The Non-Controversy Continues to be Controversial

Michael Behe's op-ed in yesterday's New York Times seems to have hit a nerve. Or two. Or three. Or perhaps all of them, if you're a Darwinian dogmatist. Here's a few. ID Hits the Times Op-Ed, Science Tuesday, De-Sign of the Times, ID is a "rival theory".

There were some blogs cheering Behe's piece as well, most prominently the Evangelical Outpost. EO writes:

ID in the NYT -- Today's New York Times presents an editorial by Michael Behe that does what no major media outlet has bothered to do: allow a prominent advocate of the theory to explain what Intelligent Design really is.
Behe's op-ed was the number two most e-mailed article from the Times' website yesterday. Who says there's no controversy?
