Jonathan Wells

Dr. Jonathan Wells is a biologist who objects to the way evolution is taught in America. His book, Icons of Evolution, criticizes ten major distortions of science which evolution advocates and especially biology textbooks use to support standard evolutionary theory.

Wells, a prominent advocate of intelligent design, is a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture. [1] Dr. Wells has obtained two Ph.D.s. - one in molecular and cell biology from the University of California at Berkeley, and the other in religious studies from Yale University.[2]

In the late 1970s, Wells decided through his studies, conversations with God, and prayer to devote his life to destroying Darwinism.[1]

Icons of Evolution

Icons of Evolution is a book by Jonathan Wells which argues that 'the best-known “evidences” for Darwin’s theory have been exaggerated, distorted or even faked.'[2][3][4][5]

Wells explains his title in the book's introduction:

These examples are so frequently used as evidence for Darwin's theory that most of them have been called "icons" of evolution. Yet all of them, in one way or another, misrepresent the truth. (p. 7)
