Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution
By Michael Behe
- The progress of science has involved a series of black boxes.
- A mechanism other than natural selection is needed to account for rapid, large-scale changes.
- Gradual evolution by natural selection is essential to Darwin’s theory.
- Darwin’s gradual evolution fails to explain biological systems that are irreducibly complex.
- Blood clotting is an irreducibly complex system.
- The transportation of proteins involves an irreducibly complex system.
- There is no published work that describes how irreducibly complex biochemical systems might have evolved.
- Biochemical systems demand an intelligent designer who knew what the systems would become before they were made.
