No amount of evidence can prove anything.

Counterexamples can disprove things.

Only maths do proofs.

That said, the evidence supporting the theory of evolution is immense and is a no danger of being disproven.

This.

Science does not set out to prove anything.

It sets out to disprove things, or to fail to disprove them.

The Darwinian Synthesis (that is, Darwin adjusted for what we now know that he did not) is still our best framework for understanding life on this planet: it's withstood a ton of assaults, and is the best way we can account for the evidence.

Not much one for biology, huh?

It's the closest to proven anything will ever get, homie.

I have faith that ST. Darwin's " good feeling about evolution " is right
