people are saying about
Jonathan Wells and
Icons of Evolution
Wells is an iconoclast. He’s literally an icon smasher.
When I first read Icons of Evolution, I thought this book is going to be a blockbuster.
I knew right from the start when Jonathan had this idea that this book would make a big difference. And it has made a big difference.
Icons of Evolution opened people’s eyes up to just how many scientific flaws there are in textbooks regarding evolution.
"The scientific leaders tell us that science is the search for the truth science
cannot coexist with lies. We all assume that textbooks contain only a few
misprints and minor factual errors. But, is that really so? The public should
be aware of how textbooks throughout our education system misuse these icons
and addressing the issue Wells has done a great public service. ... His
arguments are easy for laymen to follow. However, the extensive coverage
of all the icons of Darwinism in the diverse fields of Biology, with extensive
research notes, makes this volume a valuable reference for a professional
biologist. "Icons of Evolution" is a must-read for all who are interested
in science, and especially in the arguments for and against Darwinism.
Jonathan Wells has done us all, the scientific community, educators, and
the wider public, a great service. In "Icons of Evolution" he has brilliantly
exposed the exaggerated claims and deceptions that have persisted in standard
textbook discussions of biological origins for many decades, in spite
of contrary evidence. These claims have been so often repeated that they
seem unassailable, that is, until one reads Wells's book.
"This is one of the most important books ever written about the evolution
controversy. It shows how devotion to the ideology of Darwinism has led
to textbooks which are full of misinformation."
