In an interview with Point of Inquiry, the host asks Behe if he’ll clarify whether, “just to be clear, you think the young earth creationists are completely wrong.”
“Uh, yes I do,” Behe confidently replies. He pauses, the interviewer gathers himself for the next question, and Behe (reaching deep into his rhetorical bag of tricks) adds: “Well, it depends what you mean by “completely.’ ”
He disagrees about the age of the earth, but agrees that “there is a God behind nature.” The ID he advocates is religious, it does not implicate (as he’s previously suggested) “an angel–fallen or not; Plato’s demi-urge; some mystical new age force; space aliens from Alpha Centauri; time travelers; or some utterly unknown intelligent being.” Intelligent design creationism is creationism, just not young earth creationism.
Later in the interview, he says that he thought his testimony in Dover went really well. The testimony in which he said ID is as scientific as astrology, and in which he literally pushed aside a stack of papers and books on immune system evolution, all the while insisting that (while he hadn’t read them) none of them could answer his questions.
