An Introduction to Jonathan Wells’ monumental book Icons of Evolution in which he argues that the evidence for evolution does not appear as clear as its proponents suggest.
Jonathan Wells (2005) Do centrioles generate a polar ejection force? Riv Biol 98:71-95. PMID: 15889341 Abstract: A microtubule-dependent polar ejection force that pushes chromosomes away from spindle poles during prometaphase is observed in animal cells but not in the cells of higher plants. Elongating microtubules and kinesin-like motor molecules have been proposed as possible causes, but neither accounts for all Read More ›

Evolution has been widely accepted in scientific circles ever since Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species revolutionised biological sciences 145 years ago. But the new theory’s support Read More ›

And should they learn about the best current evidence for evolution, or should they study outdated examples that have been discredited by the scientific community? Those are the real issues Discovery Institute has raised with the Texas State Read More ›
