ZOMBIE SCIENCE: More Icons of Evolution - Book
By Jonathan Wells
In 2000, biologist Jonathan Wells took the science world by storm with Icons of Evolution, a book showing how biology textbooks routinely promote Darwinism using bogus evidence--icons of evolution like Ernst Haeckel's faked embryo drawings and peppered moths glued to tree trunks. Critics of the book complained that Wells had merely gathered up a handful of innocent textbook errors and blown them out of proportion. Wells here asks a simple question: If the icons of evolution were just innocent textbook errors, why do so many of them still persist? Wells argues, science is being corrupted. Empirical science is devolving into zombie science, shuffling along unfazed by opposing evidence.
Discredited icons of evolution rise from the dead while more icons, equally bogus, join their ranks. Like a B horror movie, they just keep coming! It threatens our whole culture. Is there a solution? Wells points the way.
