Ernst Haeckel’s drawings, which are usually used to support this idea, were shown to be fabricated. True embryos are very distinct, unlike the way Haeckel drew the pictures. 1

- Sarfati, 1999, p. 85: “However, in 1997, a detailed study by Mike Richardson and his team, including actual photographs of a large number of different embryos, showed that embryos of different kinds are very distinct (see illustration on next page).
Thus, the only way for Haeckel to have drawn them looking so similar was to have cheated. This study was widely publicized in science journals and the secular media, so a book published in 1998 has no excuse for being unaware that the idea of extensive embryonic similarities is outdated and based on fraud.” ↩
