Bacterial flagellum? Never heard of it.

When I wrote about Michael Behe’s shock that any sane person would associate the bacterial flagellum with intelligent design (Michael Behe’s “Secret Obsessions“), I failed to notice something that was staring me right in the face. The masthead for intelligent design blog Uncommon Descent:


Remember, if you meet someone who thinks intelligent design advocates

…think they [bacterial flagella] are examples of “intelligent design”

or that bacterial flagella have

…been at the center of the thinly veiled creationism movement called intelligent design,

you should

back away slowly, smiling, wishing him a nice day…
