Michael Behe Featured on Michael Medved

Michael Behe was featured on the Michael Medved Show this week to talk about his new book, Edge of Evolution: The Search for the Limits of Darwinism, and the audio is now available here.

Bringing up the way evolution has been popping up in the presidential debates, Michael Medved had the fortunate insight to note that this isn't an issue about evolution per se. Behe was able to respond by clarifying the debate with the right question to ask: is life the result of purpose or an accident?

Another question is provoked by the book's title: Where is the edge of evolution? Michael Behe explains that there exists a dividing line between randomness and design in life. Since Darwin first posited his theory, the arguments for the creative power of natural selection acting on random mutation have been unconstrained by data. Now we have the first large-scale studies which provide boundaries for evolution.

Edge of Evolution promises to be as insightful and provocative as Behe's Darwin's Black Box, and now you have the chance to come meet Michael Behe at a special reception and discussion of Edge of Evolution. The book party will be held on Wednesday, June 13th from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Discovery Institute's Washington DC office, located at 1015 Fifteenth Street, NW Suite 900.
