The Scientific Method. The evolutionary theory is a ‘model’.

 

#9 Evolution is not empirical science, the practice of testing the physical world. Some science is done by way of hands-on testing — that’s what “empirical” means. But it is also done by building a “model” to explain events. A “model” is a way of framing information so that it makes sense. The “evolutionary model” is an historical model. Other models include predictive models like weather forecasts, emulation, and a couple other types. Evolution was not built according to the rules of the hands-on tests that we did in high school. At the same time, neither are questions about God subject to that same old rule.
