Zombie Science: More Icons of Evolution
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.

Are students learning the whole truth about Darwin’s theory of evolution?
According to a growing number of scientists, the suprising answer is no. They claim that many of the most famous “Icons of Evolution” — including Darwin’s “Tree of Life,” finches from the Galapagos Islands, and embryos that look remarkably similar — are based on outdated research and sloppy logic. They say students are being hurt by the failure to present both sides of an emerging scientific debate over Darwin’s theory.
Come explore this fascinating new conflict over evolution in the classroom — a conflict based on science, not religion. Learn about the controversy that engulfs one town when a teacher actually tries to tell students that some scientists disagree with Darwin.
From the Galapagos Islands to China, Icons of Evolution will take you on a fast-paced, fascinating journey into one of the most controversial issues in today’s public arena.
Memorable Keys to the F-A-R-C-E of Evolution
Hank Hanegraaff wrote his book The FACE that Demonstrates the Farce of Evolution to refute the central claim of Darwin’s theory of evolution that all life is the product not of design but of random, undirected, and purposeless natural processes. Using the memorable acronym F-A-C-E, he explained in detail how Fossil Follies, Ape-men, Chance, and Empirical Science demonstrate the farce of evolution.
Hank has now condensed the key points of that crucial book into the new pocket-sized flipchart, Memorable Keys to the F-A-R-C-E of Evolution, a compact, user-friendly, memory tool printed on sturdy laminated paper to stand up to plenty of use as you strengthen your own faith and share the Truth with others.
How one views their origins will determine how they live their life. Master the arguments that demonstrate the farce of evolution, and remember them for a lifetime.
