I've got a AAAS (S supposedly = "Science") book in hand called "The
Evolution Dialogues: Science, Christianity, and the Quest for
I'd expect better from the AAAS, but right here on page 141 is this
statement: "The evolution of seeds enabled plants to spread rapidly and
diversify into ferns, mosses, horsetails, cycads, and, later, conifers."
I think that would make a good botany exam question: "What is wrong
with the following statment?"
On the previous page, the book is off on the time of the rise of
flowering plants by about 10 million years.
Doesn't *anyone* employ a fact-checker for publications anymore???
