Evolution, a Pseudoscience

That's right, you heard it! Evolution is a pseudoscience.

"How can you say that, Cowboy Bob?"

Take a look-see: "Science refers to a system of acquiring knowledge. This system uses observation and experimentation to describe and explain natural phenomena. The term science also refers to the organized body of knowledge people have gained using that system. Less formally, the word science often describes any systematic field of study or the knowledge gained from it."[1]

Another definition says, "Science is a way of understanding the world, not a mountain of facts. Before anyone can truly understand scientific information, they must know how science works. Science does not prove anything absolutely — all scientific ideas are open to revision in the light of new evidence. The process of science, therefore, involves making educated guesses (hypotheses) that are then rigorously and repeatedly tested."[2] Nice escape hatch to say that "science does not prove anything absolutely", huh? That can be brought into play when discussing flaws in evolution and when someone insists that evolution is a "fact"!

Evolution does not fit the real definitions of science. It cannot be tested, repeated, observed, measured or falsified. It is a belief system about the past, attempting to use science to support conclusions. Surprisingly to some Christians, creation science is the same in that regard, but with better science. Fundamentalist evolutionists sure do have a great deal of faith.
The Skeptic’s Dictionary contains an entry on ‘pseudoscience’ that includes ten characteristic fallacies of pseudoscientific theories. The list’s compiler clearly did not have evolution in mind, as the very first group the article identifies as pseudoscientific is ‘creationists’. Ironically, evolution has almost every characteristic on this list. Let’s look at how evolution exhibits the fallacies listed by these self-proclaimed skeptics, with just one example of each.
