Evolution: Textbooks Use Discredited Drawings as Evidence: 'ID The Future' Webcast

The latest 'Intelligent Design The Future' Webcast:

On this episode of ID The Future, CSC's Robert Crowther interviews Dr. Jonathan Wells about the continued use of faked drawings as evidence for Darwinian evolution in textbooks in use in schools today.

In his groundbreaking book, 'Icons of Evolution,' (Amazon UK | US) Wells reported on the continued use as an example of evolution of Ernst Haeckel's 19th century drawings of embryos, even though scientists have known for decades that the drawings were fraudulent. While some textbooks have begun to remove the drawings, many textbooks in science classrooms today still have the drawings and teachers still refer to them as proof of Darwin's evolutionary theory.

For more on this read Wells' article 'Setting the Record Straight' from The American Biology Teacher journal."

This says a lot more about the textbook companies than it does about evolution.
