Vocal Point-Dr. Jonathan Wells

A new book postulates that by dogmatically teaching Darwinism as a fact, we are not teaching our children the truth. Instead, we’re promoting what he calls “Zombie Science.” Dr. Jonathan Wells earned a Ph.D. in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California at Berkley and a Ph.D. on Religious Studies from Yale University. Dr. Wells is a senior fellow with the Discovery Institute. He wrote the classic book in 2000 entitled “Icons of Evolution”—which shows how leading showcases for evolution turn out to be false, e.g., the peppered moths photos were staged, faked drawings of embryos, Darwin’s tree of life, Darwin’s finches’ beaks grow back to normal size when the rain comes back—thus, no net gain for evolution, etc. Dr. Jonathan Wells joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this problem of “Zombie Science.” www.iconsofevolution.com
