I'm not going to weigh in on the debate on which 'theory" is right or wrong - as right or wrong is simply a far to limiting concept for me. Instead
I'd like to understand, for my own edification, why you feel better knowing it is a "fact?"
It is clear to me by the post that you have thought long and hard about both sides, investigated the theories deeply, and have come to the conclusion
that evolution is fact. The emphatic way in which you present your conclusion means this makes you feel good.
I'd like to know why this conclusion makes you feel good?
Is the idea that you have proven creationism wrong, as the origin of the positive feeling? Often people feel the thrill is related to the wrong thing,
in this case is it simply that one has proven the idiots on the other side wrong and that is the high? Is that one is so deeply troubled by not having
a conclusive theory to get behind that when one is tipped 51-49 in favor of one or the other that the good feelings pour out?
I'm just not clear as to what satisfaction is achieved by aligning with one theory over another and what that satisfaction actually is?
Others may weigh in as well, but why does deciding that one of the two polarities presented is "it" make one feel better?
