RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $4200Goal: $6000

The Edge of Evolution
Michael Behe.

In 2007, intelligent design advocate Michael Behe posted a series of "questions" and answers regarding his book The Edge of Evolution on his Amazon author page (found at archive.org). In the series of questions and answers, he asked himself about his opinions on naturalistic evolution, such as how powerful he thought it could be and what he perceived to be its limits. He also asked himself how ID differs from creationism, despite the fact that in the field of science, and increasingly in courts of law, there is no difference.

Many of Behe's arguments are points refuted a thousand times, whereas others appear to stem from him jumping to a conclusion when the evidence is neither conclusive nor convincing. In this article, we look into Behe's questions and answers and offer refutations of them.
