Dover hosts speaker on evolution

Dover hosts speaker on evolution
Professor defends intelligent design
(York Daily Record)
Behe, who said he was a Christian, also said he has no trouble accepting that the universe may have begun with a bang some 13 billion years ago. But he can accept this only if the igniter of the bang did so with a plan to get life to where it is today.

He also said he believes there is enough DNA evidence to support the idea that life could have come from a single source and that life is changing to meet the demands of a changing environment.

But, he said that may mean that God, or the designer, is creating through a “secondary means.”

God may work in mysterious ways, but I don’t think genetic drift is so enigmatic. Since we are talking about God, let’s leave sexual selection out of this. After all, his most popular progeny was parthenogenic.
