Darwin’s Black Box thrust Michael Behe to the forefront of the intelligent design movement. The Lehigh University biochemist has haunted the dreams of Darwinists ever since. Each of his three books sparked a firestorm of criticism, in everything from the New York Times and the journal Science to the private blogs of professional atheists. Over the years, Behe has had a delightful time rebutting each attack, and now his responses are collected in a single volume entitled A Mousetrap for Darwin. The book’s title alludes to Behe’s homey illustration for his idea of irreducible complexity. A mousetrap with a missing part doesn’t work just a little worse. It doesn’t work at all. The same goes for the bacterial flagellum pictured on the cover of the new collection. Ditto for an

The Miracle of the Cell will explore yet another set of narrowly fine-tuned parameters that make human life — and all life — possible in an otherwise inhospitable universe. Dr. Denton will be interviewed on the subject of his new book and will answer audience questions submitted by readers like yourself.

The Science & Culture Network Chapter in Colorado, with support from Chapters in Houston and Southern California, invites you to join this upcoming webinar and Q&A with Center for Science & Culture Senior Fellow Paul Nelson. Dr. Nelson will explain the concept of design triangulation and explore its promising application to biological discovery. Here’s a thought to whet your appetite. Have you ever successfully figured out how something complicated worked by observing the system carefully and then inferring from what you can see to what you haven’t yet seen? If so, you have used a method of reasoning we can call design triangulation. Design triangulation is widely employed in biology (in practice, if not in name) to predict the functional features of cells or

The C.S. Lewis Fellows Program on Science and Society will explore the growing impact of science on politics, economics, social policy, bioethics, theology, and the arts during  the past century. The program is named after celebrated British writer C.S. Lewis, a perceptive critic of both scientism and technocracy in books such as The Abolition of Man and That Hideous Strength. Topics to be addressed include the history of science, the relationship between faith and science, the rise of scientific materialism, the debate over Darwinian theory and intelligent design, evolutionary conceptions of ethics, science and economics, science and criminal justice, stem cell research and abortion, eugenics, family life and sexuality, ecology and animal rights, climate

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.
