If you are not affiliated with an Abrahamic religion, I am curious to hear how Evolution affects, coincides or contradicts your spiritual beliefs. In this context, I will offer no rebuttals or discourse; this is topic is specifically to attain views from those whom I rarely hear from.
Karna continues to be renowned for his generosity and fearlessness. With immense prowess, he had the vigor of the Sun deity.
Defeating Jarasena himself by attempting to bifurcate the evil ruler of Magadha and moving the Chariot of Arjuna with Krishna and hanuman.
Though having the most unfair fate of all characters in Mahabharata, he excelled at archery. Some would say, more than Arjuna's might.

Note point number 7. Students “are reminded …” that the flagellum “could not have evolved slowly.” In other words, for all the appearance of objectivity that preceded article 7, students are now told unequivocally that intelligent-design creationism is fact and the modern synthesis is flawed."
