One of the challenges for discussing evolution within evangelical Christian circles is that there is widespread confusion about how evolution actually works. In this installment, we examine evidence that proteins in irreducibly complex (IC) systems can form and refine new interactions through gradual mechanisms.

    Taken together, these results suggest that the ability to form new protein-protein interactions may be much easier than Behe has estimated.   Read More >

    In “The two binding-sites rule,” Behe lays out his argument for defining the “edge”– the limit of what random mutation and selection can do to create new... Read More >

    The researchers observed the irreducibly complex system form through “numerous, successive, slight modifications." The modifications didn't remove the system's function, but imp... Read More >
