Who was it that said relativity ...

Who was it that said relativity is only a theory and has never been proven ... something like that. It was a famous politician like Ronald Reagan or Dan Quayle.

I am inclined to suspect that the original statement was that evolution is "only a theory" and that it was Ronald Reagan.
