Michael Behe on Viruses, COVID-19, and Evolution

Online Event
In this online Zoom webinar, Dr. Behe will review the biochemistry of viruses in general and COVID-19 in particular. He will use these topical examples to illustrate a fundamental principle: Darwinian and other unintelligent evolutionary mechanisms can change life marginally, in ways that are medically important, yet they cannot explain life’s complex structure. Rather, the elegant molecular structures of life required purposeful intelligent design. The Colorado, Houston, and Southern California Chapters of Discovery Institute’s Science & Culture Network are pleased to host this upcoming event.
