August 2006 marks the ten year anniversary of Dr. Michael J. Behe's best-selling book Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution. In celebration of the 10 years of this book, a 10th aniversary edition of the book has been released with a new afterward written by Behe.
Darwin's Black Box was named by National Review and World magazines as one of the 100 most important books of the 20th Century. In addition it has received much praise from both friends and foes. Here is just a sampling of that praise:
"Michael Behe has done a top-notch job of explaining and illuminating one of the most vexing problems in biology: the origin of the complexity that permeates all of life on this planet.... This book should be on the essential reading list of all those who are interested in the question of where we came from, as it presents the most thorough and clever presentation of the design argument that I have seen."
-Robert Shapiro, author of Origins: A Skeptic's Guide to the Creation of Life on Earth
"[A] valuable critique of an all-too-often unchallenged orthodoxy."
-James Shapiro, National Review
"No one can propose to defend Darwin without meeting the challenges set out in this superbly written and compelling book."
-David Berlinski, author of A Tour of Calculus
Thank you to Dr. Behe for his exceptional book. It is a challenge against Darwinian evolution that cannot go unnoticed. Thank you and best of luck to Dr. Behe in the future.
