Chapter 3: Michael Behe and John Sanford

On pages 51-2 of The Greatest Hoax on Earth Sarfati summarises biochemist Michael Behe's book The Edge of Evolution, which argues human evolution is not possible even over millions of years.  On pages 56-8 Sarfati summarises plant geneticist John Sanford's book Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome, which argues that the accumulation of bad mutations means the human genome cannot be very old.

Both of these books (and their problems) are addressed in an extensive review by chemical engineer Scott Buchanan: 

'Assessing limits to evolution and to natural selection: reviews of Michael Behe's Edge of Evolution and John Sanford's Genetic Entropy' (2010)
