Many of these questions are rephrased objections to evolution that users have argued should be included in the text of Evolution. The reason for their exclusion is discussed below.
The main points of this FAQ can be summarized as:
- The process and theory of evolution are both uncontroversial among biologists.
- Wikipedia:Neutral point of view requires that minority views not be given undue emphasis.
- Therefore it is against Wikipedia policy for views without scientific support, such as all known objections to evolution, to be interjected into a science article like Evolution.
