Top 5 misconceptions about evolution: A guide to demystify the foundation of modern biology.

Version 1.0

Here is an infographic to help inform citizens.  From my experience most people who misunderstand evolution are actually misinformed about what science is and how it operates.  That said, here are five of the biggest barriers faced when one explains evolution - I have faced these and they are documented in the literature.

I hope you can build on my work and improve the communication between the scientists and the public.

Want to do more?  If you want to donate to the cause of science education I suggest the National Center for Science Education http://ncse.com, your local university, or an equivalent organization.  Volunteering at schools and inviting scientists into classrooms are two ways to encourage an informed society.  Attend hearings if school boards start questioning evolution’s role in public curriculum.  Raise a storm if anyone tries to ban science.  Plus, it never hurts to reblog a well made evolution post.

Thank you followers for all your support!
Love,

Mathartstravaganza

Amazing gallery of mathematical art from the 2013 Bridges Conference, a ton more at the link. Dig through a decade worth of math art in the Bridges archive.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be staring at math art basically forever.

From top, L-R: David Reimann’s “1944”, Phil Webster’s “Screened Icosahedron” and “Fractal Star and Flower”, Hongtaek Hwang and Gyungsoo Woo “Stars Over the Alhambra Palace” and Anne and Michael Chupa’s fractal floral wonders.

A rare albino green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) swims in a tank at the Sea Turtle Reserve Centre in Kosgoda, Sri Lanka. The centre collects turtle eggs from the beaches for hatching before poachers remove them as they are considered a delicacy. Once hatched the small turtles are let free in the sea. (2010)
