    Ernst Haeckel’s comparative embryo picture that he likely faked to bolster his claims. ID wackos claim Darwin’s theories rely crucially on Haeckel’s work and hence must be flawed. PZ Myers, a biologist at Univ. of Minnesota recently wrote a famous rebuttal to one such argument put forth in the creationist book “Icons of Evolution”.

    Pharyngula is a blog on ScienceBlogs run by PZ Myers, a professor at the University of Minnesota. The top row in the first pic shows the pharyngula stage in embryonic development in Haeckel’s drawings.

    Intelligent Design?
    Haeckel embryos (1), which is evidence for a common ancestor to all vertebrates, is said to have faked data and is used by ID advocates to refute evolution (Icons of Evolution). PZ Myers (2) is an evolutionary biologist, who ripped apart that criticism.
