Are students learning the whole truth about Darwin’s theory of evolution?
According to a growing number of scientists, the surprising answer is no.
Many scientists now claim that many of the most famous “Icons of Evolution” –including Darwin’s “Tree of Life,” finches from the Galapagos Islands, and embryos that look remarkably similar – are based on outdated research and sloppy logic.
Yet all these false facts are still being presented in many school biology textbooks as evidence for the validity of Darwin’s theory.
They say students are being hurt by the failure to present both sides of the scientific debate over Darwin’s theory.
