It makes me think of Flock of Dodos where Intellegent Design proponents were pointing to debunked Embryonic Recapitulation as support for science being deceptive…. but they were not referring to contemporary textbooks (which made not mention of the faulty findings). It appears it isn’t just literature that prefers to read oldest to newest. Those who fear science may find comfort in being smarter than old texts.
