not inductive, but deductive

Are you going to dispute deductive reasoning? The theory of evolution is based on deductive reasoning, which is more powerful than inductive reasoning. A logical proof is more powerful than an experiment. The theory of evolution is based on logical conclusions derived from observed facts. So your argument is rather pointless. Taking an example from human action, it's akin to me stating that values are ordinal, and you replying that there have been no experiments performed to prove that values are ordinal.
