the literature has no detailed rigorous explanations for how complex biochemical systems could arise by a random mutation and natural selection


Must we go through all this again? Behe's argument is nothing more than moving the goalposts. His book claims that it is actually impossible to produce an evolutionary pathway to the biochemical systems he highlights. These papers answer that question, whereupon Behe complains that they don't prove that they provide THE conclusive, historical path that was actually followed. This is a total red herring: Behe's claim of an unproved designer relies on the belief that no possible pathway exists. And that one is simply wrong.
