Well, there is the matter of extensive fossil evidence. While critics do
seize on gaps in the fossil record to indict evolutionary theory, there is
all the same a large amount of consistent, chrononologically arranged data
to show bifurcation, adaptation, and extinction ... that is, natural
selection as exposed to exotic species introduction. Insistence on some
outside agent is dependent on some separate aesthetic, and most scientists
would reject it using "Ocham's razor."
