Into the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, as Darwinism went to school, disagreement repeatedly has landed parties in court.
Consider the best known example of the issue.

In the United States Supreme Court ruled that banning the teaching of evolution was an unconstitutional imposition of religion on public education. Arkansas Board of Education U. District Court and Edwards v. Aguillard U. Supreme Court made teaching creation science unconstitutional as well. In effect, they invited school boards and citizens to continue to parry over the teaching of evolution using arguments similar to St.
Mivart focused on the structure of the eye. How could an organ so exquisitely fashioned in every detail, he reasoned, spring into being piecemeal? His book provided Darwin doubters with a persuasive refutation of natural selection. Intermediate forms, unfinished structures, he argued were mal-adaptive.
Transitions must fail.

Poor eyesight, in the struggle for existence, would necessarily be a liability. Only independently created, fully operational creations made sense to Mivart, who ironically accepted the reality of natural selection. In his universe, however, natural selection brought evolution to a halt.
The origin of species required creation, and creation, a Creator. Modern opponents of descent with modification repeatedly marshal the argument of design or Mivart objection down to the molecular level of structure, not just in terms of gross anatomy limbs, eyes, wings. Complicated biomolecules in complex orchestration prove to them the independence of origins by means of design. Intricate, masterful design, not helter-skelter tinkering, governs the molecules of life and the structures of cellular scale. Descent with modification is impossible; the designs function only when all the components are present and working in concert.
Simplified and intermediate contraptions en route to a complex construction necessarily fail, favored analogy being a mousetrap.

Either there exists a fully functioning mousetrap or not. No mousetrap device, composed of trigger, spring, bait, catch, platform etc. Remove just one part to create an intermediate mousetrap and there is no functional mousetrap at all. Such contraptions never entered the marketplace. By analogy, only complex, fully formed eyes, with all the necessary parts, can function successfully. Intermediates are presumably dysfunctional. Gaps offer evidence. They record the absence of intermediate forms. Novelty happens, but only in finished form, according to design. Novel creations do not build piecemeal upon small changes.
An intense focus on things deemed not to exist becomes evidence of supernatural agency, making descent with modification contrary to Nature. Remember that dissenting opinion in Edwards v. Aguillard has invited champions of creation science to seek evidence that scientists in fact do creation science.
Authors of intelligent design theory supposedly had exorcised the creator from creation science and had placed empirical phenomena gaps and irreducible complexity under scientific scrutiny. These two accomplishments appear to have given seekers of balanced treatment for non-Darwinian biology the inroad into public education sought ever since the Scopes monkey trial. As a result, fellow citizens of Dover, Pennsylvania, found themselves in court as both plaintiffs and defendants in the case of Kitzmiller et al.
Dover Area School District. Ultimately, Judge John E. Jones ruled against the school board and in favor of a group of citizens led by Tammy Kitzmiller. Flagellistic reasoning dominated the proceedings. Few places in America are as familiar with flagella as the citizens of Dover. The flagellum is a whip-like organelle attached to a cell and the means of locomotion among certain microorganisms, as well as a structure found lining the skin and internal membranes of some macro-organisms.
Movement of the flagellum requires an organized cascade of biomolecular activity sometimes described as analogous to a rotary motor. A cell with a single flagellum swims; a skin composed of flagellated cells moves current over its surface.

The flagellum is a virtual organic micro-robot, a busy contraption amenable to many uses, provided all its parts are in working order. During the trial of Kitzmiller v. Dover to the chagrin of the intelligent design cadre, biologist Kenneth R. Miller summarized research refuting reasoning modeled on the Mivart objection. His testimony confirmed the functional utility of intermediate forms of flagellum structures—the simpler precursors to a more complex flagellum. He described the existence and utility at biomolecular scale of each stage of gradation from protein to organelle.
His argument paralleled the Darwinian response to the supposed problem of the transitional eye—a well-documented and widely accepted account of functional eyes at every level of complexity from pigmented cell to lens-focused organ. Tammy Kitzmiller, a local parent, objected.
Her daughter had voiced a sincere interest in evolution. The Mivart strategy finds fault in evolutionary thought by arguing that the transitions are impossible; only finished, complete form—endpoints—function adaptively. Testimony in Kitzmiller v. Dover showcased how scientists interpret evidence of heritable similarities to support descent with modification while ruling out similarities that result from the convergence of traits from different antecedents.
In Kitzmiller v Dover, a judge ruled once again that anti-evolutionists were imposing religious doctrine. Study of specific evolutionary trajectories illustrates how prior existing parts and configurations have transformed into novel adaptations.

Gill arches have become jaw bones; jaw bones, inner ear bones. The evidence obtained from fossils, strengthened by comparative anatomy among living creatures, and confirmed at the molecular level, convinces both scientists and judges. The Darwinian approach to solving problems bears fruit; similarities are clues. Whether about eye, limb, hippocampus, or flagellum, evolutionists argue quite convincingly that every gradation en route to the new feature or species has proven advantageous within one particular environment or another.
