Funnily enough, Darwin followed the scientific process when he went to the Galapagos and attempted to DISPROVE his own theory. What he found there REINFORCED IT. THAT is how science of discovery is done!

Well, since evolution is wrong, and Darwin couldn't disprove it, that proves that he was a bad scientist, which proves that his theory of evolution is wrong. QED.

In college you could have a professor that was terrible and EVERYONE told the dean he was terrible but even then they didn't do anything about it.
