Ken Miller is a cell biologist at Brown University. Miller is probably the most well known critic of ID, in part, due to his books Finding Darwin’s God and Only a Theory, his participation in the Dover trial, and his skill as an entertaining and charismatic science communicator.
Miller has vigourously sparred with many key ID proponents in print and in person for over a decade. Most of his response to ID has been directed at Michael Behe and his claims about the irreducible complexity of the bacterial flagellum, the blood clotting cascade, and the limits of neo-Darwinian mechanisms.
Miller’s criticisms of ID seem very strong on the surface, and are often cited as knockdown arguments. However, a closer examination of his critiques reveals a lack of substance and some deep misunderstandings.
Here are Miller’s published and recorded responses to ID, followed by responses to his work from ID theorists and others:
