The Syrian army is rapidly closing in on the rebels who are in control of the city, leaving a narrow corridor through which civilians are escaping on foot; Russian and Iranian support are tipping the balance in Assad's favor.01:04 06.02.16 | 1 comments
Lou, thanks for your polite response! However, I didn't really understand what you said. Even so, I agree that the power of an hypothesis, which is scientific and, therefore, potentially falsifiable, does lie in its predictive power. The Theory of Evolution has zero predictive power! For example, it has no power to tell us how evolution occurred in the absence of RNA/DNA because the world is no longer empty of DNA/RNA. Therefore, it cannot tell us how biology evolved in the absence of these self-replicating molecules. Evolutionism does not need predictive power because it is not a scientific theory but an historical one. It predicts backwards, so to speak! It tries to tell us what happened in the past before science and scientists and human beings existed. It does this very badly in my opinion, but my opinion is not based on science since Creationism is no more scientific than Evolutionism.
