Darwin's Black Box
The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution
Darwin's black box: The biochemical challenge to Evolution Free Press 2006 352 ISBN: 0743290313 PDF 15 Michael J. Behe, a biochemist at Lehigh University,
presents here a scientific argument for the existence of God. Examining the evolutionary theory of the origins of life, he can go part of the way with Darwin--he accepts the idea that species have been differentiated by the mechanism of natural selection from a common ancestor. But he thinks that the essential randomness of this process can explain evolutionary development only at the macro level, not at the micro level of his expertise. Within the biochemistry of living cells, he argues, life is "irreducibly complex.
" This is the last black box to be opened, the end of the road for science. Faced with complexity at this level, Behe suggests that it can only be the product of "intelligent design."
