Hyping the evidence for “evolution”

Article reads:  He summarizes, “the adaptive landscape is rugged, with lots of peaks and valleys. … We saw … that complex adaptations can evolve via a series of small, individually advantageous changes. No valley need be involved. … On the other hand, we need not appeal to miracles even if evolution does cross valleys. … In small populations, gene frequences are buffeted by a variety of random forces, and these can push populations across valleys. We understand the mechanisms involved, and we have seen them operate in the laboratory. Evolutionists may argue about how often they happen in nature, but one thing is clear: there is no plausible basis for the argument that adaptive evolution requires miracles.”

On the other hand, we may argue that natural selection leaves evolution unexplained: http://vixra.org/abs/1011.0064
