Item description for Icons of Evolution: Science or Myth?: Why Much of What We Teach about Evolution is Wrong by Jonathan Wells & Jody F. Sjogren...
Overview Compares the icons of evolution with scientific evidence that questions the validity of Darwin's theory of evolution and the accuracy of textbook discussions of biological origins.
Publishers Description How would you react if told that you and your children have been lied to in science lessons at school and university? Yet this is exactly what has been happening for decades, as Icons of Evolution' demonstrates. The author, a Berkeley Ph.D in Biology, is not a creationist, but his book describes many serious misrepresentations of facts commonly found in biology textbooks, which are used to perpetuate belief in evolution. The main part of the book describes ten of these icons', devoting one chapter to each, and shows what is wrong with them in the light of published scientific evidence. The chapters are all fairly brief, and each is divided into short sections, to make the material easier to assimilate. The author's thesis is amply documented with 71 pages of research notes at the end of the book.

More About Jonathan Wells & Jody F. Sjogren
By the time Jonathan Wells turned 22 he was living a lifestyle that probably seemed totally unrealistic to everyone he knew. He had completely abandoned his suburban roots to begin his own personal life quest. Living deep in the forest of southern Oregon, Jonathan stripped his life down to the absolute bare minimum so he could start over from scratch. That's where his real life journey began. More than three decades later Jonathan still loves being surrounded by nature. He considers himself to be an avid student of life, nothing more. He truly believes that living and learning should always go hand in hand and that we can all make a meaningful contribution by sharing what we learn along the way. Over the years he has come to fully appreciate the incredible value that comes from connecting with your TRUE SELF. One of Jonathan's greatest passions in life is to help others make that connection.

Essential May 26, 2008
This book is essential for any scientist who accepts dogma without examining the evidence firsthand. I thought he handled the peppered moths and Darwin's finches especially well.
More detailed information for deeper understanding Apr 29, 2008
I bought this because it was recommended in more general books on Intelligent Design. It goes into lots of detail about the whys and wherefores of the icons. The overall conclusions are treated in the more general books.
PUTS AN END TO THE DECEPTION Feb 29, 2008
This book effectively lays to rest one of the greatest deceptions ever foisted on "John Q. Public". The purely philosophical concept of "macro-evolution" parading as "scientific viewpoint" is one of the most disgraceful manifestations of materialist propaganda in the long history of Western science. Do yourself a favor. Obtain, read and understand this book. The related video is also excellent.
Darwin ain't splain nuttin Lucy! Feb 13, 2008
It is amusing that evolutionists think they have even began to explain anything (or even observed much of "life" ), through their atheistic religion. Invariant, spaceless, timeless entities like the laws of logic, which they must use to argue against ID theory, slap them right back in the face!
Science Prevails Over Darwinist Religion Dec 28, 2007
I plea to the scientific community to simply read this book with an open mind. DVD of this book is also available. this site recommended buys with this book talk from mathematic, anthropological, logical, and biochemical/genetics perspectives.
The book was a shock to me and my father, a mathematician and physicist. It had no religion or faith based creation arguments one would expect. What it did have was:
1. Deep scientific perspective into each of "evidences" we were all exposed to in schools and believe in.
2. Unbiased facts and quotations from well respected and reliable scientists, including geneticists, mathematicians, anthropologists, biochemists, and others.
3. Latest developments in science of anthropology, molecular biology, and genetics factually pointing against Darwinist origin of species.
4. Unbiased, factual, and truthful statements by Darwinist Evolution claims.
5. No religion, philosophy, psychology, or feelings based arguments. Pure science and facts.
Most scientists blindly believe in Darwin's evolution due to lack of full latest knowledge. Some might have invested their career, reputation, and titles, betting on Darwin. Others are afraid to speak out to be ridiculed as non-scientific religious freaks.
Human race is on the brinks of the most historic development in it's history. for the first time, not religion or faith, but science begins to point out beyond the reasonable doubt in creation of life on earth by intelligent design, whatever it might have been.
If you are a scientist, ask yourself this question. would you like to go down in history as one of the first to do your part in revealing the true science over Darwinist Religion? Darwinist theory will not survive the scientific tests and facts in the 21st century.
Discovery Institute may be a great place for you to start.
