Of course evolution is a theory. I refer you to post 17, an excellent side-by-side comparison of evolution (science) and creation (faith). Both coexist beautifully. To blindly diminish science in the name of faith exposes a terribly weak faith. The majority of Christians (myself included) suffer from no such weakness.

"Of course evolution is a theory."

Of course you miss the point that a 'theory' supported by logical fallacies is, in fact, faith.

"I refer you to post 17, an excellent side-by-side comparison of evolution (science) and creation (faith). Both coexist beautifully."

I refer you again to the fact that any theory supported by fallacy is not science, but faith. Opposing faiths do not 'coexist beautifully' except in the thoughts of the double-minded.

"To blindly diminish science in the name of faith exposes a terribly weak faith."

To blindly refuse to recognize that the fallacy of affirming the consequent and the fallacy of false cause (non sequitur) are the foundation of your appeal to 'science' after the point was made directly to you is astounding. It appears to result from a near absence of critical-thinking ability.

"The majority of Christians (myself included) suffer from no such weakness."

Adding the fallacy of appeal to popularity to the previously identified fallacies does not strengthen your position.
