Recently however, I read Johnson's Wedge of truth, and Well's Icons of Evolution. I was outraged to read about the thin evidence, sloppy evidence and yes, even outright fraud that are presented by Darwinists as the pillars of Darwinsim. I feel a great sense of betrayal that these case studies were presented to me as fact when in one instance the fraud has been known for generations. At best what Wells presents is negligence on the part of text book writers, at worst it is the widespread systematic suppression of dissenting opinions. ...
It is, as previous reviewers have noted, very clearly written so as to be accessible to a wide range of readers, whether they are knowledgeable in scientific matters, or not.
What some previous reviewers seem to have overlooked is the book's subtitle: Why much of what we teach about evolution is wrong. Which means that whilst Wells is dealing with topics central to the discussion of evolution in general, his book approaches the subjects specifically with a view as to how they are presented in popular textbooks used in US schools, colleges and universities.
This inevitably means that from time to time he is dealing with claims and statements which many evolutionary scientists already know are wrong and would not repeat in their own work.
It is also important to note Wells' disclaimer in the Preface where he lists a number of people who assisted him in regard to the technical details in the book. At the end of the list Wells clearly states:
"Listing these people does not imply that they endorse my views. On the contrary, many of them will disagree with my conclusions and recommendations. But for these fine people, science is the search for truth, and I am indebted to them for helping me to get the facts straight."
In other words, he has done his best to fairly and accurately present the facts he is discussing, whilst honestly acknowledging that the experts who helped him in that task do not necessarily share the conclusions he (Wells) draws from those facts.
Seems pretty honest and straight forward to me - a quality all too often missing from this debate. On both sides of the fence.
And what about these "facts"?Read more ›
I'm not sure what I believe at this point, but I can no longer buy the official story. I don't know if I agree with some of Wells' recommendations in his conclusion, but something clearly has to be done. Hysterical defenses of falsified "evidence" by Darwinian disciples at Talk.Origins and elsewhere convinces me that they didn't see this coming, and won't be able to deal with the actual facts involved.
