Through the process of descent with modification, the common ancestor of life on Earthgave rise to the fantastic diversity that we see documented in the fossil record andaround us today. Evolution means that we're all distant cousins: humans and oak trees,hummingbirds and whales.
Certain recent evidence indicates just the opposite of what our common sense tells us. It appears that evolution actually occurs much faster than we would expect from natural selection through random mutation alone. Punctuated Equilibrium takes advantage of this difference by proposing that local changes occur rapidly in a small population under survival pressure.
Gould has been to the USA, its finest teacher of evolution.
In addition to careers in Ornithology, Taxonomy and Systematics, he was a Professor of Zoology and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard and director of its Museum of Comparative Zoology.

So let's look at what we give up in the alleged "compromise" of theistic evolution.
