the evolution debate

Evolution is a Theory. Once a person speaks of "believing in evolution" then the person is abusing a scientific theory as a religion.

Science is a method for gaining understanding of physical phenomena. The spiritual phenomena and understandings are outside of science, and the methodology is poorly applicable at best.

Here is an excerpt from Darwin's own book, on "The Origin of Species" showing that he obviously did not reject the Creator at the time of putting forth his theory about the mechanism.

"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having originally been breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved."

Yep, that is at the tail end of his book, and even the word 'Creator' is capitalized.

I always make a point to say, "No, I do not believe in the theory of evolution, but I do accept the theory evolution to be a valid mechanism of speciation."

That's an untangled view.

There's a lot of unnecessary worry about evolution as being opposed to the concept of a Creator. Given what Darwin actually wrote, I see it as wasted energy. For people who experience the Creator, this can still be appreciated as a possible (though incomplete) understanding of the creative mechanism.

I guess there has been so much abuse of science as religion that the false notion of opposition has been set in stone.

A lot has yet to be learned about the relationships among the species. Many biologists have to let go of current evolution - dogma in order to develop those ideas further.
