Darwin’s Black Box Michael J. Behe (The Free Press )
There have been a number of serious challenges to the popularized theory of evolution, but Michael Behe, Associate Professor of Biochemistry at Lehigh University, has raised one of the most formidable. Microbiology is a relatively new field. Darwin and his successors (until the last two decades) knew nothing of the inner construction of the molecule. They simply assumed that molecules would cooperate in the grand scheme of development from non-life to life; from simple to complex; and from a few organisms to great numbers (hence the black box). He demonstrates the principle of irreducible complexity of the molecule. Every molecule is a complex mechanism that will only function holistically. The idea of an incomplete molecule waiting around for a needed component is an absurdity. This crucial book is in its 16th printing.
