What IS false is to claim that the embryos of various creatures do not resemble one another.

One would serve themselves well by not believing everything they read on some creationist web site or read in a creationist book.

Who did the research?


The big fuss over this comes form the the late 19th century drawings of Haeckel. He had embellished them to help 'prove his point' - ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny.

Bad drawings notwithstanding, vertebrate embryoes do in fact retain/exhibit features in common with each other, and Haeckel's OrP has long been discredited. It is therefore no surprise that the creationists still bring it up - it is easy to whip a strawman.
