Krauthammer's central points are that A) belief in God and acknowledging the scientific validity of natural selection are not incompatible, and B) belief in God and recognizing that "intelligent design" is junk science are not incompatible.

Is Krauthammer a scientist? Or a theologian? Or both?

Krauthammer is a medical doctor, so his scientific background is fairly extensive.

From reading his columns over time I've gleaned that he's most likely a religious man (Jewish), although I'd hesitate to call him a "theologian."

The bird flu virus is not evolving.
It's mutating. It's a virus that has been around for a long time and is changing slightly.
There are plenty of examples of mutation in biology which ARE observable.
Evolution is a separate matter. It is a theory.
Despite Darwin's title "Origin of the Species", no new species has been shown to originate from another.
