Darryl Cunningham: Evolution

I was a bit reluctant to post this link, only because no matter how simple you make it to someone who denies evolution, they will try to discount it.  And then you get trapped in trying to make it more simple, until it finally degenerates the very complex process into a caricature, which is really what the denialists already had in their mind.  Also, this particular link also ends up dealing with the "poo flinging ape" problem.  I find that all too often, creationists and evolution deniers will demand that every single mechanism be explained to them, and no matter how many explanations are provided, they only remember the final instance when they finally managed to ask about a process the explainer was not familiar with.  A very specific item I even deal with at the main Facts, not Fantasy Evolution page (see the last item).


Here then is the beta version of my strip about evolution. This is a chapter of the book Science Stories which will be out from Myriad Editions next spring. I'm sure there'll be mistakes here, so do feel free to point them out, so that I can make the necessary changes. Thank you.
