Having discussed the basic problems with irreducible complexity, I wanted to examine a paper published in the journal Protein Science that has been cited by the Discovery Institute as supportive of irreducible complexity and design. In reality, this paper is an incredible self-own and accomplishes the exact opposite of what the DiscoTute claims.
We also discuss Behe’s persistent misunderstanding of exaptation and natural selection, and read a defense of the notion of irreducible complexity.

I heavily relied on the work of biologist Kenneth Miller, and specifically Ed Brayton’s 2009 interview of Kenneth Miller, which was broadcasted on the Reasonable Doubts podcast. Here’s the link to that interview: https://player.fm/series/reasonable–doubts–podcast/rd33–darwin–day–with–ed–brayton–and–ken–miller
