Misconceptions about Evolution
Let’s face it. Pooh Bear really hit the nail on the head with his famous statement.
It’s not easy trying to run a household, cook, clean, train children, transport said children to various places and activities, homeschool them, and on top of that have time to further our own education.
But we do it. If our – or our children’s – health depended on it, we would do everything we can to read up on a topic and arm ourselves with knowledge. We force ourselves to be familiar with long, confusing terms. We find out what we can from different, and sometimes conflicting, sources and we form a conclusion and/or decide on a course of action. Hopefully.
In the case of Evolution, it is a hard and frustrating topic to understand, especially when the information presented uses technical language. And the articles are SO long. And when one has trouble remembering what one learned in high school biology it adds to the challenge, especially when it seems one needs to possess a science degree from an Ivy League university to understand the material! It’s enough to give one a headache.
Can somebody dumb it down, please? Thankfully, somebody has!
The University of California, Berkeley, has created a website that explores some of the misconceptions of Evolution in a simple, and easy-to-understand manner. It is done in bite-sized pieces, so you don’t get overwhelmed.
