Jonathan Wells: Zombie Science

0 Replies, 595 Views

This is a presentation of Wells' 2017 book, Zombie Science, which seems to be an update, at least in this presentation, of his Icons of Evolution.
Quote:In his new book Zombie Science, biologist Jonathan Wells asks a simple question: If the icons of evolution were just innocent textbook errors, why do so many of them still persist? Wells gave a presentation about Zombie Science at the book's national launch party recently in Seattle. (see more about the presentation here Watch as Wells explores a new wave of icons walking the halls of science while putting some familiar corpses back in the grave. New topics include DNA, the human eye, vestigial organs, antibiotic resistance, and cancer. Looking past the current zombie outbreak, Wells offers a hopeful vision of science free from the clutches of materialist dogma.

Wells himself is something of an iconoclast, railing against the tyranny of scienceâ€s Darwin-only advocates. His first book, Icons of Evolution, became an international hit by dismantling the outdated and underwhelming “proofs” of evolution that have littered textbooks for decades. For doing so, he was attacked by Darwinâ€s defenders and became one of the most hated figures of the intelligent design movement.
The actual presentation starts at 12:30 or so.

Has anybody here read his books?
