You would expect Richard Dawkins to attack intelligent design advocate Michael Behe's latest book with something approaching glee, but this New York Times review finds Dawkins in the position of having to kick someone while he's down.
Make no mistake: the review rakes Behe and his theories over the coals. But Dawkins suggests that reading the second book actually made him feel sorry for Behe, who was recently disowned by his academic department. "Trapped along a false path of his own rather unintelligent design, Behe has left himself no escape. Poster boy of creationists everywhere, he has cut himself adrift from the world of real science," he writes.
