What you're doing here is calling what amounts to a textbook definition of evolution by natural selection "unsubstantiated belief", never mind the fact that it's an observed phenomenon.

What I'm calling unsubstantiated belief is the power of evolution by natural selection to produce anything but small changes within a limited area. What observed phenomenon did you have in mind?

The bit you quoted and then called an unsubstantiated belief.

Your Behe quotes change nothing about what I said regarding his arguments.

On the contrary, Behe says quite clearly that he thinks IC systems can not evolve from precursors, and that his conclusion is that they must be designed with the end-product in mind.
