      ... in mathematics and logic.

      Kate said: Things like gravity and thermodynamics and Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion are observed proven and therefore are scientific laws.

      Actually, biological evolution has been observed, and it's been proven in the laboratory and in the wild. While the mechanisms that drive it are still being studied, there is no debate in the scientific community that species evolve from earlier species.

      If evolution wasn't true, viruses wouldn't be able to become resistant to medicine, and nothing in genetics would make sense.

      Kate said: I think that it's Newton's Law of Gravitation, not Newton's Theory of Gravitation. According to Wiki, "This is a general physical law derived from empirical observations by what Newton called induction."

      You are forgetting Einstein's theories on gravitation. In some cases, they contradict Newton's observations, especially in regards to quantum mechanics.
