask for more proof that the sun provides us with heat and light.

Good response to the theory BS. Mike.

When I find myself in times of trouble, Richard Dawkins comes to me, speaking words of reason, now I see, now I see.

Fortunately in my country pretty much everyone knows evolution is true (even though most believe that everything about it, including natural selection, was manipulated by a god) but if I had to face someone who didn't believe in evolution and used the "evolution is just a theory" line I'd use the same answer as this guy:

skip to 1:23 for the relevant stuff, although the whole video is great to watch

Whenever I'm asked "What if you're wrong?", I always show the asker this video: http://youtu.be/iClejS8vWjo Screw Pascal's wager.
