Behe's Empty Box

Behe's Empty Box

Some years ago, John Catalano, of New York, was a kind of predecessor of Josh who ran a website which was a kind of predecessor of this one. One of the many good things John did was to maintain a section called "Behe's Empty Box". You might be surprised that it is necessary to pay attention to Behe. Unfortunately, it is. I frequently get letters from people who have read Darwin's Black Box and seem persuaded by it. It is very useful to refer them to Behe's Empty Box. It has not been maintained now for seven years but, since nothing worthwhile has come from Behe during that time, it is still very valuable and we are posting a link to it here.
