Thanks to News for posting this interview with Michael Behe. Here’s the money quote for me because it corresponds to my own expectation when I first started debating origins that someone would surely come along and explain to me why my commitment to ID is is naive because the evidence for Darwinism is so overwhelming (See my No Bomb After 10 Years post). Instead, the problems for the Darwinian side have only expanded. Starting at 3:30:
Q. It’s been about 18 years since you first presented the concept of irreducible complexity. That was in your book Darwin’s Black Box, I believe, and I’m wondering if you feel that it stood up to criticism. Do you feel that IC is as relevant in 2014 as it had been in 1996?
Behe: Yes, I do. I think the concept has stood up very well. As a matter of fact when I first published the book Darwin’s Black Box, I was expecting maybe a scientist or group of scientists to say, you know, well haven’t you read these group of papers that explains the problems you’re pointing out. But that never happened, and it’s been 18 years now and it still hasn’t happened. There’s been a lot of people replying, a lot of people saying look at this or consider this argument, but none of those – and I’ve considered them very carefully – none of those addresses the point . . .
