I don't agree with your assertation that evolution is 100% true and essentially unrefutable. If we were to dig up evidence of human bones in precambrian rock, that would be a deathblow to evolution. If we were to discover an actual genetic barrier that the fundies keep alluding to, that would be quite damaging to evolutionary theory.

Essentially what you're saying is that the 'theory' that the sun doesn't revolve around the earth is meaningless because it can't be disproven. How can an 'absolutely true' theory be meaningless?

***I have no clue which side of the coin turned up but I can guarantee you it was either heads or tails.***

What you're making is the argument from ignorance. If a given theory doesn't yet explain a detail, it must be meaningless? Maybe you deserve a stout smack in the mouth. :)
