ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how naturalist Charles Darwin's evolutionary theory should be more aptly described as evolutionary science in the 21st century. The authors argue that limiting biology by referring to Darwin limits the scope of 150 years of scientific findings including genetics, information theory, population dynamics, and molecular biology. They argue that educators and scientists should carefully choose their words when debating against arguments presented by defenders of creationism and intelligent design.
