Icons of Evolution | The Growing Scientific Controversy Over Darwin
“True science and freedom of thought are inseparable, but as this new DVD shows, some scientists prefer power to truth.” – Phillip Johnson, Author of Darwin on Trial
For decades, Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution has been taught and accepted by mainstream educators as fact. But now, new scientific evidence is emerging that places Darwin’s theory under closer scrutiny than ever before. It’s about time, isn’t it? In every other area of education, students are encouraged to consider all viewpoints. But somehow, Darwin’s theory has been the exception… until now.
Icons of Evolution is a powerful and persuasive new DVD that makes the latest findings in science accessible and understandable to all of us. It gives an honest evaluation of the many flaws in the primary examples used in Darwin’s theory of evolution. Leading scientists from secular universities are among those who point out the faulty logic and outdated research Darwin used in determining conclusions about the Galapagos Island finches, the “Tree of Life” and other hallmarks of the theory of evolution. Scientists and researchers report their findings — and tell why it’s time to reevaluate what’s being taught to our children in school. As one scientist remarked, “You go where the data leads you,” rather than start from the conclusion of evolution in mind.
For anyone who wants to discover the exciting evidence, Icons is essential and enlightening viewing. After seeing it, you’ll understand more clearly than ever why it’s time for educators–and society as a whole–to discover what science is finally acknowledging: Darwin’s theory is outdated at best and intelligent design should be presented as a valid alternative.
Explore the fascinating new conflict over evolution in the classroom, a conflict based on science, not religion. Learn about the controversy that engulfs one town when a teacher actually tries to tell students that some scientists disagree with Darwin.
From the Galapagos Islands to China, Icons of Evolution takes you on a fast-paced, fascinating journey into one of the most interesting issues in American society. The icons of evolution discussed include: Galapagos Island finches, Darwin’s Tree of Evolution, fruit fly mutations, antibiotic resistant bacteria, homology (likeness of structures in different animals and man), fossil record of simple to complex, and fetal comparisons of different animals and man.
