    What is so convincing about evolution?

    Why should we believe this" theory"?

    Because evolution is not only a "theory" it is scientific fact!
    There are parts of evolution that are considered to be theories but in principal evolution is a scientific fact.

    your question shows your bias, so you probably won't appreciate the answer - evolution is simply the foundation of modern biology and medical & biotech applications that spring from it.   it's not a question of belief - that's for religion and other superstitions. evolution is scientific fact, logical and rationally supported by reproducible evidence.

    it's only a theory in the way gravity is a theory.

    it's all around us. species are evolving all the time , changing as weather changes. we humans have become taller then we were even 150 years ago. the whole of evolution is a partial theory but as christoss1959 said evolution is a scientific fact.

    It is a scientific fact. The evidence is overwhelming. There are bones dating millions of years ago which suggest evolution is ongoing in humans and other animals.

    However, some but not all Christian have a bias towards their religious institutions. They are told to call evolution a "theory".

    You are not supposed to believe it - you are supposed to understand it.  Only the religious confuse "belief" with "understanding".

    because of the thousands of facts around the world. problem is theory┬┤s meaning, in science theory means a comprehensive explanation of an important feature of nature supported by facts gathered over time.

    Every organism that once lived does not necessarily become a fossil - most did not.  To become a fossil an organism requires highly specific conditions (e.g. being covered by mud before the organism is destroyed by other elements). 

    It is absurd to expect a perfect chain in the fossil record - every organism would have to be preserved and then found and documented. 

    The fact that there are gaps in the fossil record proves nothing.
