Behe’s gonna need some ice.

And a big reveal:

Well, I read Michael Behe’s new intelligent-design book Darwin Devolves a long time ago, as I was asked to review it for the Washington Post . But I couldn’t say that, of course, for it would reveal that I had a prepublication copy, and that means I was going to produce a review. One can’t say that in advance. Up to this point, instead of giving my own take on the book, I gave the take of others: Rich Lenski, Josh Swamidass, Nathan Lents, and so on. At last my own review is out.

Some people dismissed @Jerry_Coyne’s posts because “he hadn’t even read the book yet.” Turns out he did. There is more going on than meets the eye.

And none of our reviews compare to the one coming out any day now in Evolution, in my opinion, the most detailed and erudite take-down yet.
