Here's a summary of Behe's new book, this time written by a pro-ID science writer, who writes:Because Behe's actual thesis is apt to get lost amid the smoke, noise, and mirrors these reviews have generated, I am going to take a moment to outline it briefly:Bet you didn't get from the hostile reviews, that Behe thinks evolution actually happens:He studies in detail a number of cases where Darwinian evolution is known to have occurred. That is, the exact mechanisms of the changes that took place in the malaria parasite, E. coli, and HIV have been identified, and the change appears to have been caused by natural selection acting on random mutations. The vast numbers and the swiftness with which these microorganisms reproduce enable a rate of evolution that is equivalent to millions of years of evolutionary time for larger organisms. Thus, an estimate of the limits of Darwinian change is possible.http://post-darwinist.blogspot.com/2007/07/2-edge-of-evolution-what-exactly-does.html
