That's a bit unfair. I'd rather say that hypotheses can be proven to account for more variables than any other, which is our barometer for truth.

Yes, but even then that hypothesis can be displaced by another with superior explanatory power, which means the original was incomplete or flat out wrong, so it's not "proven" in the sense that it is an ultimate explanation.

Well that's exactly my point, as new accounts must then always be compared to the so-called "ultimate account" in order to establish supremacy. The best account is that which explains more than any other. As soon as new accounts arise, it must be discerned whether or not they account for more than the current model.

Why are you assuming animals are naturally evil?

Are you a fool of some sort?

Probably due to the fact that as cavemen who had to club our food to death before we ate it.

Science is never irrefutable because that's literally the entire fucking philosophy behind the scientific method. Evolution is no different. It doesn't matter how much evidence there is in favour of it, there is always the chance that something will be discovered which doesn't fit, and then the theory would no longer be valid. I don't see how I twisted your argument, you just stated something which was wrong. You might see it as pedantry or whatever but the difference is really quite significant.

You fucking mong.
