The difference is quantum theorists dont pass off their hypotheses as indisputable, righteous fact.

Of course not. However, if we could actually split one of these so-called atoms to confirm such pie in the sky ideas such as atomic theory, that might be different. Oh wait a minute, we actually can. Never mind.

lol, yes.

some theories, like gravity, carry more (excuse the pun) weight than others, and thats the beauty of a self-critical discipline like science.

Oh, it's because it increases their survival chances in their ecological niche? Gee, if only the same could be said for speech. But that's silly. How could speech be an advantage to hunter/gatherer hominids?

Even evolutionists don't. It is disputable. That is akin to being falsifiable. Our current theory of gravity is still not held as indisputable fact.

If the holy rollers started in on quantum theory the way they do on biology, they'd be met with the exact same sort of argument.
