Pofile of Michael Behe

The Washington Post has a profile of Michael Behe dated yesterday. You can guess the tone of it by the fact that the first sentence claims that he has been "ridiculed as a quack by the scientific establishment." Behe personally? His whole body of research? I think not.

It does include this quote:
"The fact that most biology texts act more as cheerleaders for Darwin's theory rather than trying to develop the critical faculties of their students shows the need, I think, for such statements," Behe said.
And it notes:
Behe said he was a believer in Darwin when he joined Lehigh in 1985, but became a skeptic after reading Michael Denton's book "Evolution: A Theory in Crisis."

At least they hint at the fact that he doubts Darwinian theory because of the science.
