In the spirit of the recent thread, I decided to make this one.

So let's all pitch in and do it. Contribute what you like, but let's try and reach 50 misconceptions about evolution that people have. Humor is welcome.

I'll start a few

1) Evolution gives you what you need

2) We popped out of monkeys one day

3) The theory of evolution is tied to the big bang theory

4) The theory of evolution says random chemicals mysteriously made the first cell

5) Darwin took back his theory of evolution on his death bed (that's an urban myth created by christians)

7.) That things evolve 'magically' without selection involved. It's just some slow process...

At least this is what I believed as a kid!

8.) That evolution equals eugenics.

9.) That it has a GOAL.

10.) That it can happen to anything, even watches and pottery.

11.) That it's a scientific conspiracy theory we believe in to battle Christianity.

12.) That evolution equals atheism.

13.) That there is an actual difference between micro and macro-evolution.

Dammit! Beat me to it!:mad:

Well this is actually true. The clearly unguided, random nature of our existence points to the abscence of a supreme intelligence. Despite all the theistic evolutionists, the process of evolution has no goal and msot importantly, no foresight. Evolution isn't necessarily atheism, but no God is compatable with it.

No, it isn't true. There are lots of theists who accept evolution as correct.

And for the list:

17.) The second law of thermodynamics makes evolution impossible.

The process is exactly the same. The two terms are just used when considering the quantity of evolutionary changes between two specimens over time. You can't observe micro or macroevoluion. You can only observe evolution and then classify it as macro or micro.

20) Survival of the fittest means organisms should go kill off weaker members of its species to make survival easier for the stronger members.

23) Only the fittest survive. (In actuality, if an organism can barely get by then it classified into the "fit" category).
