Secrets of the Cell

The elegance of nature: randomly evolved or purposefully designed? The answer lies in the cell. Michael Behe explores the building blocks of the life. Discover an unseen world of genetic coding, fabulous integrated systems, and astonishing machines. It’s not your typical biology class. It’s a five part series on complexity in nature: DNA, genes, mutation, and new science on the changes in a cell that change a species. More episodes ….

Socrates in the City

Discussing Darwin Devolves with Eric Metaxas

In his ongoing series Socrates in the City, Eric Metaxas interviews biochemist Michael Behe on “the new science about DNA that challenges evolution” as told in Behe’s book, Darwin Devolves.

What are the Limits of Evolution?

In this bonus footage from Science Uprising, Michael discusses his views on the limits of Darwinian explanations and the evidence for intelligent design in biology. Behe argues, in brief, that “It’s easy to break things, and often it gives a benefit.” Building new things, wonderful things, through an unintelligent process like Darwinian evolution is another matter entirely.


Science Uprising

Are chance mutations really “the key to our evolution” like they claim in the X-Men films? Or are there strict limits to what mutations can accomplish, limits that point to the need for an overarching designer and the failure of Darwinian evolution to create fundamentally new things? In this transmission of Science Uprising, Michael Behe takes a look at the real evidence for the supposed powerhouse of evolution. See more at scienceuprising.com.


Michael Behe and the Mystery of Molecular Machines

Revolutionary tells the story of biochemist Michael Behe and the revolution he helped spark with his book Darwin’s Black Box, inspiring a new generation of scientists and thinkers who are challenging Darwinian evolution and exploring evidence in nature of intelligent design. Learn about Behe’s journey, how those opposed to his ideas tried to kill intelligent design in federal court, and how recent scientific discoveries have vindicated and extended his work. 

Amazing Flagellum

Michael Behe and the Revolution of Intelligent Design

The bacterial flagellum has become an iconic example of the evidence against modern Darwinian theory as well as the evidence for intelligent design. Stephen Meyer, Scott Minnich and others scientists and scholars explore the facts about this amazing piece of nanotechnology, first made famous by biologist Michael Behe when he coined the phrase irreducible complexity.
