If Wilson correctly reflects intellectual opinion of 1922, is evidence for evolution now better or worse than in 1922? Virtually any research scientist will confirm that evidence is now much better, for at least three reasons. Firstly radiometric dating is now firmly established. Secondly plate tectonics is now recognized as a primary force in geological history. Thirdly, nucleotide sequence comparisons confirm that mutation creates variation, that natural selection operates, and that common ancestry is essentially as Darwin predicted. Scientific advances confirm, rather than refute, evolution
Weaknesses of evolution
Do scientists conceal weaknesses of evolution?Creationists cite disagreements among scientists as evidence against evolution. If these disagreements aren't evidence against evolution what are they?
In 1922 Woodrow Wilson responded to a query:Washington, D.C.Dear Professor Curtiss:
29 August 1922
May it not suffice for me to say in reply to your letter of August 25th, that, of course, like every other man of intelligence and education, I do believe in organic evolution. It surprises me that at this late date such questions should still be raised.
