Michael Behe on How Darwin Devolves Everything from Birds to Bacteria

On this episode of ID the Future, biochemist Michael Behe discusses part 3 of his new book Darwin Devolves: The New Science about DNA That Challenges Evolution. Behe explains new research showing that although evolution really can bring about adaptive changes, it does so at the nickel-and-dime level of genus and species, and apparently only by breaking or degrading genes. Behe further argues that natural selection, supposed by evolutionists to be the great driver of new developments, actually limits them.

Michael Behe Takes on the Darwinian Add-Ons

On this episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid interviews biochemist Michael Behe about Part 2 of his new book Darwin Devolves: The New Science about DNA That Challenges Evolution. In this part of the book, Behe covers current theories for the origin of complex new interactive systems, from Neo-Darwinism and neutral theory to evo-devo and the multiverse hypothesis, and a few others as well.

Michael Behe, Revolutionary, Polar Bears and Evolution by Breaking Things

On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, Ray Bohlin and Michael Behe discuss the limits of evolution. Does evolution innovative by building things, or does it only innovate by breaking things? Behe demonstrates the surprising answer with a closer look at polar bears. Behe is the subject of an engaging science documentary now available online: Revolutionary. His new book, Darwin Devolves: The New Science About DNA That Challenges Evolution is available on Amazon.

Aristotle, Behe and Cells: The ABCs of Evolution’s Inadequacies

On this episode of ID the Future, biochemist Michael Behe talks with Andrew McDiarmid about Behe’s new book, Darwin Devolves: The New Science About DNA That Challenges Evolution. Behe shares about his thinking on evolution as a post-doc, talks about the history of biology, and discusses why the turn of the millennium has been the perfect time to gain knowledge about the foundation of evolution and life’s history.

Michael Behe: Mega-Plate Antibiotic Resistance Video – Evidence for Evolution?

On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, Sarah Chaffee interviews Michael Behe on a paper and accompanying video on antibiotic resistance published by the journal Science. Behe explains how antibiotic resistance demonstrates loss, not gain, of information.

Behe Responds to the Journal Science, Pt. 2: Darwin Devolves on Trial

On this episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid continues his conversation with biochemist Michael Behe, author of the newly released Darwin Devolves: The New Science About DNA That Challenges Evolution. Here Behe further presses the case that the review bypasses his book’s main point and that the reviewers appear to have misunderstood the plain language of one of his arguments in a previous book. Also, the reviewers claim that Behe hasn’t answered his critics’ objections on key points, a charge Behe shows is demonstrably false. Despite the negative review, Behe says he remains optimistic. Listen in to learn why. Please consider donating to support the IDTF Podcast.

The Journal Science Reviews Darwin Devolves. Behe Responds.

On this episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid interviews biochemist Michael Behe, author of the forthcoming Darwin Devolves: The New Science About DNA That Challenges Evolution (order here) to get his response to a review of the book that appeared in the prestigious journal Science. Behe says the review largely ignores the central point of his book; the reviewers fail to distinguish between claims that evolution built something, and explanations for how it could have built it; and they miss something crucial about lab experiments that engineer examples of evolution.

The Universe Next Door with Tom Woodward: Featuring Michael Behe

On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, Michael Behe is on The Universe Next Door with Tom Woodward to discuss his work that that presents a challenge to neo-Darwinian evolution, including his books Darwin’s Black Box and The Edge of Evolution. Behe explains his “irreducible complexity” concept, and also gives an overview of research by Richard Lenski that shows that random mutation is “like a bull in a china shop.”

Michael Behe’s Darwin Devolves: Evolution Works, But Nothing Like What They Claim For It

On this episode of ID the Future, Jay Richards interviews biologist and Center for Science and Culture senior fellow Michael Behe on his forthcoming book Darwin Devolves: The New Science About DNA That Challenges Evolution, available now for pre-order. Very recent advances in gene sequencing show that genetic mutations and natural selection sometimes work to create niche advantages, but by breaking genes, not by building new ones. It’s like increasing fuel efficiency by jettisoning things from your car: great if fuel efficiency is a matter of life or death, not so great if you actually wanted that back seat in there. And in any case, it isn’t how a car gets built in the first place. In the same way, Darwinian evolution can Read More ›
