Maybe we should just stop using the word "Theory." This is a lost battle. Everyone uses it incorrectly. Even those of us who know what a "theory" is, as opposed to an "hypothesis" or even an "idea," will go back to saying "theory" occasionally. This is a lost battle in an important war! Meanwhile we have two words for the top step: "law" and "principle." We should be using "principle" where we mean "theory." C'mon, admit it, it sounds right. "The Principle of Evolution, It's not just a theory anymore!"
