Please don't say "only a theory". This is not an episode of Miss Marple Mysteries with a "theory" of the murder. A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment. Such fact-supported theories are not "guesses" but reliable accounts of the real world.

I find it hilarious that in 2018 people still fail to grasp the concept of a scientific theory and what it actually means. Basically it's a fact, proven and repeated time and again, evolution is not a myth, not a concept, not an unproven idea, it's just evolution. You can either get on board and accept evolution or you can be wrong, there is no other answer.

I like the clue too, and if the other people shown were labeled scientist, monarch and comedian I wouldn't have had a problem with it. I just think it's awfully sneaky to show four people while looking for three names and one concept. And considering the low % correct I see that I am not alone. There is a time and a place for cleverness, but this wasn't it.

Agreed. I thought I was supposed to be coming up with a name, not a field of study. Every other portrait in this quiz is looking for a name. Could I answer "talk show" for Ellen's picture?

Nice quiz, but I don't understand the "red cross" for England. My own lack of British history probably. or the fact that dinner is delayed. Actually, that might help.

If you really want to have your mind blown, look up the flags for England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Put them together and it's the UK flag.

The Wales flag is a picture of a dragon for some reason though...

So the last picture quiz I did, I thought Charles Dickens was Charles Darwin...this time I looked and though...well this guy looks like Darwin too! Maybe all old guys with long beards look like Darwin to me and I stopped trying to guess. Didn't realize you were looking for evolution.

Yeah I was thinking of the man's name, since he looked familiar and I had a feeling it was Charles Darwin, but it didn't start with E so I didn't acknowledged Evolution. They should've made the picture like the progression from the monkey to the human.

Charles Evolution must have had wonderful family get-togethers. There's Johnny Evolution, Alice Evolution, Mario Evolution. The Evolution genealogy must have been something.

Don't have an issue with any clues in the quiz. Nobody states that the answer to a photo of a person MUST be the persons name....... I saw the clue and knowing the quiz instantly knew the answer would be evolution........... Sometimes you just need to think less obviously.
