In BriefIn a TED-Ed video created by Alex Gendler, some myths and misconceptions about evolution are explained in an easy to understand way.
While scientists welcome the constructive criticism of ideas, theories, and hypotheses, most of the time, when people are pointing out “errors” in evolution, their concerns arise from a misunderstanding of what evolution actually is. Even when people do accept the science of evolution, they frequently get things wrong. For instance, when talking about “survival of the fittest,” it is species (not individual organisms) that adapt to produce evolution.
In this short video, Alex Gendler sets the record straight on the finer points of evolution.
