Re: Just a thought ...
However, we can make predictions about the kind of fossils that might be found in a specific area. The Tiktaalik (or a fish/amphibian missing link) was being looked for in the area where they found it because the rocks were the right age, and of the right environment. It was predicted something like that would be found, and they found it.
That's a prediction.
