Why Evolution Is True

Jerry Coyne isn't the most fluent speaker, but he does get the point across in the following (long) video.  I've meant to order and by his book Why Evolution Is True but I've been so busy lately that I know I wouldn't get around to reading it for a while anyway.

He covers the evidence for the five aspects of evolution theory, evidence which makes evolution true.

It is a real shame that so many people deny evolution and farcical that many feel the need to show their willful ignorance on the internet with tired comments on Youtube videos or forums.  Denying evolution goes hand in hand with overall ignorance and the maintaining of religious bigots with their idiot religious based discriminatory laws.
