Even though this helps her not at all (because I have yet to get any readers [I'm a pathetic beast, I am]), I would feel remissed if I did not link to a beautifully worded and elegant article by ERV. She responds to Michael Behe, who I can only describe as detestable at best for his fraudulent claim to be a scientist, all the while misrepresenting bad science and ignoring good science in his quest to debunk evolution. I really don't need to say much about it as she takes care of him so thoroughly that there is nothing left to explain.
I'm a little confused about Behe's motives in all of this. I suspect that he was never a particularly good scientist, knew this, and saw an opening in society as a "scientist"-spokesperson for intelligent design (ID). Pretty shrewd, but his bit is getting old as he seems to just be mailing it in these days. He doesn't even try to make a reasonable argument anymore. He makes it too easy for intelligent bloggers like ERV to tear him apart. I guess it was inevitable all along.
