ID Slammed in Aussie Media (2 comments)

And for good reason. The money quotes:

The Ever-Popular Argument from Personal Incredulity
Prof. Michael Behe: It’s very hard to see how something like a mousetrap could be put together by the tiny steps that Darwin envisioned with each step being better than the last.
The Growing Watershed-Type-Movement Thingie
Prof. Michael Behe: There are not that many people who are actively involved in it. Probably, oh maybe a handful you know, five to ten, something like that.
And this chap's the one they put on the stand?

  • The Paul Willis (Journalist and paleontologist) working for the Australian ABC is NOT an unbiased observer in the Catalyst program. Paul Willis was the Australian Skeptic of the year, and staunch defender of the faith(less), that is evolution. Answers in Genesis' Dr. Carl Weiland debated him several years ago, and AiG have that debate on video/DVD for all to see Paul Willis' credentials as a public uhm, speaker? Judge for yourself... or see Answers in Genesis website for more info about the reliability of Mr. Willis and his 'science'.

  • A little poison for the well, eh? Note that the citations are straight from the horse's ass. Behe incriminates ID rather nicely on his own.
