The most often used proofs of Darwinian and neo-Darwinian evolution used
in high-school and college text books are misleading and in some cases
The illustrations in this book are done in the
same font as the text, and no attempt is made to fit them on the pages.
The text is very clear.
Darwin was not inspired by the finches on the Galapagos islands.
Haeckelís drawings of embryos are false.
Embryos of different species diverge in the early stages more than in the middle stages.
The pepper moths do not normally rest on tree trunks and the photos of them doing
so are staged.
(He fails to mention that the pepper moths, whether they turn dark or light
are still the same species.)
