We’ve heard over and over again from the Darwinist side of this debate that ID offers no novel predictions. Intelligent design actually offers many intriguing and novel predictions (you can head over to ResearchID.org to see some of them), but what about Darwinism?
I would love it if some of our commentators or readers would offer what they think are predictions of Darwinism. The definiton of Darwinism that we’ll use is the following proposition:
"The origin and diversity of life has occured solely by undirected processes such as natural selection."
For a prediction to count, of course it will have to be one that only Darwinism makes.
Update: There seems to be some confusion about what kind of predictions count. No predictions count that could be made from a more modest postulate. ID has no bones about common descent, so any predictions from common descent don’t count.
The one sentence hypothesis above could of course be written as two:
1. "The origin of life has occured solely by undirected processes such as natural selection."
2. "The diversity of life has occured solely by undirected processes such as natural selection."
It’s fine to just give a prediction from just one of those hypothesis.
