Theory or Law : Semantics??



Odd question to ask the List.
 
Do you believe that the Theory of Evolution should 
just be regarded as a well established Theory?? Or 
do you think we should start calling it a Law?? How
comfortable are we on this??
 
Again. Not a frivoulous question. It could carry  
somewhat of an impact over to Joe and Jane Public.
If they hear it referred to as Law (as in Gravity),
it may send the signal that those who disagree are
completely out-of-touch with 21st C reality. When 
the public hears "theory" they automatically assume
"hypothesis" ...... "speculation" ...... "best guess".
 
Could semantics be part of our problem out there??
