Pretty much everything about evolution, usually including whether evolution has ever occurred, is constantly "contested" (denied) by IDiot-creationists, even though they also contradict themselves by saying or implying that there was hyper-evolution after the alleged flud.
Some aspects of evolutionary processes are "contested" (debated) by scientists who study evolution.
This is absolutely false. You actually KNOW people who postulate that there are no drug resistant bacteria due to mutations?
That, my friend, is evolution.....a change in the gene pool of a population over time.
You seem quite uneducated in the argument thus far.
I didn't say anything about "drug resistant bacteria due to mutations". I said "some aspects of evolutionary processes". The particulars (or aspects) regarding mutations, drift, stasis, punctuated equilibrium, junk DNA, epigenetics, speciation, selection, extinction, adaptation, variation, convergence, recombination, gene flow, etc., etc., etc. are regularly debated ("contested") by scientists. Scientists who agree that evolution occurs don't necessarily agree on the particulars of how it occurs. Sometimes the debates can be quite contentious, such as in the recent debates about the Encode claims. That's not necessarily a bad thing though because such debates ultimately help lead to more research and a better understanding.
