The Discovery Institute is on a campaign to persuade the world that they’ve accomplished a scientific revolution, and the genius responsible for this is Michael Behe, a Discoveroid Senior Fellow.
Behe is a professor of biochemistry at Lehigh University. He has tenure, so he’s never been Expelled. His colleagues at Lehigh are so impressed by his brilliance that they publicly disassociated themselves from him by issuing this statement: Department Position on Evolution and “Intelligent Design”. Also, as most of you know, Behe was the Discoveroids’ star witness in Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District. We wrote about his catastrophic appearance there in Michael Behe’s Testimony.
We thought the Discoveroids’ campaign to glorify Behe had climaxed recently when we wrote The Ultimate Discovery Institute Post, but we were wrong — it appears that they’ve only just begun. This ludicrous post appears at their creationist blog: Milestones of the Revolution. Of course it was written by David Klinghoffer, a Discoveroid “senior fellow” (i.e., flaming, full-blown creationist), who eagerly functions as their journalistic slasher and poo flinger. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
John West was on the radio program The Universe Next Door with host Tom Woodward to talk about the making of Revolutionary: Michael Behe and the Mystery of Molecular Machines, which Dr. West wrote and directed. It’s a new podcast episode of ID the Future. [Link omitted.]
Wowie — Westie was on the radio! Then Klinghoffer says:
The hour-long documentary is now free online. [And worth every penny!] West alludes mysteriously to a sequence in the film, “Milestones of the Revolution,” which when you see it at the conclusion of this three-act drama — and it really is a scientific drama — may give you chills. See it all here: [Video at the Discoveroid post].
What could those “milestones” be? We haven’t seen the “documentary,” but perhaps it’s something like this: Step One: Behe is potty-trained. Step Two: Behe becomes a creationist. Step Three: Behe dazzles the world with his testimony in the Kitzmiller case. Step Four: ??? Anyway, Klinghoffer tells us:
Behe’s story is about much more than the bacterial flagellum. As John West points out, the film serves as an entry point for considering the argument for intelligent design in nature much more broadly, as that case is made by Stephen Meyer, Douglas Axe, Günter Bechly, and other ID proponents.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] Behe is so important!
Here’s how Klinghoffer ends his post:
The accompanying website, [link omitted], is well stocked with additional essays and other information to start you on your way to learning about the full sweep of evidence for ID.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! “Full sweep” is an appropriate term.
There’s no way to conclude this post except by presenting you with a challenge. Your task, dear reader, is this: If Behe is a scientific revolutionary, what other notable figures can you name who have made comparable contributions to science? Yes, of course there’s the Time Cube guy, but who else can you name?
