Your argument is not with me, but with John Casti and his book. Read it.
The presence (or absence) of "equations" is not a necessary factor. I
know Lord Kelvin asserted otherwise. He was wrong.
In the science we share, physics, math is, of course, a necessity. But to
call weather forecsting a science and evolution not a science is, at
best, a faulty definition. To say they have nothing in common is also
faulty. IMHO of course.
