- Fossils of more complex organisms would occur only in younger rock strata. (confirmed)
- There must be some internal mechanism that creates variability so that change over time can occur. (confirmed through DNA)
- Fossils of similar organisms will be found in certain locations on earth, in isolation from other non-similar organisms. (confirmed)
- DNA similarity should be predictive of how closely related two organisms are to each other. (confirmed) This corroborates the fossil record, too.
In science, a "prediction" does not necessarily mean describing a future event. It is simply the logical result you would expect from the data you have.
