"...the rigor of evolution..." Pfffft!

Actually, evolution is quite rigorously proven.

However, by definition it does not begin until there is life. It is not an explanation for the origin of life. (The problem with origin-of-life theories is that there are far too many of them that are extremely plausible and can't currently be eliminated, each of which would have had millions if not billions of plausible "attempts" per day in the period in which life began, and no way to ever prove which actually happened.)

And it does not in any way exclude the possibility of outside interference.
