4. The theory of evolution is not scientific

Most of the claimed phenomena of the theory of evolution – and its derivative theories – are not observed. Examples:
String theory, the assumed strings aren't observed;
Dark energy theory, the assumed dark energy isn't observed;
Dark matter theory, the assumed dark matter isn't observed;
Multiverse theory, the assumed “other universes” aren't observed;
Black hole theory, the assumed black holes themselves can't be observed by definition. The origin of the observed phenomena – surrounding the assumed location of black holes – can only be assumed;
Oort cloud theory, the assumed Oort cloud isn't located, and therefore isn’t observed;
Extraterrestrial life theory, the assumed extraterrestrial life isn't located, and therefore isn’t observed;
Inflation theory, the assumed inflaton particles aren't observed;
Transition of Kinds theory, none of the assumed transitions of kinds (like: rock minerals → microbes → vegetation → animals → humans) is ever observed.

As a consequence of not being observed, these claimed phenomena are not applicable to daily life. Also the phenomena that are claimed to be observed – like the Higgs boson and gravitational waves – are not applicable to daily life.

Conclusion: None of the claimed phenomena of the theory of evolution – and its derivative theories – is applicable to daily life.

Or the other way around: None of the applications to daily life is exclusive to the theory of evolution or its derivative theories.

Not being observable, nor testable, nor repeatable, nor falsifiable, nor applicable to daily life, the theory of evolution and its derivative theories are not scientific. They are part of a religion.

Science is about observed phenomena, while religion is about unobserved phenomena.

As long as we – humans – are unable to create life from dead material, the origin of life can only be believed. And as long as we – humans – are unable to create another universe from scratch, the origin of the universe can only be believed. Science is not based on beliefs. Therefore, the origin of life and the universe themselves are not part of science.
