The COVID-19 pandemic has many people wondering: Just what are viruses? How do they work? Can they easily evolve to become even more deadly? This afternoon at 3 pm Eastern Daylight Time, I will present the first lecture in a three-part series sponsored by the British Centre for Intelligent Design. You can join me by clicking here. I will discuss viruses in historical time, their basic biochemical design, where they came from, and what they might evolve into.

Senior Fellow, Center for Science and Culture
Michael J. 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.
