Misconceptions about Evolution

Lecture no. 9 from the course: Understanding the Misconceptions of Science

Misconceptions about Evolution

Taught by Professor Don Lincoln | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

It’s often the misconceptions about evolution that lead people to not believe in it. This lecture tackles four prevalent myths about the theory of evolution: that it explains how life began, that it states humans descended from chimpanzees, that evolution has a goal, and that evolution means more complex organisms will evolve.

This is an excellent series of talks with great illustrations and explanations. I was amazed at how my earlier school education was so wrong (how plane wings work!) Even if you are a scientist you will learn lots of your own misconceptions.
