Nothing in biology makes sense except in light of evolution
In fact, over the last 100 years, almost all of biology has proceeded independent of evolution, except evolutionary biology itself. Molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology, have not taken evolution into account at all.
My two cents
I remember being told by a scientific apologist (in a condescending way) that one cannot claim to be scientifically literate without understanding that evolution unifies biology. But Marc Kirschner disputes that.
Interestingly, Theodosius Dobzhansky is Eastern Orthodox, yet according to his Wikipedia article, he rejected “the existence of a personal God and of life beyond physical death.” This combination of watered-down theism and naturalism seems schizophrenic, existentialist, and syncretistic to me.
