Claim CA220:

Science requires experiments that can be replicated. Evolution can not be replicated, so it is not science.


Morris, Henry M. 1985. Scientific Creationism. Green Forest, AR: Master Books, p. 4.


  1. Science requires that observations can be replicated. The observations on which evolution is based, including comparative anatomy, genetics, and fossils, are replicable. In many cases, you can repeat the observations yourself.

  2. Repeatable experiments, including experiments about mutations and natural selection in the laboratory and in the field, also support evolution.
