ABSTRACT
The article assesses the fundamental claims of intelligent design theorist Michael Behe that biochemical complexity is irreducible and that it is impossible to scientifically explore its emergence. The author reviews various attempts by researchers of developmental biology to explain the emergence of complex systems, refuting Behe's claim that there are no possible evolutionary explanations for these phenomena. A critique is provided of Behe's survey parameters and use of sources including "Origins of Order," by Stuart Kauffman.
