The article says nothing of the sort. It's saying that the general/macro theory of evolution is unobservable and unrepeatable, and therefore does not fall under the definition of empirical science. As such, the macro theory of evolution is story telling based on historical inferences that are based on materialistic ASSUMPTIONS.

"is unobservable and unrepeatable"

When we start hearing rumors of Navy Seals being re-engineered to have gills and Army Rangers re-engineered to have binocular vision you will think otherwise.

Yawn... much of physics is "non repeatable"(e.g., humans have never gone at the speed of light) however much of this "non repeatable" stuff is readable observable in other phenomena. Just as "macro" evolution is observable in fossils and DNA patterns.

This particular crevo lie has been refuted many times. Then again you don't even understand your own talking points, how can you be expected to understand their rebuttals?

It is not an article. It is an opinion piece.
