Thank you, Michael Behe

| 14 Comments | 1 TrackBack

Michael Behe has previously commented on his testimony in the Kitzmiller trial. He felt good about it; in fact, he thought it was exhilarating and fun.

I haven't the foggiest idea how the Judge will rule, but I think we got to show a lot of people that ID is a very serious idea.

Hmmmm…I wonder, what did the judge think of his testimony? Do you think there might be a way to, you know, find out?

Let's look in his decision for references to Behe! As it turns out, we owe a debt of gratitude to the good doctor of ID for the invaluable assistance of his testimony.

Okay, after going through the whole Kitzmiller decision last night, and damn, it's good. Really, incredibly good. This should be required reading. Jones' disgust at the whole thing comes through loud and clear. Read More

PZ, your page isn’t working!

ahh! how will i get my Pharyngula fix now?

It works sometimes. As you might guess, PT and Pharyngula are getting hammered with traffic right now…I’m getting through to my site OK, but with 20 second load times.

Man, I need to get this on a faster, better-tuned machine.

May I be the first to say bahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Triumphalism rules!

Question: Does this case have any impact on the legal status of teaching astrology in public school science classes? Were there pre-existing rulings covering this?

I certainly hope this ruling has nothing to do to go against the teachings of the Flying Spaghetti Monster!!!!!!!!!!!

PZ, if you ask for money from your readers to put towards a kick-ass computer, they will give! I can’t think of a better time to ask than now, given the results of the Dover case.

Thank you Michael Behe for saying: - That ID’s official position is that the designer need not be God but that YOU believe the designer is God. - That the “intelligent designer” works outside the laws of nature. - That the “plausibility of the argument for ID depends upon the extent to which one believes in the existence of God.” - That your broadened definition of science (to include supernatural explanations) would also embrace astrology.

Brilliant testimony indeed.

Heck. I don’t even remember what I tried to post.

Well, let me take this opportunity to voice my appreciation:

Heckuva job, Mikey!

We need someone to design a Michael Behe bobble head doll. I’d buy one!

Astrology Boy speaks in the Washington Post:

“It was a real disappointment,” biochemist Michael J. Behe, who testified in the trial, said from his office at Lehigh University. “It’s hard to say this chills the atmosphere, because if you’re publicly known as an ID supporter you can already kiss your tenure chances goodbye. It doesn’t help.”

Behe Wrote:

”…if you’re publicly known as an ID supporter you can already kiss your tenure chances goodbye.”

That’s the good news about the tenure system. The bad news is that if, like Behe, you wait until after you’ve been granted tenure to reveal that your concept of science includes ID and astrology, there’s not a damn thing your employer can do to get rid of you.

Okay, but the head can’t just bob up and down. It has to be rotary.

I hear geocentrists have trouble finding jobs, too. (shrug)

But hey, Dembski plans on getting rich from a sudden flood of donations to ID. Maybe he can help poor Behe out.
