I am very curious about the "evidence" being cited to cast doubt on the
accuracy of cell theory and the germ theory of disease. This is new. Can
anyone shed light, or point me in a direction where I can find it myself?

What if there isn't any? Could the inclusion of more than one theory be intended simply as cover for the fact that the whole point is to foster attacks on evolutionary theory?
