Is evolution a tested verified settled science?

There many unanswered issues in regards to evolution theory. Some but not all include, "Lack of a viable mechanism for producing high levels of complex and specified information. Related to this are problems with the Darwinian mechanism producing irreducibly complex features, and the problems of non-functional... show more There many unanswered issues in regards to evolution theory. Some but not all include, "Lack of a viable mechanism for producing high levels of complex and specified information. Related to this are problems with the Darwinian mechanism producing irreducibly complex features, and the problems of non-functional or deleterious intermediate stages.The failure of the fossil record to provide support for Darwinian evolution.The failure of molecular biology to provide evidence for a grand “tree of life.” Natural selection is an extremely inefficient method of spreading traits in populations unless a trait has an extremely high selection coefficient; The problem that convergent evolution appears rampant — at both the genetic and morphological levels, even though under Darwinian theory this is highly unlikely. The failure of chemistry to explain the origin of the genetic code.The failure of developmental biology to explain why vertebrate embryos diverge from the beginning of development. The failure of neo-Darwinian evolution to explain the bio-geographical distribution of many species.A long history of inaccurate predictions inspired by neo-Darwinism regarding vestigial organs or so-called “junk” DNA.Humans show many behavioral and cognitive traits and abilities that offer no apparent survival advantage (e.g. music, art, religion, ability to ponder the nature of the universe)."
