|"However, again, evolution is not contested by anyone I am familiar with on either side."|
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.
Yes, people who claim there is no evolution, even in drug resistance, are easy to find. Your google-fu is weak.

What, I'm supposed to go read long papers in order to support some point you are trying to make that I'm not even sure what is?
Please bring your discussion in your own words and use PDFs for referrences if you feel they are needed. I will be happy to address your posts in that format.
Well hell son, I'd hate to make this hard for you. Tell you what, how about you learn this the same way I did?
Which, BTW, was reading a shitload of long papers. Examining them. Looking for flaws. Comparing results with other papers. Reading a lot of books. Comparing them (and BTW: the pro-ID books suck; bad writing, no science, poor arguments, impossible conclusions, etc). Generating my own conclusions instead of those handed to me by professors.
And you know what? I don't even have a graduate degree. I do this FOR FUN and because it's necessary to understand the science and the way the world works.
Ignored by those who can't provide evidence for their claims.
