You’ve probably heard the claim that doubting evolution is just like doubting gravity. What’s wrong with this argument?
Well, try this experiment. Grab a pencil … hold it in the air … and let it go. What happened? Well, it fell to the ground, of course. Now, go observe an amoeba turn into a man. Well, you can’t!
Gravity is testable. We can test, observe, and repeat our experiments. But evolution is an interpretation of the past. It isn’t directly testable, observable, or repeatable. You can’t test it in the present like you can gravity.
Evolution is historical science, gravity is observational science—and there’s a big difference!
