Well I just read Coyne's book "Why Evolution is True". In chapter 5,
section "Can Selection Build Complexity", he refers to evolution of
complex (biological) features and says that the exact steps which
occurred are unknown. He also asks the question "How do we know there
has been enough time?" and his answer leaves a lot to be desired. He
says that we don't know of any other mechanism to produce life as we see
it so evolution must be true. It seems to me that he would totally
ignore the subject if it were really unimportant and made no difference
and that he is referring to macro evolution.

Just to be clear I am not saying evolution of complex biological
features is impossible, just not proven yet.
