Michael J. Behe is Professor of Biological Sciences at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania and a Senior Fellow at Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture. He received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Pennsylvania in 1978. Behe’s current research involves delineation of design and natural selection in protein structures.
In his career he has authored over 40 technical papers and three books:
- Darwin Devolves: The New Science About DNA That Challenges Evolution
- The Edge of Evolution: The Search for the Limits of Darwinism
- Darwin’s Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution
In turn, each volume has built on the evidence that living system at the molecular level are best explained as being the result of deliberate intelligent design. The books have been reviewed by the New York Times, Nature, Philosophy of Science, Christianity Today, and many other periodicals. Darwin’s Black Box has sold over 250,000 copies and was internationally reviewed in over one hundred publications. Both National Review and World magazine named it as one of the 100 most important books of the 20th century.
