just stating your theory in non-question form with no qualifiers doesn't necessarily indicate certainty
I tend to assume that it does.
Perhaps it depends on what you mean by 'certainty'. I tend towards the opinion that nothing is absolutely certain, or at least nothing that people seriously discuss is absolutely certain, so if we reserved speaking without qualifiers for absolutely certain things then we wouldn't do it at all. I therefore use it for things I believe, things I'm reasonably confident about, things I have a lot of evidence for and no evidence against. If I'm absolutely certain about something, I say so.
