Pretty amazing discovery: a meteorite found in Australia had two base biological compounds not found in their particular forms on Earth, meaning they came from space. Holy crap, Batman, we're all aliens!

Floridians & journos still ignorant over scientific terms & concepts

Florida's government's ruling that evolution is a scientific theory, as part of a broad-spectrum updating of the state's educational standards, highlights just how ignorant the populace as a whole is of scientific terms and concepts. As mentioned before, a scientific theory is different to what most people think as a "theory", and as such evolution fits the term "scientific theory perfectly - remember that there are gaps in the theory which is why it hasn't become a scientific law yet, unlike the law of gravity or the laws of thermodynamics. So, proponents of evolution who complain that evolution is a "fact" need to re-read their science 101 text books, and the people who believe evolution is incorrect need to a) get their heads out of their posteriors and b) accept that just because they can't understand it or it wasn't in a 2000 year old story anthology doesn't mean it isn't true.
