Great Infographic Breaks Down The Top 5 Misconceptions About Evolution

Despite being part of the scientific zeitgeist for over 150 years, evolution is still a misunderstood and often muddled concept. 98% of scientists believe that humans have evolved over a long period of time, however evolution still faces a surprising amount of controversy and contention in the world’s culture and politics – such as the notorious issue of teaching evolution in public schools.

“Oh yeah? Well, if we evolved from monkeys, how come monkeys still exist, huh?” Thanks to this infographic from Caleb Trujillo at Molecular Life Sciences some of the main points of evolconfusion and misunderstanding are explained.

  1. it is a very bad theory...if not a theory, then it is a law. We cant observe evolution, there is no law here. It is a theory.Newton's laws are laws bc you cant prove them or understand them like gravity. All scientific assertions are theories, supported by evidences compatible witht the assertions.
    geneology is not evolution, which is species changes over time.
    survival of the fitest is genetic drift, not descent with modification.
    the finches story was proven wrong with molecular genetics.
    monkeys cannot be human. They have different numbers of chromosomes.
    Human only have 200,000 years on earth. There is not enough selection or time to change from anything that becomes todays humans.
    Most "scientists" think evolution theory is a doctrine, like theology. It is rooted to the fact that Darwin himself was a theologian and a Calvinist (that is all his academic training) who believed in pre-destination. (Natural selection concept comes from God's election).
    All theories are working hypotheses in science. We know only the surface of it. In science, there is no absolute truth.
    Recent molecular studies show many other non-Darwin evolution theories. The more you study, the more you find out how wrong Darwin was.
    Evolution does occur but not Darwin's way.
