We all have that one friend who's still not 100 percent on board with evolution. You know, the kind that's always asking stuff like, "So, if we evolved from chimps, why do chimps still exist?" And, if you're anything like us, their eyes start to glaze over as soon as you give them a detailed, explanatory reply.

Thankfully, Caleb Trujillo over at Molecular Life Sciences has created this handy infographic, that lists the top five misconceptions about evolution, and explains (with diagrams!) why they're wrong. And it's designed to be shared - as Trujillo explained over at Version 1.0 of the infographic: "From my experience, most people who misunderstand evolution are actually misinformed about what science is and how it operates."
