Hang on here; as far as I am concerned evolution IS a theory. It has been thoroughly verified and not disproved, but that does not constitute proof of validity in a proper scientific sense.
However consider this. Both evolution and the existence of strings are called theories. Yet the evidence for the former is substantial while the evidence for the latter is practically zero. There should be a better word for a process we believe to be factually verified enough that we are confident of its truth.
