    Evolution, and only evolution. It is a valid scientific theory. Intelligent design and creationism are not.

    All the scientific theories would be just evolution.

    Yes it is, explain how it isn't. We can't prove that X was the common ancestor of Y and Z through A mutations to X's DNA.

    Thousand.
    I agree that it is not a 100% fact, but you can't ignore natural selection and the scientifically tested evidence for evolution in general.

    Now I don't buy a fish turning into something, something over time and look a dog! But plenty of evidence, backed up by many scientific area's do suggest it is plausible. So much so it is no longer (unlike creation) a hypothesis, but an actual theory.

    Creation is not back up by any hard data. Even you own sites say because it does not seem to be possible, it must be creation. I am sorry but science does not work that way.

    Science is science and faith is faith.

    I'm absolutely fine with creationism and intelligent design being implemented in the education curriculum, but let it be in the social studies/social science areas.

    Yes it is. How is it not? You simply saying it isn't evidence doesn't make it true.
