Response to “10 questions to ask your biology teacher”

*Update: I commented on the post I’ve linked to below.  The comment did not show up.  I commented again asking why my previous comment wasn’t posted, but that one hasn’t appeared either.  Oh well.

As a biology teacher, naturally this post piqued my interest.

With a little bit of searching, I found that these “questions” seem to be regurgitations from Jonathan Wells’ Icons of Evolution, a book stating that some of the best-known evidences for evolution are fraudulent. 

Thankfully, someone has already done the work for us in refuting these “questions” aimed at disproving evolutionary theory in the classroom.

Each question is discussed in some detail on Talk Origins.  You can read about it here.

    Dam. It seems that Wells has rebutted the rebuttals in some detail.

  8. Wells didn’t rebut the rebuttals in some detail. He responded to one concise rebuttal from the NCSE.
