This episode features an interview with Lehigh University professor and biochemist Dr. Michael Behe about intelligent design and the bacterial flagellum. Dr. Behe discusses a recent article in Nature Reviews Microbiology which claims that the flagellum could evolve. Dr. Behe analyzes the arguments about the flagellum and finds that they do not support Darwin’s theory.

Behe is Professor of Biological Sciences at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania and a Senior Fellow at Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture. He received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Pennsylvania in 1978. Behe's current research involves delineation of design and natural selection in protein structures. In his career he has authored over 40 technical papers and three books, Darwin Devolves: The New Science About DNA that Challenges Evolution, Darwin’s Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution, and The Edge of Evolution: The Search for the Limits of Darwinism, which argue that living system at the molecular level are best explained as being the result of deliberate intelligent design.
