Overview

Zombie Science by Jonathan Wells

In 2000, biologist Jonathan Wells took the science world by storm with Icons of Evolution, a book showing how biology textbooks routinely promote Darwinism using bogus evidence--icons of evolution like Ernst Haeckel's faked embryo drawings and peppered moths glued to tree trunks. Critics of the book complained that Wells had merely gathered up a handful of innocent textbook errors and blown them out of proportion. Now, in Zombie Science, Wells asks a simple question: If the icons of evolution were just innocent textbook errors, why do so many of them still persist? Science has enriched our lives and led to countless discoveries. But now, Wells argues, it's being corrupted. Empirical science is devolving into zombie science, shuffling along unfazed by opposing evidence. Discredited icons of evolution rise from the dead while more icons--equally bogus--join their ranks. Like a B horror movie, they just keep coming! Zombies are make believe, but zombie science is real--and it threatens not just science, but our whole culture. Is there a solution? Wells is sure of it, and points the way.
