Showtime Networks will air filmmaker Randy Olson’s fanciful evolution film Flock of Dodos this week, apparently not realizing that key parts of the film are so wildly inaccurate that they amount to a hoax. One of the film’s worst errors is its claim that modern biology textbooks have not used illustrations derived from Ernst Haeckel’s fraudulent 19th century embryo drawings as evidence for evolution. On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin shares a clip from the film Icons of Evolution which debunks one of the biggest myths in Dodos by explaining how, contrary to Olson’s film, these bogus drawings that misstate the evidence for evolution have been endlessly recycled in modern textbooks.
