politics and society are, unfortunately, much the same thing

Darwin’s Black Box – The biochemical challenge to evolution.
evolution, creationism, science, scientists, intelligent design

The “irreducible complexity” of structures at a molecular level is a modern equivalent to Paley’s watch

Michael Behe is part of the intelligent design movement, who also include Phillip E Johnson, William A Dembski, Stephen C Meyer, Paul Nelson, Robert C Koons and Dr. Walter L Bradley.

Darwin admitted: “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely breakdown” (Darwin Origin of Species, 6th ed. NYU, 1988, p. 154).

“No one at Harvard University, no one at the National Institutes of Health, no member of the National Academy of Sciences, no Nobel prize winner–no one at all can give a detailed account of how the cilium, or vision, or blood clotting, or any complex biochemical process might have developed in a Darwinian fashion. But we are here. All these things got here somehow; if not in a Darwinian fashion, then how?” (Behe, Darwin’s Black Box, 187).
