The Case of Darwin's Finches
One of the most striking pieces of evidence for Darwin's Evolution of Species was his observations of finches and how their beaks differed from island to island, depending on their primary food sources. So what would happen to the theory of evolution if it turns out, as new evidence shows, that Darwin didn't actually see any finches at all?
