New Scientist has a pretty good article on myths and misconceptions about evolution (see Evolution: 24 myths and misconceptions).
They really hit on many of my pet peeves on evolution. Among my favorites:
- Everything is an adaptation produced by natural selection
- Natural selection leads to ever-greater complexity
- The bacterial flagellum is irreducibly complex
- Darwin is the ultimate authority on evolution
Many of these fit in well with my Adaptationomics Award which I will start giving out again soon ….
