Revolutionary, Michael Behe’s Intelligent Design Documentary Is Now Free Online!

Now, learn the story of the beginning of the intelligent design movement and the ongoing debate between Darwin’s theory and design in the documentary Revolutionary: Michael Behe and the Mystery of Molecular Machines – available for free online! Find it at revolutionarybehe.com. As we know, random changes and undirected natural processes routinely succeed in assembling functional equipment for a range of uses. Do you need, say, a new outboard motor? Just dump some of the necessary components in a field or something, give it a little time, and presto. Hook this baby up to your favorite recreational watercraft, and away you go! Wait…it doesn’t work that way? Why didn’t you tell us sooner? We were all set to go fishing this weekend. If that’s the Read More ›

Waiting Longer for Two Mutations

An interesting paper appeared recently in an issue of the journal Genetics, “Waiting for Two Mutations: With Applications to Regulatory Sequence Evolution and the Limits of Darwinian Evolution” (Durrett, R & Schmidt, D. 2008. Genetics 180: 1501-1509). As the title implies, it concerns the time one would have to wait for Darwinian processes to produce some helpful biological feature (here, Read More ›

Waiting Longer for Two Mutations

In the Abstract of their recent article, “Waiting for Two Mutations: With Applications to Regulatory Sequence Evolution and the Limits of Darwinian Evolution” (GENETICS 180: 1501–1509, 2008), Durrett and Schmidt write that one of their aims is “to expose flaws in some of Michael Behe’s arguments concerning mathematical limits to Darwinian evolution.” Their effort, however, is itself seriously flawed. They Read More ›

What NOVA Won’t Tell You about Dover

When John E. Jones decided in 2005 to “traipse into” the controversial area of evolution and science education, deciding the scientific merit of intelligent design as a federal court judge in Dover, PA, he may have only dreamed of the day when he would see himself on the silver screen. As the author of the 139-page verdict in the Kitzmiller Read More ›

Darwin’’s Black Box Celebrates New 10th Anniversary Edition

Seattle — Ten years ago, biochemist Michael Behe helped to launch the modern intelligent design movement. when he outlined the theory of irreducible complexity in his book Darwin’s Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution, which dared to question the basic tenets of Darwinism.   Arguing that unintelligent accounts failed to explain the development of irreducibly complex systems such as blood clotting, the Read More ›
