I think Shapiro and Koonin assert that most "hard" evolution takes place in microbes. Things like invention of protein domains and new genes.

They also seem enamored of horizontal gene transfer.

And claim that most metazoan evolution is modification of regulatory networks rather than invention of new genes.

I believe both apply "Lamark" to some adaptations in microbes, but not to evolution in general. I wish I knew enough to be more specific.

Any version of ID consistent with all the evidence is indistinguishable from evolution.
