The idea of the book is not merely to dunk on the critics. Michael Behe, to be frank, doesn’t find of any their criticisms very meaningful.
“The man is fearless in pursuing lines of reasoning that are considered taboo by current standards.”
“A brilliant indictment of scientific groupthink by an unapologetic intellectual dissident.”
“He is saying that critics of Darwin should allow themselves to be abused — by non-scientists like Kevin Williamson — and just take it.”
Oh, it’s very difficult to concede that you were mistaken about something. Especially, I would say, for males.
