There is very little that fit the former criteria, but evolution absolutely fits the latter.Popularized most recently by Ray Comfort’s mind-bendingly bad, gospel-poisoning movie, “Evolution vs.God,” this claim generally betrays not only a misunderstanding of evolution, but science in general.And I’ve found that the same is often true of anti-evolutionists — in my experience, anyway.So, as a free public service to my friends who think evolution should be spelled “evilution,” I offer the following Top 10 Signs That You Don’t Understand Evolution At All. You think “it hasn’t been observed” is a good argument against it.According to the most recent Gallup poll of Americans’ views on evolution, almost half of all respondents rejected the mainstream view of human origins.The number — 46 percent — has not changed meaningfully in more than two decades.
