It's very clear that there is evolution,
and it's important. Evolution is here, and intelligent design is here, and they're both consistent.
People who want to exclude evolution on the basis of intelligent design, I guess they're saying, "Everything is made at once and then nothing can change." But there's no reason the universe can't allow for changes and plan for them, too. People who are anti-evolution are working very hard for some excuse to be against it. I think that whole argument is a stupid one
Nobel Prize winner Charles Townes on evolution and "intelligent design"
Townes is saying evolution and intelligent design are NOT mutually exclusive. It is stupid to say "evolution" does not exist. It does. We know it does. You really have to put on blinders to say it negate it entirely on every single level.
I didn't look up your other folks but I'd bet money they say similar things. There really aren't any legitimate scientists disputing that evolution happens.
