Was Darwin Wrong?

The November 2004 National Geographic had a great cover story, giving an emphatic no to its headline question. Only a brief excerpt of the article is online; it's worth reading, but it's better to find the whole magazine. Writer David Quammen has been nominated for a National Magazine Award.

The excerpt does include a very clear and easy-to-understand description of what a scientific theory actually is. It wouldn't be a bad idea to reprint it on every other page of all K-12 science textbooks.

Yes, many students read the stickers on high school textbooks that say, "evolution is just a theory" but never actually learn what a theory is.
