But my complaint is that the evidence usually isn't given, only the interpretation is given and it is given as fact rather than speculation, and to the poor layman it is often ALL that is given.

If layman was given the evidence and the skills and training to understand all of the information required...they wouldn't be a layman.

The majority of people know that when such things are being discussed, they are getting the consensus opinion of the relevant scientists. If they don't want to accept their opinion they are entitled to.
