“Evolutionary Prediction” Is An Oxymoron

In a previous post one commenter exclaimed: “…it is perfectly reasonable to say that, since no evolutionary prediction has ever been contradicted by data, that it reasonably wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be any time soon.”
Darwinian theory predicts everything, but only after the fact. It predicts that people will be selfish, and that they will be selfless. Predictions must precede what they predict. Predictions that predict everything predict nothing.
This is yet another example of after-the-fact, just-so storytelling, in the grand tradition of Darwinian logic and reasoning.
