On this episode of ID The Future CSC’s Casey Luskin discusses false information promoted by filmmaker Randy Olson regarding a 1994 textbook that used Haeckel’s fraudulent embryo drawings to promote evolution.

Olson claims the textbook uses the faked drawings to merely discuss “historical perspectives in biology,” but the textbooks don’t lie: this podcast exposes what the textbook really says and how it uses Haeckel’s faked drawings to promote evolution. Olson has even admitted that it is the “agenda” of his film Flock of Dodos to make Haeckel’s fraudulent embryo drawings the “battlefield” for the debate over intelligent design.
