Myths of evolution?

Apparently, some people on this list think that the theory of evolution is
something of a myth. Fine. But, surely, there is more to it than that. For
example, some will say that it is a myth that the Earth has been around for
billions of years, or they will agree that microevolution occurs but regard
macroevolution as a myth. What I want to do here is try to get as many myths
of evolution as possible in one place (starting perhaps with the two in this
paragraph). Here are a few more to get you started:

* The myth that every feature of living things can be evolved.

* The myth that evolution can increase genetic information.

* The myth that the origin of consciousness can be explained by evolution.


Any more that you can think of?
