What are the most important misconceptions about evolution?
Misconceptions about evolution abound, but rather too little is said about them. I’d like to open a discussion here, in the comments. In the slightly longer run, we could have a series of articles about them; I’d be happy to post these on behalf of their authors. But first, it would help to have a discussion of what are the most important, and most misleading, misconceptions about evolution.
Another good source of information on this is the Talk Origins Archive which has quite a few excellent articles. The most widely-cited is probably Doug Theobald’s outstanding “29+ Evidences of Macroevolution”. Without detracting from the great service that the TOA is providing, it has been less actively updated lately. So having some more discussions here seems like a good idea. Perhaps we can compile a master list of misconceptions. Let’s discuss.
