Exhuming the Peppered Mummy

The peppered myth died several years ago when scientists discovered that photos of peppered moths on tree trunks - used in most biology textbooks to convince students of Darwinian evolution - had been staged.

Now, in a lecture in Sweden on August 23, 2007, Cambridge University biologist Michael Majerus has disinterred the corpse. He announced that by looking out his window at moths in the back yard he had found new evidence that peppered moths are "proof of Darwinian evolution," that humans invented God, and that there will be "no second coming; no helping hand from on high."

No, this was not on "The Simpsons." This really happened. To read more about how someone could think that moths in his back yard disprove the existence of God, go HERE.
