3. The theory of evolution is not scientific

For many centuries, facts were leading in science. However, in some fields of science, facts have become subordinate to fictional theories, which are not based on observed phenomena anymore. As a consequence, those fictional theories can’t be applied to daily life, by which those fields don’t serve society anymore. Financed by society – taxpayers – science is about serving society, by researching the fundamentals of nature, based on facts.

First an example of a field that is based on facts: The field of electromagnetism is scientific, because its manifestations – electricity, magnetism and light – can be generated, and they are applied to daily life. In this way, the field of electromagnetism serves society.

However, none of the claimed phenomena that are exclusive to the theory of evolution – or its derivative theories – can be generated, nor applied 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.

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;
Inflation theory, the assumed inflaton particles aren't observed;
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;
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;
Transition of Kinds theory, none of the assumed transitions of kinds (like: rock minerals → microbes → vegetation → animals → humans) is ever observed.

And the phenomena that are claimed to be observed – like the Higgs boson and gravitational waves – can’t be generated, by which they can’t be applied to daily life.

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. And therefore, the theory of evolution and its derivative theories – including the assumed phenomena – are not scientific. Instead, they are part of a religion:

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