Icons of Evolution: Science or Myth? Why Much of What We Teach About Evolution Is Wrong
How would you react if told that you and your children have been lied to in science lessons at school and university? Yet this is exactly what has been happening for decades, as `Icons of Evolution' demonstrates.
The author, a Berkeley Ph.D in Biology, is not a creationist, but his book describes many serious misrepresentations of facts commonly found in biology textbooks, which are used to perpetuate belief in evolution. The main part of the book describes ten of these `icons', devoting one chapter to each, and shows what is wrong with them in the light of published scientific evidence. The chapters are all fairly brief, and each is divided into short sections, to make the material easier to assimilate. The author's thesis is amply documented with 71 pages of research notes at the end of the book.
