Top 5 misconceptions about evolution: A guide to demystify the foundation of modern biology.

Version 1.0

Here is an infographic to help inform citizens.  From my experience most people who misunderstand evolution are actually misinformed about what science is and how it operates.  That said, here are five of the biggest barriers faced when one explains evolution - I have faced these and they are documented in the literature.

I hope you can build on my work and improve the communication between the scientists and the public.

Want to do more?  If you want to donate to the cause of science education I suggest the National Center for Science Education, your local university, or an equivalent organization.  Volunteering at schools and inviting scientists into classrooms are two ways to encourage an informed society.  Attend hearings if school boards start questioning evolution’s role in public curriculum.  Raise a storm if anyone tries to ban science.  Plus, it never hurts to reblog a well made evolution post.

Thank you followers for all your support!

I'm a believer that there's life beyond the confines of our planet. Not necessarily aliens like how they are portrayed in the movies. Perhaps even just micro-organisms. The universe is vast after all and the possibility of life out there is very likely. If or when it is proven that there is life in other planets, how do you thing the church will react? Their stand? Do you think it might end religion?

Religious folks (at least the majority in the US) believe evolution is false. A microorganism in Mars won’t change their minds. I actually suspect no amount of evidence will.

In reason:
