The simple answer posed in the title of the article is simply, no. There is overwhelming support for evolution through natural selection. The primary confusion about evolution results from its status as a theory. People think that theories cannot be proved and are therefore unimportant. Gravity is a theory, as is continental drift, yet these are accepted as fact when they have as much or less support than evolution. Two ideas are the basis for all the controversy surrounding the theory of evolution, the questions of what happened and how. Basically, the theory states that small differences or mutations that occur in offspring result in different chances of survival and reproduction. Those whose differences are detrimental to their survival, for instance a black moth in a forest of white trees, would be more likely to be naturally eliminated from passing on their genetic material by predators. Over time, the process of natural selection results in a new species with the qualities that allowed their ancestors to survive. The current issue between religion and evolution is the result of misunderstandings of Darwin's theory. Humans did not descend from monkeys. If we did, then there would not be any monkeys around today. Evolution does not even eliminate the possibility of a higher authority. Darwin, himself, was an agnostic, believing in a greater power but not giving it an identity. Many who wish to reconcile science and religion say that God set the world in motion and used evolution to keep it going. Studies of domestic animals that were raised for certain traits have the most conclusive evidence of the proof of Darwin's theory and the implications it may have had on the past and the future of our world.
