Bad design

The argument from bad design is one of the strongest arguments that living things are evolved, not designed.

Charles Darwin

"Creationism" and "Intelligent design"

Evolutionary biology conflicts with some people's religious beliefs in a way that most branches of science do not.

As a result, it is the object of controversy for some religious people. It is a controversy caused entirely by religion, not by science. If you did not have those religious beliefs, you would not find the science remotely controversial.

On the Internet since 1987.

Wikipedia: Sometimes I link to Wikipedia. I have written something In defence of Wikipedia. It is often a useful starting point but you cannot trust it. Linking to it is like linking to a Google search. A starting point, not a destination. I automatically highlight in red all links to Wikipedia and Google search and other possibly-unreliable user-generated content.
