I think that any rational, reasonable individual when presented with the weight of our current knowledge and understanding regards the process of evolution would reasonably have to conclude that evolution is indeed at work on global biology. However, evolution is not just restricted to biological systems. Consider our collective sense of humour. Things which were considered hilarious in the very early part of the 20th century (silent movies) some of that humour is now so old to have lost any humourous content. Why is that? Because we've moved on and our tastes have evolved to more complex and alternative themes based on our modern life etc. Consider financial systems. They too are evolving. Capitalism is another test bed for the survival of the fitest. There are winners and losers just as there are in biology. There are many more examples.The reduction of the variety and extinction of languages etc. The validity of Darwinianism is only questioned (or rather refuted) by those of a religious nature who have been indoctrinated against the idea and are determined to continue to deny its validity irrespective of the weight of evidence presented for it. Logic does not play a part in their argument. Faith and belief without understanding is all that is required. . In my opinion people who carry on about their lives in this bubble of ignorance are neither rational nor reasonable individuals. They are brainwashed into submission and ignorance. And sadly they have a tendency to fight long and hard to stay that way. Most although not all are beyond help. One final example of evolution in action: It has been predicted that science will have eradicated religion within a couple centuries, as increases in the availability of education and the spread of democracy continue. Given the negative impact that such religious stigmatisation and dogma is currently having on main stream scientific advancement, as far as I'm concerned, societal evolution resulting in the demise religion can't happen soon enough.
