What people are saying about
Jonathan Wells and
Icons of Evolution

Wells is an iconoclast. He’s literally an icon smasher.

– Dr. Richard Sternberg, evolutionary biologist, Biologic Institute

When I first read Icons of Evolution, I thought this book is going to be a blockbuster.

– Dr. Michael Behe, biochemist, Lehigh University

I knew right from the start when Jonathan had this idea that this book would make a big difference.  And it has made a big difference.

– Dr. Paul Nelson, philosopher of biology, Discovery Institute

Icons of Evolution opened people’s eyes up to just how many scientific flaws there are in textbooks regarding evolution.

– Casey Luskin, MS earth science, public policy officer, Center for Science & Culture

"The scientific leaders tell us that science is the search for the truth science cannot coexist with lies. We all assume that textbooks contain only a few misprints and minor factual errors. But, is that really so? The public should be aware of how textbooks throughout our education system misuse these icons and addressing the issue Wells has done a great public service. ... His arguments are easy for laymen to follow. However, the extensive coverage of all the icons of Darwinism in the diverse fields of Biology, with extensive research notes, makes this volume a valuable reference for a professional biologist. "Icons of Evolution" is a must-read for all who are interested in science, and especially in the arguments for and against Darwinism.

– Paul Chien, Department of Biology, University of San Francisco

Jonathan Wells has done us all, the scientific community, educators, and the wider public, a great service. In "Icons of Evolution" he has brilliantly exposed the exaggerated claims and deceptions that have persisted in standard textbook discussions of biological origins for many decades, in spite of contrary evidence. These claims have been so often repeated that they seem unassailable, that is, until one reads Wells's book.

– Dean H. Kenyon, Professor of Biology, San Francisco State University (retired)

"This is one of the most important books ever written about the evolution controversy. It shows how devotion to the ideology of Darwinism has led to textbooks which are full of misinformation."

– Phillip E. Johnson, professor of law, UC Berkeley, author of "The Wedge of Truth" (retired)
