"Evolution has never adequately defended itself against the empirical evidence of punctuated equilibrium. If evolution as an explanation of the origins of life can't hold water, then how can one put the same burden of proof on any other theory."
Evolution has NEVER BEEN an explanation for the origins of life. And Punctuated Equalibria theory is not about the origins of life either. Nor is it opposed to evolution in any way, or to natural selection. Nothing you stated is correct.

("There is a grandeur in this view of life...")
Evolution has NEVER BEEN an explanation for the origins of life.
A good many biology textbooks suggest the origin of life as a particular combination of molecules apart from any intelligent agent and leave it at that.
