Q&A with Behe: Your Thoughts on Common Descent?

This week we are posing questions to biochemist Michael Behe. Here he addresses one he gets all the time: Darwinism has a range of vulnerabilities, arguably including its assertion of universal common ancestry. Yet Professor Behe focuses his attack not there but on the Darwinian mechanism. Why?

He answers briefly and clearly as you’d expect. For everything you else could want to know about ID, Dr. Behe’s 41-part video course via DiscoveryU, “Michael Behe Investigates Evolution and Intelligent Design,” can’t be beat. Find more information about that here. A Thanksgiving present for the student or interested adult in your life? Great idea!
