Following Jonathan Wells's acclaimed book, Icons of Evolution, this video lecture/interview with Dr. Wells focuses on 6 of the 10 icons in the book. Wells shows how biology textbooks distort the scientific evidence to promote Darwinian evolution and the naturalistic philosophy that underlies it.

Darwin called his theory "descent with modification." In the first half of his lecture Wells tackles "descent" by examining three textbook icons: Darwin's Tree of Life, Homology in Vertebrate Limbs, and Haeckel's Embryos. In the second half of his lecture Wells examines "modification" with a close look at three more icons: the Peppered Moths, Darwin's Finches, and Four-Winged Fruit Flies.

Some of these icons of evolution present assumptions or hypotheses as though they were observed facts. Other icons conceal raging controversies among biologists that have far-reaching implications for evolutionary theory. Worst of all, some are directly contrary to well-established scientific evidence.

The video concludes with an exclusive interview with Dr. Wells in which he answers a series of questions about his book and the surprising reaction of the scientific community to his work.

This video is recommended for all students and educators who are studying biological and evolutionary topics, and it is a great study aid for those who are reading the book Icons of Evolution.

Jonathan Wells is a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute's Center for the Renewal of Science and Culture in Seattle. He earned his first Ph.D. from Yale University in religious studies where he wrote a book about the nineteenth-century Darwinian controversies. He earned his second Ph.D. in molecular and cell biology from the University of California at Berkeley where he also did post-doctoral research.
