Now that’s a provocative title coming from an evolutionary biologist, isn’t it? Well, it’s meant to be.
I am continually amazed by both creationists and evolutionary biologists alike in the ongoing “debate” about the validity of evolution. Many creationists feel that if they can find a single instance in which Charles Darwin was wrong about the workings of evolution, the entire idea that biological evolution shapes the biota of the world around us will be shown to be a complete fraud. Moreover, many evolutionary biologists fall to an extremely defensive position because of this.
