If you categorize contrary opinions as insults, you're going to have a very difficult time here.

The so-called "dispute" of evolution science is a twisting of the reality, first initiated by the "creation science" proponents, then proponents of "intelligent design". But at the code of these people who shout disagreement with evolution science is a basic misunderstanding of the scientific method, and how a science such as biologic evolution emerges and itself evolves. All science, all branches, are constantly bombarded with new information and challenges. This is because new information may or may not alter prior assumptions and conclusions. It hardly means that a science is wrong, it simply means that people are working to refine what is known and discover truths through relentless observation and testing. Creation science and intelligent design proponents observe one of these challenges and instead of taking it for the refinement it is, immediately assume that it changes everything. The science of evolution is not concerned with the cause of the process, only the observed effects of the process, and the hypothesis that can be drawn. Combining observed and tested truths into an accepted science. Now, we certainly could be observing the meddling of an outside influence as species evolve and branch into other species. While the data does not show this is happening, it doesn't show that it is not. However, as we've been discussing, the science of evolution is concerned with what is observed, not speculating on what might be because it is not observed. We'll leave science to the scientists, and theology to the theologians.
