You haven’t “come across an actual scientist who questions evolution”?

How about Richard Smalley, winner of the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry; Sir John Eccles, winner of the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1963; Ernst Boris Chain, winner of the 1945 Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology; Wolfgang Pauli, winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1945; and Guglielmo Marconi (1874–1937), winner of the 1909 Nobel Prize in Physics?

Not one of those actual scientists endorsed Darwinian evolution.

What I don't see in that rather short list of scientists who supposedly reject the overwhelming evidence of evolution is a single scientist who works (or worked) in a discipline directly related to evolution. I also notice that all but one predates the molecular biology revolution, which verified and advanced the field of evolution far beyond what anyone would have thought possible even 50 years ago.

It is one thing to find a scientist working in a normally evolutionary science who avoids doing any research related to evolution. There are a handful of those. (By actively avoiding evolutionary research, they are, in fact, acknowledging its existence.) But let me know when you find an actual scientist who works within a normally evolutionary discipline, whose work uses evolutionary principles, who claims that evolution doesn't happen.

As I said, I have never met a scientist who denies the process of evolution, and I've met a lot of scientists. My own PhD work was very much based on evolutionary questions.
