Religious groups that oppose Darwin’s evolution, seem to think that because scientists debate the components of the theory, that it must not be correct. What they don’t realize is that scientists ALWAYS debate, test, and question the nature world. That is the basis of the scientific method. The base argument of evolution is very sound, and can be re-created over and over again in the lab. Some of the finer points are still being fleshed out, and change over time. Here is a nice article over on Wired about evolution in the microbial world. Here is a snippet of the story.
Microbes make up much of Earth’s biomass, and they also cast into relief the shortcomings of neo-Darwinian evolution. A bucket of seawater can contain 60,000 bacterial species, and to Woese, these must be seen as a collective rather than as disparate units.
