Deducing theories from evidence is science. You obviously don't know what "untestable" means in relation to evolution.

Name a dozen untestable evolutionary explanations.

In the philosophy of science, all deductions are tentative. There are many that are so solidly established that we might as well cal them facts.

All those can be and have been tested by observing the traces they have left behind. Especially common descent (including the ancestry of humans) , tested both by fossil progression and, independently, genetics.

Bet you are one of those who thinks that observing a past event requires recreating it, amirite?
