Just because it isn't testable, doesn't mean it isn't there.
Also, you are leaving out of this "debate" a very large majority of the world's population with that statement.

That's because in the creation theory, the origin of species and the origin of the universe usually go hand-in-hand.

To me, this thread doesn't seem like a debate. It seems more like an excuse to tell each other how great the evolution theory is. Because you said that you disregarded creation because it can't be tested. And you have already stated that evolution is the only theory that is a demonstrable mechanism to explain our existence. Therefore you will disregard anyone who believes anything other than evolution. Therefore this thread is pointless.
