How to use "Refuted" in context?

In general, when someone denies the existence of something, it is called a refutation. A refutation of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution is an example of a verdict where it is proven wrong. There are many aspects to a refutation, but generally, it involves setting forth evidence that disproves the disputed claim.

It should be noted that not all refutations entail a physical confrontation between the disputants. For example, if you are engaging in a debate, and you know that your opponent holds a certain view, you might try to refute that view by presenting evidence that contradicts it.
