On Facts and Theories

Yaknow what’s weird to me? I think most people, without thinking deeply about it, assume that science is factual, while theology is theoretical. The actuality is that scientific theories, no matter how thoroughly tested and proofed, are always considered theoretical by scientific practitioners while theology demands that its practitioners accept a number of theories as fact with no testing or proofing. I am not commenting on the veracity of any of it, just that it seems strange.
