Stop right there. Darwin himself - while not using that term - predicted it.<quoted text>
Don't Duh me lovey. You have a long way to go before you can make any sense of what TOE has to guess at with the latest flavour of the month. You are only confusing yourself.
Tiktaalik has been knocked off its pedastal with a variety of tetrapod footprints being found dated to 400mya, on the heels of the Devonian.
I did not say TOE makes no predictions. I said a crystal ball also gets it right sometimes.eg the huge difference in the human/chimp Y chromosome was not predicted, punctuated equilibrium was not predicted...
"The periods during which species have undergone modification, though long as measured in years, have probably been short in comparison with the periods during which they retain the same form." Charles Darwin, Origin of Species , 4th edition (1866)
