Only the position of the sun rays hitting the earth as it revolves. So should the tilt of the earth change, we would burn or freeze to death. Seasons have little to do with the tilt. Climate is what results from tilt. Seasons have to do with the revolving of the sun. Evolution can't explain this, but it explains other things.

If the Earths tilt changes the solar flux would remain the same assuming that the tilt change wasnt accompanied by a change in the distance from sun to earth this means the amount of incident energy/time remains the same the only difference would be in the distribution...

Since all life isnt baked to a crisp at the equator or frozen to death in the polar regions it seems a safe enough inference that life would exist at different axial tilts....

I thought this one WAS spurious....

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.

Yeah that was what I was thinking of glad to hear that was an exageration rather than a fabrication...
