Excellent Adventure: Behe Barnstorms Brazil


On a new episode of ID the Future, Darwin Devolves author and Lehigh University biochemist Michael Behe sits down with host Rob Crowther to discuss Behe’s recent speaking trip to Brazil, and where he sees the Darwinism/design debate heading in the next few years.

Oh, and check out these excellent travel snaps, courtesy of our friends Marcos Eberlin and the folks at Discovery Institute’s branch at Mackenzie Presbyterian University in São Paulo.

In their conversation, Behe enthuses about Brazilian food and hospitality, and says the students at the schools where he spoke were refreshingly open to considering the evidence for intelligent design. It was typical of what he finds elsewhere, he says.

There is a generational phenomenon that works in favor of ID. While the old guard digs in its heels, younger researchers tend to bring an open and “exploratory” attitude to his presentations, says Professor Behe. Same thing in the United States and elsewhere.
