Jonathan Wells convincingly demonstrates that the evidence and examples of Darwinian evolution commonly found in biology textbooks are either misleading or false. Wells carefully documents his thesis from the work of evolutionary biologists, explaining that the "icons" of evolution are nothing more than scientific myths in most cases. The evolutionary icons addressed by Wells include the Miller-Urey experiment, Archaeopteryx as the missing link connecting birds to reptiles, speciation among Darwin's finches, and others. Icons of Evolution provides a critical tool for parents and students needing to respond to the evolution theories promoted throughout most biology textbooks.
