There is no proof that

They are observed as evolution. Have you ever heard of endogenous retroviruses?
I fail to see how an epigenetic causal agent such as lead disproves evolution. Your argument isn't persuasive at all.
Negative proof. Additionally, epigenetic theory rests on both environmental AND heredity.
It doesn't matter the only difference between it being epigenetic or not is the time at which the force strikes. There is no rule that says
forces can't attack prior.
A mutation, in order to be passed genetically to the next generation no matter its origin, must be present in the sex cells. If something is present
in, say, the liver cells, it's not getting passed on.
Do you understand what I'm saying here?
