    1. Some antievolution authors have published papers in serious journals. Those papers, however, rarely attack evolution directly or advance creationist arguments; at best, they identify certain evolutionary problems as unsolved and difficult (which no one disputes)

      What holes are these, that remain to be filled? What coverage is required in order for a hypothesis to graduate into a "theory"? 50%? More? Less?

    2. the idea of falsifiability as the defining characteristic of science originated with philosopher Karl Popper

      Science is true until "proven" false?

    3. The absence of direct observation does not make physicists' conclusions less certain.

      Shouldn't it, though? What's to say there isn't an alternative explanation that fits the same pseudo-observations better.

    1. Newton had a great time for a long time with his description [of gravity], and then at some point it was clear that that description was fraying at the edges, and then Einstein offered a more complete version

      Newton's laws succumbed to fault. Perhaps Einstein's would too? There's nothing wrong with taking a scientific approach to life when you're eternal; you can take your time finding the truth. Seeing as we're not, you cannot be certain that you aren't stuck in some local maxima, only to have your belief supplanted centuries later.
