Sorry for the misunderstanding George. The point that was made that night
was simply about errors also found in physics textbooks, and not that there
were in any way connected to evolution.

<http://www.escape.ca/~dcc/phys/errors.html> There was also an article in
our local papers several months ago about a team of physicists who went
through several textbooks and found some really ridiculous errors, and some
pretty substantial ones as well. Anybody remember that?
Thanks for the reference. I am of course quite aware that there are
errors in physics texts. I haven't checked out all of them in this listing
but many are of the "factor of c missing", "vector should have been printed
in boldface" &c type. I had assumed from the reference to such errors in
your original posts that you were referring to errors that had some
substantial connection with evolution. This does not seem to be the case &
the cited errors therefore have nothing to do with "icons of evolution".
