Recently, myself, RPM, afarensis, Robert Skipper, John Wilkins and John Hawks made about 10 assertions about evolution of about 10 words or less (some participants fudged, no worries, I'm not Tony Soprano). We all went in different directions, but issues that cropped up several times * The relationship between selection and evolution, and its particular elucidation * Mutation is not always deleterious * Common descent of species * Species concepts * The fact that humans are still evolving I haven't done a rigorous comparison, so your thoughts are welcome.
