Why Evolution Is True - Jerry Coyne AAI 2009

Jerry Coyne goes through these five parts of evolutionary theory showing that they are true by providing evidence from:
  1. The fossil record
  2. Vestigial organs
  3. Quirks of development
  4. Bad design
  5. Biogeography
  6. Examples of natural selection in "real time" 
He points out how the theory of evolution makes predictions that have been consistently verified by the data gathered, and we also learn about things that are puzzling except in the light of evolution.
