No Joke: Richard Dawkins Still Peddling Haeckel's Fraudulent Embryo Diagrams!

I thought Richard Dawkins' science was outdated, but I didn't realize just how badly outdated until I watched this amazing You Tube clip from "The Genius of Charles Darwin," a science documentary Dawkins hosted last year. If you watch until 7 minutes and 30 seconds into the clip, you will see Ernst Haeckel's bogus embryo diagrams magically appear onscreen right before your very eyes:

That's right, Richard Dawkins circa 2008 was still peddling fraudulent "evidence" for evolution that no self-respecting embryologist would defend, and that most biology textbooks dropped years ago due in large part to biologist Jonathan Wells' masterful book Icons of Evolution, which shamed Darwinists into cleaning up their act. Randy Olson, call home. Armed with retro science like this, no wonder Dawkins is afraid to debate Stephen Meyer.
