The Discovery Institute is continung with its revival of old Discoveroids from the past. This time it’s Michael Behe. He’s a Discovery Institute Senior Fellow and a professor of biochemistry at Lehigh University. 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, he 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 just found this gem at at the Discoveroids’ creationist website: Watch: Michael Behe Corrects Darwin’s Detour with a Cumulative Case for Intelligent Design, and it was written by Klinghoffer. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
The latest episode of Secrets of the Cell with Michael Behe is out now [Link omitted!], and that’s big news.
Yeah, big news indeed. Then Klinghoffer says:
But potentially even bigger is the release together of the entire first season, five episodes in one video, making a complete case for intelligent design in just a half hour.
Ooooooooooooh! — that is really big news! After that, Klinghoffer really gushes:
I had seen and admired each episode as it was released, much as you can admire each tile in a mosaic individually. But when the tiles are put together, the experience of seeing them is something quite different.
Throwing up yet? No? It’ll happen. Klinghoffer continues:
Dr. Behe, the Lehigh University biochemist, conducts viewers from the irreducibly complex wonders of a cell, with its molecular machinery greatly exceeding the sophistication of any human-designed factory, up through the mounting beauty and functionality of the organisms that depend on cells for life, from bugs to bears.
This is so wonderful! Let’s read on:
There isn’t just a negative argument here against evolutionary explanations founded on unguided processes, but a positive one, too. Biology aside, a “purposeful arrangement of parts” is how we recognize design in any area of our experience. The more intricate that arrangement, the more clearly it demands a verdict of design.
Your incredibly intricate carcass demands a verdict of design! Another excerpt:
As Behe notes, for thousands of years, the design of life was universally acknowledged by scientists and non-scientists, philosophers and physicians, young and old, religious and non-religious. Charles Darwin introduced a “detour” that is being corrected by Professor Behe and other scientists in the intelligent design community.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! All those scientists from thousands of years ago “universally acknowledged” the design of life. Darwin was a fool! And now we come to the end:
Watch the full half hour, and share it, and then watch the latest episode, “Bacteria: Superheroes of the Microbial World.”
The video is embedded in the Discoveriod post. You wanna see it? Okay, click over there and be amazed. Then come back and tell us all about it.
