9. Yes it does not meet the test of a scientific theory
or even a hypothesis (they had their chance with Kitzmiller). All of the pieces were in place - they even had a Reagan appointed judge, but they chickened out at the last minute leaving poor Michael Behe to get pummelled by himself (poor flagellum guy). The science since Kitzmiller has not been kind to Behe as even more evolutionary paths have been demonstrated for the flagellum (which actually independently evolved several different times). The problem is that the visual representations of the flagellum look so mechanical - it really does not look like that.
