This has some good pictures: http://naturalselection.0catch.com/Files/Flagellum.html MGD
Watch the video - their reasearch is fascinating. Their focus is not on the motor itself, but how the fillament is constructed. The inner-workings of the motor remain largely unknown. Giff
Dr. Behe has commented that these types of computer representations are actually somewhat "cartooned" and that the real flagellum looks considerably more complex. I read this in his examination transcript on Day 10 (I think) of the Dover trial. Bombadill
These weren't created by ID people - hence no motivation at all to make it look artificially designed. An article on the research project is available here: http://www.nanonet.go.jp/english/mailmag/2004/011a.html Giff
How accurate are those computer generated animations compared with the real thing? I'm just worried that someone could claim that the animations have been made to make the flagellum look like an artificially designed system and that the real thing is quite different. Is there anything to compare it against? harvey
woah! There they are again. Either my mind (physical brain) is playing tricks on me, or something screwy is going on with this comment board. Bombadill
Well, my links dissapeared. Tester, if you'd like to post an email address, I'd be happy to send you some links to papers. Bombadill
That's hot ID on ID action. Bombadill
Certainly, Taster's Choice. You can begin your research with these: http://www.arn.org/docs/behe/mb_mousetrapdefended.htm http://www.arn.org/docs/behe/mb_selforganizationreplytoshanksandjoplin.htm http://www.trueorigin.org/behe01.asp http://www.arn.org/docs/behe/mb_trueacidtest.htm http://www.arn.org/docs/behe/mb_indefenseofbloodclottingcascade.htm Bombadill
Bombadill, Could you point me to the numerous papers that Behe has written invalidating flagella evolution, I want to get some HOT ID ACTION!!!!!!! testerschoice
Riiiight, ajl. Maybe Dr. Behe should have considered this elaborate 3D animation before writing numerous papers detailing how it couldn't have. ;) Bombadill
well, I guess that flagger assembly in the 5th video shows it really could be created in a step-by-step fashion ;-) ajl
Wow! That's good stuff regardless of what side of the debate you're on. crandaddy
