> Evolution is a fact and a theory.

It may well be that Darwin is referred to as 'The theory of evolution by natural selection', but this does not mean that "Evolution is a theory": It means that "evolution by natural selection" is a theory about a mechanism of evolution. Evolution is an observable fact. It may occur by many different means, or all at the same time, such as sexual selection, or by Lamarck's Acquired Characteristics (now deprecated), or by various other means.

> Anyone in disagreement is ignorant and/or a fool.

I disagree with your statement, but it is you that is the "ignorant and/or a fool".
