Is that really the question you want to ask?

Is the thread title what you meant it to be?

Facepalm

My scepticism leads me to accept Evolution Wink
I gather you are asking "Does anyone here reject Evolution for non-religious reasons?"
Or maybe: "Does anyone anywhere have any credible non-religious objection to Evolution?". Something like that?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

There, now those would at least makes a little sense.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

Evolution is a fact.

8000 years before Jesus, the Egyptian god Horus said, "I am the way, the truth, the life."

Keep in mind that skepticism isn't black and white, it's a matter of degrees and applies to just about any topic you care to name. Every time somebody doesn't send their banking information to that nice man in Nigeria they are being a skeptic.

Skeptics who are not Christians: You're looking at them. Atheism is largely skepticism of religious claims. We're also skeptical of a variety of other subjects depending on our own personal interests, biases and prejudices.

Skeptics who are Christians: Yes. Many. Fundamentalists are frequently skeptical of evolution, scientific claims, atheism and the decency of anybody who doesn't share in their beliefs. Moderates are skeptical of some more rational notions, including those of the fundamentalists, anything seen on Faux Snooze, whether the sale at Big Box is really a better value and whether that politician is really giving them any tiny piece of the truth.
