<i>Evolution as a principle is not disputed in the scientific mainstream, where the term “theory” does not mean a hunch, but an explanation backed by abundant observation, and where gaps in knowledge are not seen as grounds for doubt but points for future understanding.</i>
Every every every article about evolution should contain that sentence.  Hooray for the NYTimes for putting it in there.  The phrase “just a <i>theory</i>” makes me want to throw people out the window.
