Evolution poses difficult questions. So what?
Finding one example of something that is difficult to explain with a theory does not invalidate the rest of the theory's explanations.
It's a very curious approach: evaluate the worth of a theory by looking only at its difficulties. I daresay that no theory could stand up to that kind of scrutiny. Every vital, valuable scientific discipline has unexplained questions.
If a creo really wants to attack evolution, try to show how its successes aren't really successes. The best way to do that would be to show how creationism better explains the things that evolution does explain.
I shall now sit back and listen to the deafeningly silent response to this challenge.

Those who would sacrifice an essential liberty for a temporary security will lose both, and deserve neither. -- Benjamin Franklin
