Hoax of Dodos

Were Ernst Haeckel’s bogus embryo diagrams ever used in modern textbooks to prove evolution? Not according to filmmaker Olson, who in the film portrays biologist Jonathan Wells as a fraud for claiming in his book Icons of Evolution (2000) that modern biology textbooks continue to reprint Haeckel-based drawings. But it turns out that Olson is the one who is promoting a fraud–the diagrams in question were unquestionably used in modern textbooks.
