Jonathan Wells’ new book, Zombie Science takes up the topics of his earlier book, Icons of Evolution (2000). Nothing has changed. Largely the same old dust-covered discredited icons.
What is one to make of claims that Darwinism is a robust vision of evolution if stuff that was questionable back then is plopped into edition after edition of biology textbooks today?
The conventional term for that sort of thing is cultural decline. Live systems are self-correcting.

Watch Jonathan Wells live online as he presents Zombie Science on Tues., April 18th
If the icons of evolution were just innocent textbook errors, why do so many of them still persist? Find out when you tune into the live stream of Tuesday’s national book party for Zombie Science. Think of it as a sort of digital march for science that you can easily participate in.
Science has enriched our lives and led to countless discoveries. But now, Jonathan Wells argues, it’s being corrupted. Empirical science is devolving into zombie science, shuffling along unfazed by opposing evidence.
Wells will present his case against zombie science at a launch party in Seattle, and you can watch as the event will be https://www.facebook.com/discoverycsc/ 7:30pm PDT, Tuesday, April 18th. Please share this information with your friends and family and be sure to tune in!
