The theory is, the fact isn't.
Ami: The ability of things to evolve naturally, step by step, from simple to complex
is a prediction of evolution.
I disagree, there is no prediction or necessity in evolution to increase complexity.
Ami: Therefore, to invoke the predictions of the theory itself to prove the theory is a bit circular, isn't it?
Likely but that is not the case here.
