Perhaps the best known of the scientific arguments against the master narrative of evolution is the work of the biochemist, Michael Behe, who argues that there are specific life forms (., the cell) and biotic subsystems which are, in his terms, "irreducibily complex," and which could not possibly be brought about by means of natural selection.Irreducibly complex systems and life forms disclose "intelligent design" and lead us, ineluctably, to the existence of a designer.
