Evolution T/F Quiz
Since, 1) I will be teaching intro. to physical anthropology in the fall, and 2) I found out "they" are attempting to open a creationist museum on the border on Ohio and Kentucky, I figured I would just see for myself were Americans stand on the idea of evolution. 3 out of 9 congressmen polled about whether they believed in "evolution" or not stated that they didn't. That to me is scary.
Please indicate whether each following statement is true or false, in terms of how you think biologists use and understand the term "evolution" today. YOU do NOT necessarily have to AGREE with the statement for it to be "true" as you think biologists see it. The purpose of this is to determine the collective level of understanding on this topic. In every case below, "evolution" means "biological evolution".
