It should have:
1) testable hypotheses
2) confirming evidence
3) potential falsifications
I would be interested in exploring the potential falsifications part of this trio. Since I can honestly disavow having previously posted same trio, I leave it to one of the others of the evolution side, to supply some potential falsifications.

Being unable to derive any phylogenies from genetic data, that don't, by & large, fit the anatomy/morphological phylogenies that pre-existed genetic analysis.

I've been thinking about the human fossil in the preCambrian senario.
If such a thing were found, would it falsify the TOE in it's entirety? Or would it stand to the side as an unexplained annomaly?
Would it mearly put a really big dent in the TOE?
After all, there still would be a massive amount of valid scientific support for the TOE.

One thing's for sure, even if it was proven that the human fossil was NOT pre cambrian in origin, it would STILL be in Answers In Genesis as a falsification.
