The trouble with many evolutionary "explanations" is that they are untestable hypotheses relating to events that cannot be verified as factual - so in effect, they are stories within stories. Story-telling isn't science.

Actually you seem confused. It is religious belief that is story-telling and untestable, and relating to events that cannot be verified as factual.
