'Call to arms' on evolution?

USATODAY.com - 'Call to arms' on evolution This is eerily reminiscent of the Papal Bulls that launched the Crusades - "Take back the Holy Land from the infidels!" - and the Inqusition - "Root out the heretics!" There is no hard evidence for phylum differentiation through natural selection - it's merely assumed. There are seventeen different definitions for speciation, some of them mutually exclusive. The Cambrian Explosion is unexplained. And so on, and so on. A journal editor lost his career for publishing an article on design. Why is it doubleplusungood thoughtcrime to suggest that there is more than one way to interpret the evidence?
