A bit of an update on this story: A creationist named MarioNovak recently joined the board, and inadvertently provided a link to an article that challenged Behe's claims about the evolution of chloroquine resistance. The significance is that this article actually provided the sort of calculations of the likelihood of a CCC arising thru evolutionary processes that he demanded in his "challenge" to PZ Myers, Ken Miller and other evolutionary scientists. And even though Behe makes no mention of this in his challenge, we know he was aware of this article because he actually wrote a letter to editor in response, which was published in the journal.

This is all detailed in the following thread, which also includes much other hilarity, and plagiarism besides!
