Sounds good, Jerica.
Is Evolution a fact or just a theory?
Both. Biological evolution is an observed fact. The theory of Natural Selection (as opposed to Lamarck's (falsified) hypothesis of Acquired Characteristics) explains how biological evolution happens. Punctuated Equilibrium is a reformulation of the previous gradualistic model of Natural Selection. It's still Natural Selection, just a slightly different model.
Also, you should really lose the JUST a theory phrasing. That's the sort of thing that creationists say.
A theory is more powerful than a mere fact. Theories explain facts. Theories are supported by many facts. A theory is pretty much the ultimate aspiration for an idea, in science.
Oh, and welcome, neighbor. I've been to King a few times. We had a few work-from-home employees in King, when I was a field technician for Blue Cross Blue Shield.
