Complexity can arise without intelligent design, but complexity is not the same thing as design.
Huu-whaaaaa? He clearly didn’t run that by Michael Behe. Because, according to Behe, and virtually all other ID proponents, complexity is the one thing you can use to determine design. That has been their entire argument – life is “too complex” to have arisen without a designer. Now Egnor, writing in the Discovery Institute’s own paper, states clearly that this is not true. And I didn’t take it out of context – read the whole thing. Finally, Egnor says something sensible. Although one wonders how such a blunder was allowed to slip in.
I’m bookmarking that page for the next time some creationist insists life is “too complex” to have arisen without a designer. “Complexity can arise without intelligent design” – official, The Discovery Institute.
