kbmill questioned as follows: "How is evolution "controversial"? How do
you define controversial? To whom is it controversial? It is certainly
not controversial within the scientific community. "

My guess is that you were trying to be a bit sarcastic here. That is hard
to do on this LISTSERV medium, of course.

The "community" here, of course, is not the "scientific community."

The people concerned with it very likely associate the neutral word
"evolution" with the definition "Chemicals to humanity via undirected
accident." As long as Gould, Dawkins and company continue defining it
that way, some counter to their philosophies needs to be said.
