It sounds like Warren Lamboy is saying that any phenomenon that occurs
uniquely and didn't have witness cannot be studied scientifically, or at
least not with statistics.  But some folks calling themselves scientists
spend a lot of time working on cosmology and evaluating evidence for and
against various theories of the universe's origin.  I think they even use
statistics to evaluate their data and reconstruct history.  How is
phylogeny unrecoverable but other historical phenomena are?
