Re: Another nail in the coffin?

It would be wrong to state Evolution as a fact, but as a theory, it certainly has a decent amount of experimental data going for it. At this stage, changes to the theory are likely to be in the form of adjustments, solutions to edge cases, and other what might be best termed as "fine-tuning".

Epigenetics has interesting data going for it as well, some of the most interesting coming from studies of monozygotic twins that should have identical DNA yet have different fingerprints and plenty of times show signs (even when raised together in the same household) of divergent behavior: including but not limited to differing sexual orientations. It's a pretty fair sign that DNA can't speak for everything.
