Dr. Michael Denton on Evidence of Fine-Tuning in the Universe

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin sits down with Dr. Michael Denton, a Senior Fellow of the CSC who holds a Ph.D. in Biochemistry. Denton is the author of Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, which has been credited with influencing both Phillip Johnson and Michael Behe, as well as Nature’s Destiny: How the Laws of Biology Reveal Purpose in the Universe, which elaborates on the evidence of design in nature.

Finding Design in Nature

Andrew Brown’s comment on the debate I had with Michael Reiss missed a critical point. My contention is that “the purposeful arrangement of parts” to achieve a specific purpose is the criterion that enables us to recognise design. I argued that the conclusion of design in the bacterial flagellum and in many other biological systems is no different from discerning Read More ›

The Evidence for Molecular Machines

Dr. Michael Behe on The Case for a Creator discusses the changing view of cells from Darwin’s day until our own. No long believed to be a simple glob of protoplasm, the cell today is known to hold molecular machines and billions of units of DNA.

Response: 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

“Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial” is a special devoted to the Dover trial as Judge Jones saw it. While they promise to deliver the true story behind this dramatic trial, this program instead provides a lopsided, incomplete portrayal of the Dover trial based largely on Judge John E. Jones’ poorly argued and scientifically inaccurate ruling. Read More ›

The Edge of Evolution

From C-SPAN2’s Book TV, Michael Behe talks about his book, The Edge of Evolution: The Search for the Limits of Darwinism (Free Press). Behe argued that advancements in the science of genetics reveal that the process of evolution is driven far more by pre-existing design than by random mutation and natural selection, the foundations of Darwin’s theory of evolution. After 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 ›
