I think that people are a little hard on Behe - he asked the toughest question of evolutionary theory that a creationist has ever asked of it. It might have taken someone with an undergraduate level of education in cell biology almost a whole hour to find the answer. In many ways he did ToE a service as although his challenge was barely a credible one, he did help to publicise very nicely why and how the idea of ID was wrong. For the benefit of posters like Greenboy, Behe's challenge went something like this: While evolution predicts that life evolves in a series of small steps making gradual improvements, certain cellular structures (in particular the bacterial flagellum) are so complex that they could not have evolved, because if a single part is removed they would have no function whatsoever. They therefore must have been designed and created whole by a unnamed intelligent designer. He termed this irreducible complexity. So the challenge was clear - if no precursory structures to the bacterial flagellum exist, then we have a strong argument in favour of IC, if not then it is falsified. Unfortunately while Behe might (or might not, I don't know) be a half decent biochemist, his knowledge of celluar biology was seriously lacking as there are numerous known precursor structures tha we already know about such as the Type-III Secretory System, or T3SS which uses 10 of the flagellar proteins to construct a toxin-injection machine that some predatory bacteria use to kill other cells, and a structure called a Sex Pillus which bacteria use to exchange genetic material with each other. When presented with this evidence and cross examined in a court of law, Behe conceded that the science of Intelligent Design was intuitive rather than empirical in nature and more akin to the study of astrology.
