Predictions January 6, 2008Posted by John A. Davison in general.
I thought it might be fun to have a thread where I and others can make predictions. After all, isn’t that what scientists often do? They examine the data, produce an hypothesis and as part of the verification procedure they make predictions. If the predictions prove to be accurate, the hypothesis receives support, and with enough support it will be elevated to the status of a true theory. That is precisely how all scientific hypotheses are verified. Actually I feel the Prescribed Evolutionary Hypothesis has already reached the status of theory, but that is just me!
I hope that others will offer their predictions and I do not mean to limit our predictions to only evolutionary matters. One can make predictions on any subject one chooses.
Let me start the ball rolling with a couple of my own.
1. Before the end of this decade those who deny an anthropogenic global warming will be scarce as hen’s teeth.
2. Al Gore will be the Democratic nominee for the 2008 election and he will probably win! Now I am really out on a limb with this one but I am trying to evoke a little more interest in this blog!
Now let’s hear from others what their predictions are. You don’t even have to use your right names but it would be nice if you did. How else can you be rewarded for being right?
“A past evolution is undeniable, a present evolution undemonstrable.”
