“Revolutionary” Michael Behe Tours Florida
Over 500 Floridians came out to hear biochemist Michael Behe in a pair of Tampa Bay premieres of the new documentary Revolutionary, followed by Q&A sessions that went on for an hour or more at two locations.
At the University of South Florida, the discussion period was “fantastic,” according to one organizer, and the time allotted had to be extended. Many who knew little of design theory, or who had doubts based on limited previous awareness, were on hand. At a gathering at Calvary Church in Clearwater, the interest was such that an hour-long Q&A had to be extended as well.
Dr. Behe described a number of irreducibly complex systems besides the flagellum, including intracellular transport systems. Each of these displays the hallmarks of exquisite complexity that cannot plausibly be developed step-by-step by an unguided Darwinian mutation/selection pathway.
