Re: Irreducibly Complex Edition (John McWhorter & Michael Behe)

Behe is a scientist, so yes, he uses scientific terms. I'm afraid I don't understand your point.



There have been ongoing attempts to do that, none sucessfully. IC is central to ID and is a...

Re: Irreducibly Complex Edition (John McWhorter & Michael Behe)

Attemps are constantly being made, and the TTSS hypothesis has been injected with its own toxins, multiple times. There is absolutely no evidence of flagellar precursers, or an ancestral form. ...

Christianist trolls? You're making an assumption my friend. But since I'm science oriented, I'd be glad to debate andthing you'd like to post to support your position. IC, random mutations, name it.

Re: Irreducibly Complex Edition (John McWhorter & Michael Behe)

Re: Irreducibly Complex Edition (John McWhorter & Michael Behe)
